A Rook House for Bobby

Last week we had Madonna's Ray of Light, this week, courtesy of Angus, we have I Like Trains' "A Rook House for Bobby".



Bonus quiz question: Who can identify the game?


I think Angus knows. I certainly don't.

Some Spassky-Fischer game i think.

Off the top of my head I'd guess Timman-Kasparov.

*Spassky-Fischer 1992, for absence of confusion.

Blimey. Why pick a game in which White played so badly?

It's the last game from Fischer - Spassky rematch isn't it.

Fischer's last ever unless they play match III in 2012 of course.

That would explain why they chose it anyway.

Ah, OK, that'd make sense.

Fischer once said that he wanted to live in a house shaped like a Rook, I believe. This attracted some kind of psychoanalytic explanation, although I fail to remember the details...
