Bobby Fischer Dead at 64

I love chess. Some would say I even adore it, and some people have asked me what I thought of Bobby Fischer. To be honest, I don't have an answer for them. Bobby Fischer is, was a fantastic chess player, but he had some problems. Whether or not his anti-Semitism was an act or real is not for me to decide, especially now. Nor do I want to go to that dark place his renouncement of his American citizenship brings me. So, I will just say, Bobby Fischer has died. He was, perhaps, the greatest chess mind in the world and it is sad he never wanted to share his knowledge with anyone.
