Rather tragic news. Hastings winner a couple of years ago.

It's always very sad to hear when someone's life is cut so tragically short.

This is sad news indeed.

Thank you for the alert, Richard. I'm informing the Hastings Congress Committee.

"an honest, kind, positive person".

Is this a not too subtle dig at a certain super-GM, I wonder??

Natalia expressed things very nicely. I've played Igor a couple of times, including at the Arctic Challenge where we both took part in all the additional activities of fishing, barbecues and mountaineering. A tremendous player and just a nice guy - very sad indeed.
