    The QVB chess tourney was a terrific concept and location. I always longed for a repeat. He was certainly a wise person in many facets. He did his lot to improve the world by encouraging and developing chess that is now acknowledged as improving the human's thinking and boy we certainly need that.

    I'm sorry to hear that sad news. He was well-known as a supporter of Australian chess and incidentally as a keen runner of successful race horses here.

    ...I don't want to go among mad people Alice remarked, "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: we're all mad here. I am mad. You're mad." "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice. "You must be," said the Cat ,"or you wouldn't have come here."

    A more successful horse runner than self-proclaimed loser Gerry Harvey. Can't help comparing Dato Tan to Trump, no cowardly hiding behind massive, numerous bankruptcies etc., not all for himself.
