RIP Bobby Fischer

Chess champion Bobby Fischer passed away today of kidney failure. That’s unfortunate. Bobby Fischer the last great American chess champion who had been in exile for years based on some political issues, was an American chess champion at 14, a grand master at 15, and he defeated the Soviet world champion at age 28. To test himself and his chess playing ability, Bobby would set up exhibitions and play upwards of 15 chess games simultaneously. He defeated computers. The man was a genius and I got hip to him after watching the movie Searching For Bobby Fischer. Great movie, great cast, and Bobby was a great man. Read up on him, learn about a very interesting cat; he had some demons and at times got a little off the hook, but there is no denying his genius.
