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.

Travel Subsidy Batumi Olympiad

FIDE - Fri, 07/13/2018 - 12:57



FIDE is pleased to announce the travel subsidy for participants for the Chess Olympiad & Congress, Batumi, Georgia 2018. All federations will receive more travel subsidy in 2018 than they did for Baku in 2016. Many teams that did not receive a team grant in 2016 will do in 2018. They are Nigeria, South Africa, Bhutan, Chinese Taipei, Malaysia, Thailand, Iceland, Ireland, Luxembourg, Montenegro, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Scotland, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine & Wales. In addition the ECU will be paid 30,000 euros to assist federations that are not receiving any travel subsidy.

All attending delegates will receive a travel grant. FIDE wants delegates to be present at the General Assembly and reduce the number of proxies from federations.

The team subsidy is based on two teams of 5 players for the Open & Women’s event, plus team captain for each team and a head of delegation. This is a total of 13 persons. The subsidy will be reduced pro rata for every federation that does not have 13 accredited persons present. Above these 13 persons, the travel grant will be paid for a federation’s delegate without exception.

Any person amongst the thirteen accredited persons that is receiving a travel grant as an arbiter or a delegate cannot also receive a subsidy as part of the team and the team subsidy will be reduced pro rata.

Teams that have a captain assigned to them by the Trainers Commission also may not claim an extra travel subsidy for these captains covered by the Trainers Commission.
