About This Show

Inspired by a chess match between Boris Spassky and Bobby Fisher which took place in Iceland in 1972, Chess is the fictional love story about a Russian chess champion who fell in love with the female second (and lover) of the American player. This all with the underlying suspense of the East-West conflict typical of the cold war period.
