"Played May 1964 in Philadelphia at Northeast Philadelphia Chess Club. Approximately 70 boards simultaneous match (I believe the event was staged at the Cheltenham Art Center ). If I recall there was one draw vs. our club president who was a grand master and Bobby won the rest...Playing Fischer was a gift from my father for my 11th birthday, which was the next day May 4. I was an avid chess player at the time, and went on to win Philadelphia city title in 1964 and 1965." - Anthony Killian

4) Mechanics Member Kyle Shin wins US Championship for Grade 5 by Michael Aigner
Perhaps California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger played "the Terminator" in the movies, but San Francisco's Kyle Shin deserves that nickname at the chess board. He survived the jungle of upsets in 5th Grade at the National K-12 Championships in Orlando, not by firing an Uzi but by confusing his opponents with a hail of tactics. Somehow, he was the only of the top six seeds to survive the first two days of competition unscathed at 5-0.
Talented Kyle finished near the top in previous years, but this time his final score of 6.5 out of 7 was sufficient for undisputed first place! Having fulfilled one chess dream at the Magic Kingdom, Kyle's next goal no doubt should be to bring his 1923 USCF rating up to expert level.
