    ...of all still living and active chess players and experts ("experts in meaning with ELO under 2000) and other people who ever had at least mentioning worth contact with Bobby
    I am not that rich (quite on the contrary right now) to stalk them systematically, but in any case I can make a kind of an algorithm so as to arrange "incidental" meeting with them on an open, congress, or perhaps by staying in same hotel.
    The purpose: stealing some energy that Bobby might had left on them, finding an item that belonged to him or he had touched more than once...
    It is an algorithm of searching Bobby's shadows, searching for "Pale Fire", a sad archæological trip like Erich von Däniken took in seventies looking for proofs that aliens visited us.

    Hi vandervelde,

    He left us his games. Play over his games and get his energy and ideas from those.

    I watched a video of Garry Kasparov, visiting Bobby's grave in Iceland.

    I think Karpov meet Bobby in Philipines

    Bobby's wife maybe is still alive as well the sister.... not sure

    He got his teeth taken away... maybe 1 thooth is still on the wild

    What about to visiting the pasadena and japan jails were he was confined????

    Now he played at both New York chess clubs, in youtube Garry as well went to the table Bobby played via telegraph the cuba match, the board and chessmen still are there

    YouTube

    YouTube

    Bobby Fischer was a chess player of the first rank and nothing can take that away from his legacy. He was a more than usually flawed human being though and digging up the peculiarities of his private life will only confirm hat. Let sleeping dogs lie.

    Regarding those teeth.
    Firstly, I don't buy that theory he lost all of them or got them pulled away or got fillings away due fear from heairng FM radio stations from Radio Moscow.

    I believe this idea came from bogus and sensasionalistic "biographies" as for eample Brad Darrach's BF against the world". I purchased both that "biography" and Frank Brady's "Endgame..." from 2009. Darrach is just pushing his one writer-ego through the book and is deliberately ruining Fischer's credibility trying to picture him as a loonie.

    If I run across some of "Fischer's teeth", I might be fooled like lord Percy Percy in this episode of Blackadder--->>>
    YouTube

    As for chess table and pieces from Mashall Chess Club where Fischer was sitting during La Habana 1965 tournament, I would never be so rich to buy it out, Maybe I try to steal one piece or two, and replace them with phony pieces as in "Thomas Crown Affair"...

    I was thinking about the Marshall club chessmen, as well, so many people could have same idea of substitution.

    Maybe the original chessmen has been kidnapped many years ago, and the chessmen of the Garry video are just regular wood pieces without Bobby's spirit.

    But for sure the table.... the board, has to be the real one, for sure some of Bobby essence and spirit is still in that board.

    I know from Internet a person that maybe knows some inusual details about Bobby life, she...

    She wrote some blogs for chess.com as a chess historian https://www.chess.com/member/batgirl

    it said :
    ' Sarah Beth, aka "batgirl," unlike most of the Article authors on Chess.com, has neither talents nor credentials. What she does have is a two-decade long passion for time-consuming, tedious, historical research and a penchant for transposing her findings into words and stories. Her belief is that the value of Chess extends far beyond the champions, beyond the great games played or the theories advanced. The value of Chess lies in how it affects each individual who embraces it. And that's where all stories begin.'

    Sometimes she posted old newspaper articles about Bobby with names, places, details....

    Could be a good place to start, for your list:

    Lisa Lane, is still alive, https://www.chess.com/forum/view/general/lisa-lane-1972

    and Susan Polgar.... she played thousand of chess960 games with Bobby, is maybe an abordable person, at least by twitter.

    For sure I belive you are going to be succesful in your idea

    Again my imperfect English: yep, you mentioned chessmen, and I understood that as "people in the board of Marshall CC", and of course chessmen are pieces..

    This reminds me of an Irish genius tune writer and harpist, Turlough O'Carolan. He was sometimes called the Irish Mozart and after he died, his brain went missing. It seems in Irish mythology, eating the brain of a genius will give you some of his powers.
    Nobody knows who took the brain after he died but I think they located one small piece of it.

    Pretty creepy.

    I pay homage to him by playing some of his tunes, like O'Carolan's concerto or Planxty Morgan Magan and the like.

    O God, how did we arrive at braineating, it sounds like a B-horror trash movie with John Astin as a star, for example like "Night Life" or "Killer Tomatoes" franchize.

    I was thinking more in the line of Gandhi's stinking sandals, or Freud's cigar holder or, hm, holy graal... To chat with Bobby's lawyer or an old GM who made draw with him in 1968...

    Or, again as a screen play, I could... no, I will save this and send it to a Hollywood studio!

    Well, what about to eat some object that BF had touched??? This is just Mystic.... Chess Mystic. The power of BF is still around us
