Looking for information on Peter Rookwood

I'm looking for any information on a Peter Rookwood, whom I have been told is in the footnotes of history by beating King Henry VIII at a game of chess and winning an estate in England because of it. Could be a myth. Has anybody ever heard of such a story?
