Federations cannot be excluded from elections due to debts

FIDE - Wed, 07/18/2018 - 16:37



Federations cannot be excluded from elections due to debts


FIDE has received a letter from the President of Russian Chess Federation and FIDE Vice President, Andrey Filatov, who steps into the false assumption that each federation debt "must be covered before July 23 - or the respective federation won't be allowed to participate in FIDE Olympiad and FIDE President elections in Batumi".

FIDE Treasurer, Prof. Dr. Adrian Siegel explains in his answer that no federation can be excluded from the General Assembly and the election due to debts towards FIDE. Moreover he states addressed to RCF that "such an intention is against our Statutes and Regulations and I would personally fight against such a request".

Ding Liren will play against Topalov in Wenzhou

Chessdom - Wed, 07/18/2018 - 12:14

Since the accidental fall in Norway on May 31, the Chinese number one and the World Cup runner-up Ding Liren temporarily stopped the international chess with the rating of 2800 points. The doctor recommended a recovery time between 3 to 6 months, for which he had to give up a series of competitions such as the Ningbo TV Fast Game, the Czech Navarre Match and the National National League.

Recently, Ding Liren, who is recovering his body in Wenzhou’s home, revealed his current situation through an online interview.

“Be patient, hold on for a while.” Ding Liren’s sentence is like saying to himself, but behind the words is full of resentment. “I didn’t realize it when I was in the next game, but after a period of rest, I am more eager to participate in the competition.”

For players like Ding Liren who love to play chess and are in the critical upswing of their careers, it is a bit tormented to be unable to participate in the competition for several months. In order not to let him fall into the root of the disease, Ding Liren’s family and the coach of the Zhejiang team hope that he can rest for a while. After all, the bones hurt for a hundred days, and the bone injury needs a long recovery period. However, he himself is already “free”.

Ding Liren revealed that he is going to return for the match against Topalov in his hometown of Wenzhou from August 10th to 14th, and he also has confirmed that he will represent the national team to participate in the chess Olympics held in Batumi, Georgia in September.

Ding Liren maintained a record of 78 consecutive undefeated games in the game before the injury. The last time in the slow game, the game went back to August last year. With such an impressive record, Ding Liren’s grade points rose to 2797 points, approaching the 2,800 mark.

But when talking about how he thinks about the grade points, Ding Liren said: “The impact of 2800 points on me is not so big. Maybe I have been too shy to talk about my ambitions, or I don’t particularly care about this rating.

The 25-year-old Ding Liren did not like to set goals for himself, but he made up his mind to continue to take the road of chess. Many of the friends in the previous circle chose to retire and found another way, but he still firmly pursued his dream. “Always participate in high-level competitions, so that the level can be stabilized at a high level, and the results may come naturally.”

Chatting from football to the National League

As a sportsman, the World Cup is a game that Ding Li will not miss. He laughed and said that he was a fake fan: “The original support was for Italy, and later briefly supported Argentina, now it is purely ‘eat melons’.”

Speaking of the league, Ding Liren talked: “The Chess League is a football league. The football league is well developed because there are many football fans. Every weekend the fans watch the ball and support their favorite team. This is for them. It’s like a habit. The meaning of the existence of a chess league may be the same. Although there are still so many fans concerned, I think its existence is to give chess fans a look and thoughts.”

The third leg of the National Chess League has just ended in Jiaxing. Ding Liren, although unable to personally go into battle, is still eager to pay attention to the progress of the game. Under the leadership of Ding Liren, the Zhejiang team is very aggressive in the league this year. Although it is temporarily impossible to go to the scene, Ding Liren will still encourage the players in the WeChat group of the Zhejiang team, and also assist the coach to lead the formation.

Let us hope that Ding Liren will recover soon and come out again to bring more breakthroughs and excitement to Chinese chess!

Kovalenko wins Baltic Zonal – Liepaja

Chessdom - Mon, 07/16/2018 - 11:36

The Baltic Zonal-Liepaja was a 9-round Swiss tournament which took place from 9-15 July 2018 in Liepaja, Latvia. This is the third of three Baltic Zonal tournaments and the overall winner qualifies for the 2019 Chess World Cup.

Liepāja Stage in the Baltic Zone Tournament ended in Liepāja on Sunday. At 7 points out of 9, Latvia’s GM Igor Kovalenko (2624) won the first place in the three-stage sum, and thus also the ticket for the World Cup to be held next year in Khanty-Mansiysk (Russia).

In the classical chess competition, which was attended by 24 almost all leading chess players of the Baltic States, the second place with 6.5 points was won by GM Šarūnas Šulskis (Lithuania, 2507). Third place was shared by seven people with 5.5 points and respectively the following places were taken by GM Otomārs Ladva (Estonia, 2498 ), GM Kaido Kulaots (Estonia, 2555), IM Pauļi Pultinavich (Lithuania, 2422), IM Vitaly Samolin (2400), GM Artur Neikshan (2567), IM Tomass Laurus (Lithuania, 2465) and GM Vidmantas Mališauskas (Lithuania, 2432). )

Following the traditions of the previous stages (Tallinn and Palanga), one of the players performed in Liepaja either the (GM) or (IM) norm. This time it was the Estonian Iļja Sirošs (2339), who was already subjected to the second international master’s norm. He ranked tenth with 5 points.

Kovaļenko scored 52 points in the three-stage overall, 38 in Neiksan, 34 in Shulsk, 33 in Laurusha, while Nikita Meskov – 28.

The prize pool for each round of the Baltic Region Tournament (which is also the FIDE presidential candidate Kirsan Ilyumzinov Cup) is 10,000 Euros, of which the winner receives 2500, while the winner of the 12th place is 200 Euros. Depending on the place won, players are entitled to 2 to 20 points. The chess player, who has the highest score in the three-stage overall, gets a token for the 2019 World Cup, which takes place every two years.

Igor Kovalenko will play in it for the third year in a row. He qualified for the first time from the Baltic regional tournament, the second time from the European Championship (becoming the continental champion), but now again from the Baltic zone.

The World Cup is one of the stages of the World Chess Championship. There are 128 players behind the squad. The two best players get the opportunity to participate in the 2020 World Championship Candidate tournament.

Άγριες φράουλες

Skakistiko - Fri, 07/13/2018 - 13:14


Μια σκακιέρα στις «Άγριες Φράουλες» του Ίνγκμαρ Μπέργκμαν.

H ταινία ξεκινά μ’ έναν φοβερό εφιάλτη, όπου ο γηραιός καθηγητής Ιατρικής ο οποίος πρόκειται να τιμηθεί από την Ακαδημία για την προσφορά του στην επιστήμη βλέπει, σ’ ένα φέρετρο που πέφτει από μια νεκροφόρα και ανοίγει μπροστά του, τον εαυτό του νεκρό ενώ ένα ρολόι, χωρίς δείκτες, «δείχνει» την ώρα του Θανάτου. Ο ηλικιωμένος άνδρας (έξοχα ερμηνευμένος από τον μεγάλο σκηνοθέτη της εποχής του βωβού Βίκτορ Σγιόστρομ), ο οποίος στο βωμό της επιτυχίας και της καταξίωσης, θυσίασε την χαρά της ζωής και τους χυμούς του έρωτα, στεγνώνοντας την ψυχή του, κάνει το τελευταίο του ταξίδι, ταυτόχρονα ξαναζεί τη ζωή του και συμφιλιώνεται με το φόβο του θανάτου. Ένα γλυκόπικρο οδοιπορικό στις αναμνήσεις και τα όνειρα της ανθρώπινης ύπαρξης.

Μαζί του και η νύφη του, που αρχικά τον αντιμετωπίζει εχθρικά γιατί της θυμίζει τον άντρα της τον οποίο έχει αποφασίσει να εγκαταλείψει. Στο δρόμο θα συναντήσουν κι άλλα πρόσωπα, αφορμή για ένα στοχασμό πάνω στις ανθρώπινες σχέσεις, το φλερτ, τη ζηλοτυπία, την πίκρα, αλλά και τις μικρές χαρές της ζωής.

Ένα ταξίδι που φέρνει τον Μποργκ αντιμέτωπο με το παρόν αλλά και το παρελθόν, άλλοτε μέσα από τις πραγματικές συναντήσεις (το μεσήλικο ζευγάρι που καβγαδίζει), άλλοτε από τις φανταστικές, σε φλας μπακ, συναντήσεις του με την οικογένειά του, το κορίτσι με το οποίο ήταν ερωτευμένος στα νεανικά του χρόνια, κι όπου, σε μία «συνάντησή» τους στο δάσος τού προσφέρει άγριες φράουλες, (σκηνές στις οποίες, ενώ βλέπουμε τους άλλους σε νεανική ηλικία, ο Μποργκ παραμένει πάντα ηλικιωμένος, χωρίς να τον βλέπουν οι άλλοι, στοιχείο που θα το εκμεταλλευτούν στη συνέχεια διάφοροι σκηνοθέτες), κι άλλοτε μέσα από τους εφιάλτες του, ιδιαίτερα εκείνον στην αρχή της ταινίας, με τον Μποργκ να περπατά σε μία έρημη πόλη και να βλέπει μία νεκροφόρα να κατρακυλά στο δρόμο και ν’ αναποδογυρίζεται το φέρετρο όπου μέσα είναι ο ίδιος – σύμβολο για το θάνατο που έχει αρχίσει να απασχολεί τον Μποργκ.

Ταινία γεμάτη θαυμάσιες σκηνές, δοσμένες με φαντασία και πρωτοτυπία από έναν από τους πιο σημαντικούς σκηνοθέτες του παγκόσμιου κινηματογράφου. Πηγή

Kirsan Ilyumzhinov commented in Russian press:

“They have no right. They have been trying for a long time since November 25, 2015, when I was included in the US sanctions list. I believe that this is interference in the internal affairs of an international organization. But I do not give up, I do not submit to resigning. I will fight. I will go to CAS – the international arbitration court. I believe that this is a violation of human rights, interference in internal affairs. This is the decision of one of the ministries of one of the states, “Ilyumzhinov said.
