Searching for Bobby Fischer

REYKJAVIK, Iceland — Bobby Fischer, the reclusive chess genius who became a Cold War hero by dethroning the Soviet world champion in 1972 and later renounced his American citizenship, has died. He was 64.

Fischer had a profound affect on the game of chess. I became very involved in chess as a result of his rise and was a school champion at one point. For that, I have fond memories.

Beyond that, though . . . he hasn't been missed nor likely will be.

RIP
