Default Why Fisher Quit

Fisher wasn't obstinate he didn't want to play any more competitive
chess. He didn't want to play because he was afraid that he couldn't
live up to his own standard. Fisher had plenty of offers to play after
he resigned the title and he refused most of them, which shows that he
wasn't interested in playing any more. Fisher wouldn't accept any offer
that was remote fair because he didn't want to play. The Russians
didn't want to play Fisher so they wouldn't accept any offer that
Fisher would agree to. Neither side wanted to admit that they were
afraid so both negotiated in bad faith so when there was no agreement
they could each blame the other.
