Check and Mate

RIP Bobby Fischer. I'm not a chess player, but I used to watch my dad and brother play chess. I think mostly I annoyed them because ever time one of them lost a piece, I'd ask 'who's winning' and my dad, sometimes more patiently than other times, would tell me it wasn't clear yet who was winning. Then I'd watch and ask some more. My dad made a few attempts to teach me the game but I have the attention of a gnat when it comes to games so he wasn't successful. I think he wished Bobby was his kid instead of me.
