US Chess Grandmaster Bobby Fischer has died at age 65 of unknown causes. He had some very controversial views on things, and a very amazing life. Interesting article, this guy was way Above Top Secret.

He was a great chess player. Too bad politics got thrown in the mix.


On January 17, 2008, Fischer died at the age of 64 (coincidentally, the number of squares on a chessboard)

A sad day for the chess community. Agreat one has passed. I did not realize that Bobby Fischer was so Anit-American and Anti-Jewish. Funny how they never elluded to that in "Searching for Bobby Fischer". I wonder if he thought that he would die at 64. Pretty amazing coincidence.
