My favorite is Fischer's only known game of postal chess. Of course,
my being the person who rediscovered it raised it in my esteem.

How to remember RJF?

http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chesscollection?cid=1011009 is a good
place to start.

Kasparov on Fischer in MGP 4 is a fine read, as is Russians vs.
Fischer. Elie Agur's book is wonderful.

The great book on RJF's games remains to be written....

My favorite game: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chesscollection?cid=1011009

Fischer's game 13 vs. Spassky is an awesome battle. Who cannot admire
Fischer's audacity in playing the unexpected Alekhine's Defense in a world
championship match?

Spassky misplayed the opening and then responded with a kingside attack,
which Fischer defended accurately. This finally leads to a fantastically complex
endgame which Fischer wins on the 75th move.

How long until the Bobbydolators start floating conspiracy theories
about 'The Master's' death? Where is Goran Tomic when we need him?
