Fischer contemplating the next move

The remains of the US-born chess champion Bobby Fischer have been exhumed in Iceland to assist with the decision regarding a particularly tricky move in a game being staged in Reykjavik.

Fischer, who was 118 years old when he died unexpectedly in 2008, knew everything there was to know about chess, and if he didn't know it, then it really wasn't worth knowing.

His body was exhumed on Monday, and taken to a safe location where he could study the move in isolation. The match is being played between 9-year-old Jinky Young and several of Fischer's relatives, with a $2m purse at stake.

Olafur Helgi Kjartansson, the sheriff in the southern Icelandic town of Selfoss, said:

"The procedure was conducted in a highly professional and dignified manner. Bobby is having a look at the way the match is going, and will come to a decision over the next move quite soon. We hope to have him back underground by Friday."
