Obituary – IM Ilhan Onat (1929 – 2013)

Turkish Chess Federation lost the first IM of the country IM Ilhan Onat at age 84.

Onat won the title of international master together with IM Nevzat Suer in 1975 as the first Turkish IMs. Onat represented Turkey numerous times in Chess Olympiads, and won the Turkish Championship in 1974, 1975 and 1982.

Ilhan Onat donated a primary school with his name in Izmir (İlhan Onat İlköğretim Okulu) and was supporting education and chess.

FIDE expresses its deepest condolences to Turkish Chess Federation and members of Mr. Onat’s family.
