  Phony Benoni: In case you weren't aware, Gashimov passed away last Friday at the age of 27.

  piltdown man: A great player, taken from us too soon. Condolences to his family.
Jan-12-14  Nezhmetdinov: Always liked Gashimov's style; sad news.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: That is a shame. He was a fine player.
Jan-12-14  gars: What a pity! Mikhail Steinberg, Lembit Oll, Vugar Gashimov, who else?
Jan-12-14  RedShield: See: User: Ziggurat

But hasn't been updated in the last year.

  perfidious: A young player missing from <ziggurat>'s summation, while not in the class of those named above, was Timothy Pellant.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <perfidious> Thanks. Unfortunately <ziggurat> has been almost inactive for the last two years, and his 'early passer list' has not been updated ever since.

There's also Vesna Rozic to remember.

Jan-12-14  RedShield: Also missing are Igor Kurnosov and Pyotr Izmailov.

  Domdaniel: Gashimov is a sad loss: he will be missed.
Another possible addition to the Ziggurat list is E.N. Mulcahy, one of the strongest Irish players in the 1950s and 1960s. He was aged 38 when he died in a plane crash in 1968. An annual tournament in his memory is held in Cork.
Jan-12-14  Jason Frost: Probably wouldn't be to difficult to crawl player pages, and parse ages. Though even with omissions, tragic how long the list is.
Jan-12-14  pericles of athens: "Over the Top" is an awesome '80s movie featuring Sylvester Stallone as an arm wrestler who enters an arm-wrestling tournament to win a truck.

  kevin86: White can take the rook and be ahead two rooks for a queen...then the pawn will queen!
