Submission + - Chess Champion Bobby Fischer Dies (cnn.com)

_14k4 writes: "From CNN: Bobby Fischer, the reclusive chess master who became a Cold War icon when he dethroned the Soviet Union's Boris Spassky as world champion in 1972, has died aged 64. Bobby Fischer became an increasingly anti-establishment figure after ending his chess career. Spokesman Gardar Sverrisson said Fischer passed away in a Reykjavik hospital on Thursday. There was no immediate word on cause of death. (wikipedia mentions kidney failure)"
