15.09.2018 17:35 Chess : Fide election race turns bitter after Nigel Short makes pact
The bitterly fought election campaign for the presidency of the global chess body Fide will be decided on 3 October by the votes of 186 national delegates during the Fide congress in Batumi, Georgia. The issues were discussed in this column on 15 June and in Andrew Roth’s article on 2 September – but who will win? A basic difficulty for election pundits is that Greece’s Georgios Makropoulos, the establishment candidate and current Fide deputy president, claims to have 114 votes in the bag. Russia’s Arkady Dvorkovich, who comes to Fide fresh from his success as chief organiser for the Fifa World Cup, reckons he is sure of more than 90 delegates. England’s Nigel Short, standing as an anti-corruption candidate, has not stated a total but is believed to have 30-35 in his camp. Although some chess federations may have pledged twice, there is still clearly creative ...
13.09.2018 18:51 On Chess : The Batumi Chess Olympiad
The Georgian resort city of Batumi, located on the Black Sea near the Turkish border, will host the 43 Chess Olympiad. More than 1,600 players from 185 countries will compete in the bi-annual event, which is separate from the Summer and Winter Olympics. The two-week-long tournament, running from Sept. 24 to Oct. 6, will see the United States' team attempt to defend the gold medals it won as the top finisher in 2016 in Azerbaijan, its first victory in 40 years. Perennial powerhouses Russia, China and Ukraine, along with newcomers Azerbaijan and India, are among the other top-ranked chess teams in an event that traces its history back to 1927. The United States will field the same team that won two years ago: Grandmasters Fabiano Caruana, Wesley So, Hikaru Nakamura, Sam Shankland and Ray Robson. Caruana, Nakamura and Robson all ...
08.09.2018 18:20 Chess : Dmitry Andreikin ripens 1990 vintage and collects a million roubles
Russia’s annual super-final is an historic chess event which was won by the legendary Boris Spassky and other world chess champions during the Soviet era, and this week’s renewal at Satka in the Urals seemed an opportunity for a new generation in their late teens and early 20s to make a break-though. The elite were away because Satka clashed with the Sinquefield Cup at St Louis, but the young guns either began well then faded, were too uneven, or failed at the finish. Instead, the winner was Dmitry Andreikin, another of the gifted group born in the golden vintage year of 1990, which has produced more elite chess players than any other in chess history. Led by Magnus Carlsen, the class of 1990 includes the Norwegian’s 2016 challenger, Sergey Karjakin, France’s world No 5, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, Russia’s world No 12, Ian Nepomniachtchi, three-time British chess champion ...

07.09.2018 18:02 On Chess : Chess Club hosts Chess 960 event with elite headliners including Gary Kasparov
Last year, the legendary Garry Kasparov made headlines when he came out of a 12-year retirement to compete in the St. Louis Rapid & Blitz chess as part of the Grand Chess Tour. This year, he’s returning, yet again, to take part in a unique chess competition. From Sept. 11-14, the St. Louis Chess Club will host 10 of the world’s top chess players in the Champions Showdown.This will not be your average chess event. In fact, the players won’t be playing traditional chess. Instead, they will compete in Chess 960, also known as Fischer Random. Chess 960 is an increasingly popular variant in which the starting row of pieces are randomly shuffled. As a result, there are exactly 960 different possible starting positions, so players cannot rely on memorized opening preparation or deep computer analysis as they do in traditional chess. With fresh positions resulting from ...
