Tragic news: Chelyabinsk GM Igor Kurnosov (who was 28 just years old) was killed by a car while crossing the street. The 20-year old woman who was driving the car has received her driving license 1 year 2 months ago. Another victim of her in the accident was a 42-year man, who has suffered severe injuries and is now being treated at the hospital.

Igor Kurnosov was a strong Russian grandmaster, winner of many international tournaments (Arctic Chess Challenge, Hastings Masters, Biel Open, Politiken Cup, Abu Dhabi Chess Festival, Nakhchivan Open, etc.), and was rated as high as FIDE 2680 at some point of his chess career. More importantly, he was an honest, kind, positive person; a great friend; and a chess professional who had a true passion for the game.

Igor, we will be missing you a lot! Rest in peace!
