Dear Mr. President,
European Chess Union is deeply grieved to hear of the sudden death of Mr. Dato Tan Chin Nam, the Honorary Life President of the Malaysian Chess Federation, a legendary chess figure, chess patron and donor and a successful organizer of multiple chess events.
He was a valuable asset to the world of chess and we mourn this terrible loss.
Please accept our deepest condolences to the Malaysian Chess Community and to Mr. Dato Tan’s family.
