    Default Bobby Fischer dies at 64...

    World Chess Champion Bobby Fischer has died in Iceland at 64 of kidney failure.

    Full story here.

    I also think he was an INTJ.

    Yeah, I agree he was INTJ. He truly was a brilliant genius, although troubled with mental illness, but I mostly thought of that as entertaining, but I guess you have to a nihilist to do so. But no worries guys, the search for the new Bobby Fischer has ended, it is Magnus Carlsen!

    I am saddened by his death. He was a great master indeed. Magnus Carlsen is very talented but no Bobby Fischer (Norwegian pride, Splittet?) - no one can be in this age of computer-based chess preparation.

    Life goes on, so does time.
    Not really.

    Yeah, I am Norwegian, but damn Magnus Carlsen is a Bobby Fischer in the making! He is 17 years old, and his unofficial rating is now 2747! He is the youngest 2700 player in the game, and he started playing chess as late as 8,5 years old! He is currently leading the Corus A, with an average Elo of 2742, with a performance rating of 2920! Also remember that the level in the game is higher than ever, and that there are more players than ever at a very high level. I am a huge fan of his, and watch his games live ...

    Yeah, I am well aware of his exploits - after all, I'm also a fan!

    Were you a fan of his, Uberfuher?

    I've heard of him before. He's the first name that comes to mind when I think of chess. I wonder if there will ever be anyone as good at that game as he was, ever again?

    I never really play chess that often (in fact I think I've only ever played it 5 times in my whole life), but I often use it as a metaphor for strategic thinking.
