Bobby Fischer (9 March 1943 - 17 Jan 2008)
Just 2 hours ago, BCM heard the desperately poor tidings that one-time basis chess champion Bobby Fischer died yesterday, amongst initial reports indicating that it was equally a upshot of kidney failure. BCM carried the tidings of his chronic kidney status inwards the Jan number as well as hence this was non merely unexpected news.
It's unprecedented for us to present y'all a forepart encompass earlier it has been formally finalised but hither is a mock-up of the Feb British Chess Magazine forepart encompass which is probable to become to the printers afterwards today. It shows the 19-year-old Fischer playing Rivera at the Varna Olympiad inwards 1962. We prefer to present Fischer equally he was inwards his prime number (actually a trivial earlier his prime) rather than the agency he appeared inwards the afterwards stages of his life after he had long since abandoned chess. And that is too how nosotros prefer to recall him. R.I.P. Sumber http://johnchess.blogspot.com/
