It is with deep sadness that I let our community know that Guy Haworth has passed away. To readers of the ICGA Journal, you will recognize his name as being a prolific contributor especially on the subjects of chess tablebases and the TCEC chess competitions. He was a low-key but passionate supporter of the ICGA’s mission. It was a privilege for me to have worked with him.
Our heartfelt sympathies go out to his wife Annette and sons Alex and Ben.
