Fritz and the Comeback by Gabirel Adams

As part of an initiative for Rickshaw Girl movie, I got introduced to Producer Eric J Adams. Recently in an email conversation knowing my passion for chess, he mentioned that his son Gabriel Adams produced a short film on a homeless chess master on his comeback to chess after 20 years. Gabriel actually arranged this man to play in this competitive tournament chess at Concord Open 2013 (if I remember correctly, I and my son Ahyan also played that same tournament) and made this film based on his comeback. While watching this you will get some food for thought on how a chess master thinks, be he/she a millionaire or a homeless, about life! I could feel his soul myself, his spoken and unspoken words. Thank you Gabriel for everything you did for Fritz, and thus indirectly, to all passionate chess lovers.

I checked with the Director of Mechanics Chess Institute IM John Donaldson about Fritz. He is one of the most knowledgable chess historians of our time. He sent me 2 links where it was widely covered during that 2013 tournament time.
