Why do they continue the myth that Fischer was 'driven mad by chess'?
Chess, as a vehicle for his obsessive tendencies, was what kept him sane - it was only after he gave it up that he went over the edge.

Carlsen is so bored and slipping in ratings that his reign is unlikely to be long as that of Karpov or Kasparov
