Sep-24-09  stanleys: GM Safin died 4 days ago :(


Sep-24-09  DCP23: GM Shukhrat Safin died on 20 September 2009 of blood cancer.

Sep-24-09  MaxxLange: My sympathies to his family, friends, and chess friends.

Blood Cancer! What a bizzare death. I did not know that cancer of the blood was possible.

Sep-24-09  Jason Frost: RIP

A very strong player in his prime, who played some wonderful games which will live on, but he will be sorely missed.

Sep-25-09  siggemannen: Well, isn't that just another word for leukemia?

Anyways, RIP Shukhrat.

<siggemannen: Well, isn't that just another word for leukemia?>

That's correct:

<Leukemia (British English: leukaemia) (Greek leukos, "white"; aima, "blood") is a cancer of the blood or bone marrow>

Sep-25-09  Eastfrisian: As I know, his birthday was on April 3, 1970.
