    Wow. When I played competitive chess as a teen, I idolized that guy.

    Obviously not all was right with him... he went from being eccentric to being downright loopy, the anti Semitism being the worst of it.

    It's often been said there is a fine line between genius and insanity. Maybe Bobby spent a majority of his life dancing on it. I too was inspired by him when I started to learn to play chess.
