On The Death Of Bobby Fischer

Quite a lot written on the passing of Bobby Fischer. I am a chess fan, I enjoy the game, play a bit online here. You can see my games in progress here and my rating here. I also have these links on my sidebar. Bobby Fischer was an immensely complex individual, quite eccentric, and haunted by demons some say. This article is among the better that I read.

I would love to know more about his background and what caused his intense anti-semitism. I can see a new unauthorized biography in the works now.

There is some speculation he had Asperger's Syndrome" a mild type/ form of autism. He seemed to have some of the "quirks" and symptoms associated with it.
