Homage to Bobby

A troubled genius.

Yesterday I visited the grave of Bobby Fischer at Laugardælir Church, around 30 miles outside of Reykjavík, Iceland. I was a boy in shorts when the 1972 Bobby Fischer-Boris Spassky duel for the World Chess Championship captured the world’s imagination.

    Interesting duels of our times. It was kind of cold war thing. There were also great boxing duels – Ali and the rest. Now a days all fake fights for the sake of money.
