ChessFlash World News/Oct 22, 2018

This just in from Edwin Lam/Hamburg , Germany:  We regret to note the death of Malaysian mega chess financier Dato Tan Chin Nam at age 92. Mr. Dato Tan anticipated the world champion Chinese Olympiad gold medal chess teams long before 2018 olympiad glory … a mega chess sponsor /building developer across Asia for half a century Mr. Tan made chess happen in a desert … colorful detours were Mr. Tan naming many of his race horses after chess grandmasters/chess play itself … bet on ‘Capablanca’ or even “ the Catalan Opening.”
