Teen-Ager Wins National Chess Title
Teen-Ager Wins National Chess Title NEW YORK OP) Fifteen-year- old Bobby Fischer, the Brooklyn whiz kid, won his second straight National chess championship Sunday when he drew with Robert Byrne of Indianapolis in 28 moves. That gave Fischer an 8-2 record. Bobby didn't lose a match, but a draw counts a half point in the losing column. Samuel Reshevsky of New York, the only grand master competing, finished second with Vh-2-Vi. His only loss was to Fischer. He drew with Paul Benko, a Hungarian refugee, in 14 moves in his final match.
