The Bobby Fischer® Ultimate Chess Set has a long and storied history. First brought about by Dewain R. Barber and Jay Blem to give the chess market a sturdy, reliable tournament set that would not break the bank. The pieces are ergonomically engineered to feature smooth surfaces and seamless edges to make extended games a joy to play. The large-headed pawns and bishops, and the grooved knight’s stem are easier to grasp. Heavy and durable, this set became the iconic chess set here in the USA. The original pieces are making their debut in a new metal form with these beautiful silver and black metal plated pieces. The king has been increased to 3.75 inches. The base size widened so the weight could be increased. At 9.5 lbs., it is one of the heaviest chess sets for its size on the market.
