This segment covers Rossolimo's chess career in America, during which he ran a famous chess studio in Greenwich Village, New York, for 17 years. During this time, Rossolimo became a trusted friend to all American chess players, including luminaries such as Bobby Fischer and Marcel Duchamp. The segment concludes with an account of the bizarre mystery surrounding his sudden death in 1975.
CORRECTION; Arturo Pomar was a Spanish, not Peruvian, chessmaster.
