Chess Legend Bobby Fisher not a father of a Filipina

Chess legend Bobby Fisher was not the father of a Filipina, as DNA tests results have shown. This was announced in Reykjavik District Court recently, after the remains of Fisher were exhumed last July, 2010 so samples will be tested to determine if he is the father of a certain Jinky Young.

It can be remembered that after Fisher’s death in 2008, a tussle over his property began between his nephews, Marilyn Young, and Miyoko Watai, Japanese Chess Association’s head who reportedly married the chess player in 2004. This is in spite of the fact that he did not leave behind any will, with property worth $2 million.

“I can confirm that the result of the DNA report excluded Bobby Fisher from being the father of Jinky Young, and therefore the case has come to a close,” said lawyer Thordur Bogason, who represents Jinky.

Bobby Fisher, who is considered as one of the best player in the world, became world famous in 1972 after defeating Boris Spassky of the Soviet Union for the world chess championship tournament. He was born in America and became the youngest chess grandmaster at the age of 15.

But during his later years, he became erratic and released anti-American statements. In 2004, he was arrested by Japanese immigration authorities for allegedly using a revoked US passport while trying to board a plane to the Philippines.

In 2005, he was granted a passport by the Iceland government where he stayed until he died at the age of 64.
