Farewell to the Fischerman

Posted by Student/Teacher |


















1943-2008


I'm not sure if you knew, but Bobby Fischer died last year. As a chess player and scholar, I find a sadness in that that's a bit hard to describe. I'm not sure how I feel about the man. I never knew him. I'm pretty sure though that he was a genius chess player. Dude ranked as a grand master at 15 years old. That's ludicrous. Speaking of though, word is he lived the latter end of his life in bitter solitude. Whether that is true or not, I don't know. I wasn't with him. I can recall learning about him and the gift he gave to the game, more witnesses. If you've never played chess, I encourage you to try.

Post.Script.
I hope Bobby died happily
