Skakistiko - Fri, 07/21/2017 - 12:41

Τη φωτογραφία μου έστειλε ο Ν.Σ. Είναι τραβηγμένη στις 17 Ιουλίου στο κέντρο της πρωτεύουσας της Κολομβίας, της Μπογοτά. Τα μπουφάν και η ψυχρή ατμόσφαιρα δεν παραξενεύουν διότι η πόλη αν και είναι περίπου στη γραμμή του Ισημερινού και δεν γνωρίζει τις τέσσερις εποχές παρά μόνο περιόδους ξηρασίας και βροχών, είναι χτισμένη σε υψόμετρο 2.600 μέτρων και όταν ο καιρός φέρνει λίγο κρύο, γίνεται πολύ αισθητό. Στη φωτογραφία δεν είναι διακριτό, αλλά ο Ν.Σ. μας πληροφορεί ότι η κοπέλα με το άσπρο ρούχο στο δεξί μέρος της εικόνας εκτελεί μια συγκροτημένη με βάση τις σκακιστικές αρχές επίθεση με τα μαύρα (δηλαδή καθόλου χαρακτήρα “σκακιού του δρόμου”) και συγχρόνως θεαματική κερδίζοντας την παρτίδα.
Η Μπογοτά μόνο τον απόηχο γνώρισε, του εμφυλίου πολέμου που διεξαγόταν στις επαρχίες και γέμισε πληγές τη χώρα 52 ολόκληρα χρόνια με εκατέρωθεν θύτες. Το μαρξιστικό FARC, με την πλατιά αγροτική του βάση, θεώρησε το 2016 πως πρέπει να καταπαύσει το πυρ και την πάλη με τον κυβερνητικό στρατό καθώς και με τις παραστρατιωτικές οργανώσεις της άκρας δεξιάς και υπογράφτηκε συμφωνία ειρήνης που δεν εκλήφθη ως σαρωτική ήττα γιατί περιλαμβάνει και σημαντικές υποχωρήσεις από τους κυβερνητικούς – το τι θα τηρηθεί δεν το ξέρει κανείς.  Τα καρτέλ της κόκας του Μεντεγίν βεβαίως θα συνεχίσουν να δρουν ανενόχλητα, αλλά αυτό ας υποθέσουμε πως είναι άλλο θέμα και το μέλλον της πολύπαθης χώρας αβέβαιο, όπως συμβαίνει συχνά σε όλη αυτή την ταραγμένη ζώνη της Λατινικής Αμερικής.

In Memoriam - Andrew Paulson

FIDE - Wed, 07/19/2017 - 14:14



Andrew Paulson, the founder and director of Agon Limited, passed away on 18th of July 2017, after a long battle with cancer. He became known in the chess world when he established AGON Limited in 2012 and signed a contract with FIDE to organize and promote the events of the World Championship cycle. He successfully organized the very famous Candidates tournament in London 2013, which attracted a lot of attention from media and spectators and was one of the most crucial tournaments for the future World Champion Magnus Carlsen.
Exclusively for the Candidates tournament the head of AGON presented the new design of the playing hall and the ChessCasting software that is being used to transmit the games live to the world to get a more personal experience while following the tournament. Andrew also came up with the idea to create especially designed Championship chess set of World Chess. The chess set with the new Staunton piece design became the regular one for such top events as Grand Prix tournaments and the World Championship Matches.
In October 2013 Andrew Paulson was elected as President of the English Chess Federation but after a few months he stepped down.
In summer 2014 he withdrew from AGON and Ilya Merenzon took over the company.
Andrew Paulson is famous as the founder of “Afisha” magazine, an entertainment and listings magazine that became the cultural touchstone of Moscow and St. Petersburg, and SUP Media, which became Russia’s largest online media company.

Andrew Paulson approached everything with great enthusiasm and boldness and will be much missed by all his many friends throughout the world.

Λούκι Λουκ

Skakistiko - Wed, 07/19/2017 - 09:12

(ανάρτηση αρχείου)


Στην αυγή της δεκαετίας του ’90, ο ιταλοαυστριακός ηθοποιός Τέρενς Χιλ (κατά κόσμον Mάριο Τζιρότι) έκανε μια προσωπική απόπειρα να μεταφέρει τα κατορθώματα του Λούκι Λουκ στο σινεμά, παίζοντας ο ίδιος τον ρόλο του ήρωα στην ταινία «Λούκι Λουκ». Μια μεγάλη αποτυχία. Σε καμία περίπτωση ο Λούκι Λουκ των Μορίς και Γκοσινί δεν έχει το χοντροκομμένο χιούμορ των ταινιών «Τρινιτά», των «σπαγκέτι» γουέστερν στα οποία διέπρεψε ο Τέρενς Χιλ (με τον Μπαντ Σπένσερ). Το ύφος του Τρινιτά χαρακτηρίζει και τον κινηματογραφικό «Λούκι Λουκ» και είναι το στοιχείο που καταστρέφει την ταινία.


Στην ταινία υπάρχει σκηνή που ο Λούκι Λουκ παίζει σκάκι στην όχθη του ποταμιού με την πιστή του φοράδα, τη Ντόλι. Θα παρατηρήσετε πώς για μια ακόμη φορά σε κινηματογραφική ταινία η σκακιέρα είναι τοποθετημένη με λάθος τρόπο (δείτε τα τετράγωνα της α στήλης). Ψιλά γράμματα θα μου πείτε για μία δευτερεύουσας σημασίας ταινία, όταν το ίδιο λάθος ακριβώς έχει διαπιστωθεί στην πιο υποβλητική σκηνή όλης της ιστορίας του κινηματογράφου όπου περιέχεται σκακιστικό παιχνίδι , στην περίφημη σκηνή της «Έβδομης Σφραγίδας» του Μπέργκμαν.

Alexander Morozevich turns 40

Chessdom - Tue, 07/18/2017 - 22:09

On July 18, a Russian grandmaster Alexander Morozevich celebrates his 40th anniversary. Our congratulations to the outstanding chess player!

Alexander is the winner of many strong international tournaments. He has represented Russia in seven Olympiads and other team events, winning numerous team and board medals. Morozevich is a two-time World Championship Candidate and a two-time Russian Champion. For several years he has been in top 10 and sometimes in top 5 of the FIDE rating list.

Alexander Morozevich

Morozevich is one of the most original grandmasters of our time. He has never been an opening expert; vice versa, he prefers to wage a fight in middlegames. But Morozevich manages to surprise his opponents even in a very well-known theoretical positions, reviving old lines and finding new ideas in typical structures.

He is original not only at the chessboard, but also outside of it, which seems to make him even more popular among chess lovers.

Morozevich is against half measures: he is always fighting till the very end, using all resources to continue playing. However, from time to time, Alexander quits chess. Thus, in 2010, he had almost stopped playing in tournaments, but, as a result, the interest in him grew a lot.

After his return in 2011, which started after his winning the Russian Higher League in Taganrog, Morozevich was performing successfully at many tournaments: he took 2nd places in Biel and the Russian Championship Superfinal and won the super tournament in Saratov. He was close to win Tal Memorial in 2012 and became the winner of the super tournament in Poikovsky in 2014.

Recently, Alexander has seldom played in classical tournaments but his results in rapid and blitz events are rather high. In particular, he won several stages of the Russian Rapid Grand Prix. Some years ago he got interested in Go. On a regular basis, he meets with Go amateurs, as well as with chess lovers.

He is also popular trainer and commentator.
