Bobby Fischer, world-class chess player has died at the age of 64.  You can read an obituary here.

One of my favorite films, Searching for Bobby Fischer, references his life and follows a young boy trying to balance an impressive skill for the strategic game with family and school responsibilities.

The movie, made in 1993, was based on the life story of Josh Waitzkin.
