Bobby Fischer Dead

I was very sad to hear the news that Bobby Fischer has passed. As long time readers know I thought that Fischer was one of the greatest minds to ever play chess. I didn't agree with Fischer's view of the world...but God on the board this guy could create...a virtuoso of his craft.

If anyone has played chess seriously they have read something or heard legendary stories about Fischer. But his great battle of 21 games against Spassky has to be the greatest international wins for the United States. I put it right up there with the US Hockey team beating the Russians.

He was the youngest to ever reach the Grand Master title at 15. In the chess world that is like a 15 year old being the head of Microsoft or Apple.

In any case, I wish the man the best and hopefully he will find peace in the after life that he was never able to find here on earth.

Robert James "Bobby" Fischer (March 9, 1943 - January 17, 2008)

i think youngest GM of all time is Sergey Karjakin at 12 years and change.

Fischer was brilliant, but an Anti-Semite, which makes him hero to few...
