Voters Speak!

The question this week was if joining a chess club was beneficial. The breakdown of the votes went as follows:

No. (0%)
Yes. (80%)
Depends on Club (20%)

Not a big surprise there at all - but personally I think a couple things are important. First, the atmosphere. Is it a friendly club or a "kill or be killed" club? It's an important question. My personal opinion is that if you can't learn at a club, then it's not really a club but a meeting place for competition. Now that's not a bad thing, but learning needs to be a big emphasis if a person wants to improve their game.

This week's poll focuses on one of the chess world's largest icons, Bobby Fischer. If Bobby Fischer, due to his health problems, were to pass on, what would he be remembered by most in future generations?

Looking forward to the results.

He will be remembered for his tirades, of course, but that is secondary to his amazing chess ability... Rich
