Checkmate, Game Over
Reclusive chess master Bobby Fischer has died at the age of 64.
Guess he didn't care much for the USA:
Fischer fell foul of U.S. authorities by playing a match against Spassky in Yugoslavia in 1992, at a time when the country was the target of sanctions during Belgrade's war with breakaway republics.
He vanished after the match, for which he won $3 million, and resurfaced only after the September 11, 2001, attacks in the United States. In an interview with a Philippine radio station, Fischer praised the strikes and said he wanted to see America "wiped out."
