One of the world’s greatest chess geniuses, Bobby Fischer, has died at the age of 64. A spokesman for Fischer said the former world chess champion passed away in a Reykjavik hospital yesterday. The US-born former world chess champion, who became famous around the world for beating the Soviet Union’s Boris Spassky in 1972, had been seriously ill for some time. Rest in Peace, Bobby.
Bobby Fischer has always been one of my favorite players. Why he has been so different, let’s leave it up to him. After all, he’s just being Bobby.
Chess fans have always been anticipating the return of Fischer on the chess board. One can only be fascinated by the thought that maybe someday Fischer will meet Garry Kasparov and play a series of chess games. Now, then, they are all fantasies, and will keep that way.
Bobby Fischer died at the age of 64, the same number of squares there are in a chess board.
