20 ( +1 | -1 ) I agree that he was one of the greatest chess players to ever live; but honestly, I did not admire the man. I used to admire him, because of his remarkable chess; but after some of his crazy statements, I changed my opinion.
32 ( +1 | -1 ) Not complaining ... Just FYI ...there is also a longer thread about this in the CHESS Forum. This just helps spread the word, imo. But just in case you wish to see that also... gameknot.com
23 ( +1 | -1 ) my condolensces... Chess has lost One of the greatest Chess player of all time.Chess's community will keep his memory and all the legacy of his chess games will stay with us Forever. Life and Chess will and must continue ! W.
27 ( +1 | -1 ) I agree...100% with what lighttotheright said above. No one can deny his genius as a chess player extraordinaire. And I suppose I shouldn't dislike a mentally ill person, but I had no respect for Fisher as a human being. It's not the first time that a genius goes off the deep end, that's for sure.
26 ( +1 | -1 ) RIPRIP my chess role model Bobby Fischer--if it wasn't for the movie "In Search of Bobby Fischer", I would never have gotten into this wonderful sport like I have. I owe my interest and desire to play chess to you. You are the best!
44 ( +1 | -1 ) Genius is goneMost players agree that Fischer was one of the all-time greatest chessplayer on earth. In my mind he was clearly one of the 3 most brilliant: Morphy,Fischer,Kasparov. Its a pity that he did not live longer here in Iceland because he was happy here and we Iceland peoble are proud of been saving him from the jail in Japan. He has now been buried in small village outside Reykjavík. His legasy in chess will live forever.

"Chess tactics, openings, game analysis, famous players, etc."
I believe that this thread falls under the "famous players" part.
