We are all aware of Bobby's issues, but I still could help feel sad and a sense of loss at Bobby passing away.

Sad day.... I can't believe it :(
After his son's birth they've asked him:
"Is it a boy or girl?"
YES! He replied.....

My interest for chess begun when Fischer played against Spassky
in 1972. Me and my friends buyed newspaper, and when
Fisher won a game we celebrate like a goal of Brasil in a
World Cup of football. A genius, a pity that the ilness stop
his chess early.
