Happy Birthday! Former World Champion...
We almost forgot!!
This champion was born in Leningrad.
He learned how to play at 5 years old, on a train that was evacuating the city during WWII !
He actually defeated Mikhail Botvinnik (a world champion himself) at age 10 !
He went on to become Champion of the World for three years.
And he lost his crown to a very famous American.
And he was born today...so who is he?

You're on the honor system...SO DON'T CHEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
