Chess champ Bobby Fischer died at age 64 yesterday, Jan. 17, 2007. He was a nut in his later years, but he’s considered one of the best chess players ever. His greatest legacy is probably his influence on chess for young players, inspiring generations to learn chess at an early age, like me.
I read a review of Bobby Fischer Goes to War : How the Soviets Lost the Most Extraordinary Chess Match of All Time in USA Today. I’ll probably get it. I used to play a lot of chess, leading my Junior High School team over 20 years ago (20 years. Shite). I only play computers now.
