    They showed a lot of chess related people involved with all this. Did you read the comments?

    Those people basically absolved Fischer saying the US gov't was after him and he had to find a safe haven for his money. But the PM of Iceland was forced out of office by the same kind of scam.

    The comments below morphed into a diatribe against US income tax where they seem to think they can legally get away with not paying income tax.

    My guess is some of those people were writing this from jail🙂

    Can you actually go to jail for not paying your tax? I thought that was outlawed (at least in Britain...I think anyway).

    That's how they got Al Capone, taxes.
