Back to overview

With sadness we inform you, that at age 64, DGT co-founder Albert Vasse has died.

Albert started DGT in 1993 and was its CEO until his retirement in 2015. As a FIDE arbiter, organizer, chess trainer, promotor, player, and entrepreneur, he devoted his life to chess. He took play seriously. For the DGT family, Albert’s vision, his drive, and optimism remain an inspiration.

Our thoughts are with his wife Nora, his family, and friends.
