But he is genetically a Jew.
He doesn’t seem to explain why his genes seem unaffected.
On the other hand, I’m not entirely in agreement that Judaism is genetic.... seems much more cultural to me.

I reckon Bobby is a potato short of a hamin (cholent).
"But he [Bobby Fischer] is genetically a Jew."
Anyone, regardless of genetic ancestry, can become a Jew by converting to Judaism.
Then why should not anyone, regardless of Jewish ancestry, become a non-Jew by
converting to another religion?
Bobby Fischer joined (and later left) the Worldwide Church of God, founded by Herbert Armstrong,
which was a fringe Christian church. Having discussed this issue with Jews, I would submit
that anyone of Jewish ancestry who voluntarily joins a Christian church is no longer a Jew.
Now it's true that the Nazis refused to acknowledge that Jews who had converted to Christianity
(such as Edith Stein) were real Christians and still persecuted them for being Jewish.
But I don't believe that we should blindly follow the Nazi definitions of Jewishness.
