"Chess is not like life, Chess is life." Bobby Fischer 1943-2008. I have always admired eccentrics. They don't compromise or adapt they're discordant rather then harmonic, they forge upstream and piss in the wind. They exist alone in a parallel world of their own construction that sustains them. Bobby Fischer was such a man, brilliant,crazy, alone but never lonely. I don't think he found much that pleased him in our world but he found solace and glory in the 64 squares and 32 piece black and white universe of the chess board. The infinite within the finite. Say what you will but he was nobodies pawn.
