Bobby Fischer's Alleged Daughter -- Checkmate

7/6/2010 5:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Forget DNA -- The U.S. Chess Federation has an even better way to determine if Bobby Fischer is the daddy of a 9-year-old Filipino girl -- see how good she is in the checkmate department.

Jim Berry, president of the U.S. Chess Federation, tells TMZ chess is a skill that can be inherited -- and the chess community is abuzz with talk about the little girl's possible telltale talent.

Berry adds, "I would like to see her tested to see if she possesses the same abilities that Bobby did at a young age."

Berry says even though the girl was born in the Philippines, she can still end up playing for the U.S. team ... but she'll have to make a serious move (as in location) to make that happen.

Since this girl is a daughter of an American, she can be considered to play for the US team. However she can't play for the US team while she is living in the Philippines. She would have to be a US citizen first.
It even stated that she has to move from location.

Why don't you read between the lines dip****. There's nothing racist in this article, so grow up and don't be such a sensitive homo.

Did someone go Jaywalking? This suggestion is so wrong in so many ways. Chess ability rather than a DNA match? Please! I might pause for a second if someone said IQ, but even that would not be a good way to suggest inheritance.

Speaking of DNA testing, did you guys know there's undeniable DNA evidence submitted in court to suggest Elvis Presley is still alive?

Plus it seems Elvis was an inspiration for Michael to hoax his death as well... ;) the similarities are shocking.

not kidding, read about it for yourself at http://ElvisandMJ.com before you try to call me crazy.

If she was born in the Philippines she should play for us if she has any talent.
