Noong kapanahunan ko na wala pang internet, facebook, blog at twitter na mapag-kakaabalahan pag lunch break o vacant period sa College, chess ang paborito kong laro. Siyempre mga lalaki lang ang kalaro ko dahil yong mga kasamahan kong mga goirls ay abalang makipag-usap sa phone o magtsismisan. Yong supervisor ko masyadong serious mag-isip, ilang minuto bago siya mag-move kaya nakakapagbasa pa ako ng diyaryo o mamasyal sa toilet. Ahem. Yong boss ko libre akong maglaro ng chess kalaban siya kahit na oras ng trabaho.
Ang aming idolo noon si Bobby Fischer na biglang nawala. Ang di ko alam sa Pilipinas lang pala nagtago at nakisama sa isang Pinay. Pero bakit hindi raw si Bobby Fischer ang tatay eh nagsama sila noong ipinanganak yong bata. May kababalaghan bang nangyari?
LONDON - DNA tests have shown that chess genius Bobby Fischer was not the father of a 9-year-old girl from the Philippines, bringing a paternity claim against his estate to a close, two lawyers familiar with the case said.
The test result was announced in Reykjavik District Court, lawyer Gudjon Olafur Jonsson, who represents Fischer’s two American nephews in their own claim on his estate, said Tuesday.
Fischer’s remains were exhumed in July so samples could be taken to determine if he had fathered Jinky Young, whose mother Marilyn said she had a relationship with the chess icon. Jinky, who lives in the Philippines with her mother, flew to Iceland last year to provide her own sample.
“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.
