Bobby Fischer Dies Jan 18, 2008 Despite many rumors of his untimely end in years past, this time his death seems to be real.

Respects despite all the things he may have done wrong he was one of the greatest, arguably the greatest, chess player ever.

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.

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...

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.

RIP RIP 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!

Genius is gone Most 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.

... On the description where you click the link to the "Chess Related discussions" area:

"Chess tactics, openings, game analysis, famous players, etc."

I believe that this thread falls under the "famous players" part.
