This One's For You, Mr. Fischer

Chess legend Bobby Fischer passed away on Friday. In honor of his life and achievements, a co-worker and I played a game of chess after work.

I played a good game, however I made two huge blunders, seen at 13 and 36. I had setup our queens into a delicious Mexican standoff, yet I responded to a move that disrupted the standoff and didn't realize my queen was vulnerable. After that I achieved a huge comeback but made a horrible move that resulted in a checkmate at 36. This puts my record with Chanh at 1-1-1.
