adv.— «I can’t say I’ll miss Bobby Fischer. Chessically speaking, he died years ago. But I’ll continue to miss the player and artist that he was, his courageous honesty and sublime creativity. He wasn’t just a great player. He went beyond that. “Chess,” Fischer said, “is life.” Maybe so, maybe not. But this I know: Bobby Fischer was chess.» —“In Praise of Bobby Fischer” by Leonard Cassuto Chronicle of Higher Education Feb. 1, 2008. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
