Welcome back Thomas Luther!

Popular (and strong) Grandmaster Thomas Luther, a three time German Champion, has now confirmed that he will be returning for this year’s DYTM Raja Nazrin Shah International Open Championship 2012.

Local chess enthusiasts will remember him from the 3rd KL Open Championship in 2010 and I remember many pleasant evenings in his company at the Khanty Mansiysk Olympiad where he opted to play for the International Physical Disabled Chess Association (IPCA).

Since then Thomas has been a very active advocate including developing training seminars and his work has been recognised by being made the Advisor of the FIDE Chess for the Disabled Commission.
