Bobby Fischer

"The thing that strikes me about Fischer's chess, is that it's very clear. There are no mysterious rook moves or obscure manoeuvrings. He's very direct. There's a great deal of logic to the chess. It's not as though it's not incredibly difficult – it is incredibly difficult. It's just that when you look at it you can understand it – afterwards. He just makes chess look very easy, which it isn't." Making the supremely difficult look easy may be one definition of genius.
