    Fischer died Thursday in a Reykjavik hospital, his spokesman, Gardar Sverrisson, said. There was no immediate word on the cause of death.

    Born in Chicago and raised in Brooklyn, Robert James Fischer was a U.S. chess champion at 14 and a grand master at 15. He beat Spassky in a series of games in Reykjavik to claim America's first world chess championship in more than a century.

    The event had tremendous symbolic importance, pitting the intensely individualistic young American against a product of the grim and soulless Soviet Union.

    R.I.P. Bobby.

    A very good movie if anyone enjoys the game to watch is "Searching for Bobby Fisher".


    Its about a young chess player named Jos Waitzkin.

    Brad Johnson could be the cornerstone for any offense.
