Bobby accidentally found a book which was written about how to play chess games while he played out. After that, he studied that book seriously. Since Bobby’s family moved to a two-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn, the talented boy Bobby had been so engrossed in the chess game that his mother was worried because she feared her son had often stuck himself in the room alone. 

Finally, she made a postcard and sent it to one of the most famous press in America, the Brooklyn Eagle newspaper to book an ad place. The postcard was written about whether there are the same-age children of Bobby who were keen on playing chess with him. But the press rejected her requirement because it was not a type of news and they don’t know where that information should be put on. 

However, they helped her to transfer this information to Hermann Helms, the “Dean of American Chess” and Helms told her that there was an exhibition which was organized on January 17, 1951, and the former Scottish chess champion, Master Max Pavey was an attendant also. Bobby Fischer played in that exhibition but he lost after a 15-minute attempt. 

After finishing that match, Carmine Nigro - Brooklyn Chess Club President expressed his impression of Bobby’s ability of chess playing and Nigro invited him to join the club and started to teach him advanced skill sets of chess playing. In 1952, Fischer's first chess tournament was hosted at Nigro’s home in the year of 1952. Fischer joined the Manhattan Chess Club when he was 12 years old and Nigro had accompanied Bobby until Nigro passed away in 1956. 

When speaking of the first teacher, Bobby said that “ Mr. Nigro was possibly not the best player in the world, but he was a very good teacher. Meeting him was probably a decisive factor in my going ahead with chess.”
