Bobby, arguably the best chess player ever has passed because of kidney failure at 64 (64 squares on the chessboard...)

I'm only 19 and wasn't here during Bobby's time, but as a pro chess player, he's my hero.

We could talk about the bad things about Bobby (which there were a lot) but instead, I wanna hear about Bobby back when he was an American icon during the Cold War. Anyone here remember that?
