Donato Mallari RIP

Donato Mallari, a well known and popular Sydney chess player has passed away. Mallari was a very active player on the weekend circuit, and his death at a relatively young age (early 50's) has come as a real shock to the chess community.
As a player he had an attacking style of player, which made his games very interesting to watch. He was capable of upsetting almost anyone he faced, including GM Zong-Yuan Zhao in the 2013 Australia Day Weekender. Always a happy and courteous opponent, he will be missed by all.
