Chess Champ Bobby Fischer Dead

I like chess, but not a huge fan, either way R.I.P.

Hope there's a hell.

Thumbs up

Instead, he championed his concept of random chess, in which pieces are shuffled at the beginning of each match in a bid to reinvigorate the game.
I'll do that to my board... and a few days later, come back and play 1 move on each side. Then 1 move every day, per side, just once a day.

Every time it looks like a new board, a new game, and that shit gets your mind thinking. It helps relieve stress, and it really gets those mental gears turning.

I had always thought Bobby Fisher was an asshole. Im pretty disgusted by the idea brought up that he was as great a genius as Einstien. Einstien wasnt a pussy.
