Bobby Fischer dies in Iceland

Quite a surprise, as usual... even if he was seriously ill for a long time. Goodbye Bobby and thanks for the games.

Bobby Fischer in the news

Quite impressive to hear so much about Fischer's death in the medias taking his past into consideration... Fischer was a living legend whatever his thoughts & life after the century match in Reykjavik 1972 against Boris Spassky (actually the whole world already).

FICGS statistics from search engines and particularly Google exploded these last days.. "Robert James Fischer", "Fischer Spasski", "Fischer champion du monde", "La partita del secolo", "Fischer random chess", "Fischer Palma de Majorque" ... and so on... sometimes stranger (even quite frightening) keywords associated to him.

Anyway, Bobby continues to promote the chess game all over the world !

Bobby Fischer died

One reporter said Bobby Fischer was 64 the same as the number of squares on the chessboard. Well Robert J Fischer was a lot of things but he was never 'square'. Thanks for the chess, Bobby

In Fischer's honour

Hello everybody ! What about a special Fischer tournament ? Or thematic tournaments, on line he used to play, for example : spanish exchange, or sozin against sicilian... And yes, thanks for your wonderful play, Bobby.

Sounds good

We can just sign up for a Fischer Random tournament in the special tournaments category and just play.

I'm considering my game load right now.

Ok, I'm in

Looking for players in:

Fischer's defense

The next thematic tournament could be Fischer's defense in the King's gambit...

Robert J Fischer

My brother said that Bobby Fischer was the 'Jimi Hendrix' of Chess. Simple as that. IMO

Interesting comparison, when looking further... :)
