Dudley Moore passed away in 2002 from a rare disease called PSP which attacks the brain cells and is possibly responsible for Moore’s later in life interviews in which he seemed to be “drunk”. Most attributed this to his comedic style and yet it possibly delayed his diagnosis.

Bobby Fischer was America’s first World Chess Champion. A prodigy and an American champion since the age of 13, Fischer’s Championship years were highlighted by the largest gaps in scoring ever. Essentially there were no other players even within his league. Sadly Fischer declined his status and virtually disappeared as he continued a growing hatred of both his Country – America and his own Jewish ethicity. It seemed his brilliance in Game Theory was so great that it left some gaping voids within his basic social abilities.
