Year 2018 is a special one for the people with visual impairments in Bulgaria. Our country has been selected by IBCA (The International Braille Chess Association) and for the first time in our history, Bulgaria will host the World Championship for Visually Impaired Chess Players.

The World Championship for Visually Impaired Chess Players will take place between 20th and 31st July 2018 in Sofia, Bulgaria. We rely on the Ministry of Youth and Sport, the Municipality of Sofia, the business, the media and all volunteers to support our effort in organizing and providing the event at a very high level.

The event will be a part of the programme “Sofia – European Sport Capital”.
The World Championship for Visually Impaired Chess Players will be held under the patronage of the Bulgarian Minister of the Youth and the Sport, Krassen Kralev.

Bulgaria was chosen to host the World team championship at International Association of Braille Chess’ (IBCA) congress on 25th of June 2017 where (as Ivan Yanev has shared) the meeting between minister Kralev and IBCA’s president Ludwig Beutelhoff in 2015 played a key role.

In Bulgaria’s sport history it is the first event of such level to be organized by our country for visually impaired people. A similar event (however at European level) was organized in 1983 European athletics championship for visually impaired held in Varna, Bulgaria. At that event Krassen Kralev had participated as pilot runner for Norwegian athlete that won the silver medal in 5000m. competition.

Το σιμουλτανέ της Τσολακίδου στο ενετικό λιμάνι των Χανίων

Skakistiko - Fri, 07/20/2018 - 09:37

Το κορίτσι που κατάφερε να φέρει ξανά στο προσκήνιο το ελληνικό σκάκι πρωταγωνίστησε σε ένα εντυπωσιακό σκηνικό που στήθηκε προχθές στο Ενετικό Λιμάνι των Χανίων. Στο Γιαλί Τζαμισί, με φόντο τον παλιό Φάρο, έπαιξε σκάκι με 33 αντιπάλους από την Κρήτη επί σχεδόν πέντε ώρες.
Η 18χρονη Σταυρούλα Τσολακίδου από την Καβάλα, τρεις φορές παγκόσμια πρωταθλήτρια, θεωρείται η σπουδαιότερη σκακίστρια που έχει βγάλει η χώρα μας, ενώ είναι ενδεικτικό ότι έχει κατακτήσει όλους τους τίτλους της αγωνιζόμενη σε κατηγορίες μεγαλύτερες από την ηλικία της.
Το εντυπωσιακό σιμουλτανέ διοργανώθηκε από τη δραστήρια Σκακιστική Ακαδημία Χανίων – Σαμαριά και τον Δήμο Χανίων στο πλαίσιο του Διεθνούς Τουρνουά Σκακιού Παλαιόχωρας που ξεκίνησε χθες με τη συμμετοχή 230 σκακιστών από 40 χώρες.

Ομορφη εμπειρία
«Ηταν η πρώτη φορά που έπαιξα σιμουλτανέ στα Χανιά και το επίπεδο των παιδιών ήταν πολύ υψηλό. Ηταν μια όμορφη εμπειρία. Θέλω όποτε μπορώ να κάνω κάτι καλό για να προβάλω το σκάκι», λέει η Σταυρούλα Τσολακίδου στα «ΝΕΑ» και συμπληρώνει πως τα ατομικά της σχέδια περιλαμβάνουν το Παγκόσμιο Τουρνουά Σκάκι για ηλικίες κάτω των 20 τον Σεπτέμβριο και την προετοιμασία με την εθνική ομάδα σκάκι για την Ολυμπιάδα. Αξίζει να αναφερθεί ότι η Σταυρούλα έχει τον τίτλο της Woman Grand Master από το 2016, φέτος κατέκτησε επίσης τον τίτλο διεθνούς μετρ σε επίπεδο ανδρών ενώ τον Ιούνιο αποφοίτησε από το λύκειο με βαθμολογία 19,4.

«Στον αγώνα σημειώθηκε μία ισοπαλία ενώ ένας παίκτης, ο Παναγιώτης Τσαγκαράκης, σημείωσε και νίκη. Ομως τελικός νικητής ήταν το άθλημα γιατί το καταευχαριστήθηκαν όλοι», λέει στα «ΝΕΑ» ο Γιάννης Σπυριδάκης, πρόεδρος της Σκακιστικής Ακαδημίας Χανίων – Σαμαριά. «Η Σταυρούλα Τσολακίδου είναι ένα εξαιρετικό παιδί, ένας απίστευτος χαρακτήρας, προσιτή, προσγειωμένη, με ένα μόνιμο χαμόγελο που σε φέρνει πολύ κοντά της. Το επίπεδο του νομού μας είναι τόσο υψηλό που η ήττα την ευχαρίστησε. Αλλωστε όταν παίζεις με 33 παίκτες ταυτόχρονα, είναι δικαιολογημένη», συμπληρώνει.
Η Σταυρούλα Τσολακίδου τιμήθηκε με το Χρυσό Μετάλλιο της Πόλης των Χανίων και από χθες συμμετέχει στο Διεθνές Τουρνουά Παλαιόχωρας.
«Εκτός των άλλων, τέτοιες εκδηλώσεις στις τουριστικές περιοχές μπορούν να συμβάλουν σημαντικά και στον αθλητικό τουρισμό. Αυτό είναι κάτι που εμείς το προωθούμε ως σύλλογος τόσο με το Τουρνουά της Παλαιόχωρας που θα φέρει 800 άτομα για οκτώ ημέρες σε μια μικρή επαρχιακή πόλη των Χανίων όσο και με άλλες κινήσεις, όπως την φιλοξενία του πανελληνίου πρωταθλήματος», λέει ο Σπυριδάκης.

Μεγάλη επιτυχία

Το Τουρνουά της Παλαιόχωρας διοργανώνεται φέτος για 11η χρονιά με τεράστια επιτυχία. Είναι ένα από τα δύο σπουδαιότερα τουρνουά σκάκι στην Ελλάδα και πληροί τις προϋποθέσεις που θέτει η Διεθνής Σκακιστική Ομοσπονδία για να χαρακτηριστεί διεθνές. «Για να θεωρείται ένα τουρνουά διεθνές πρέπει να έχει τουλάχιστον 8 παίκτες γκραν μετρ – στην Παλαιόχωρα έχουμε 20 – πρέπει να έχει συμμετοχές από οκτώ χώρες και πάνω και εμείς έχουμε 40 χώρες. Εχουμε 230 συμμετοχές, θα διαρκέσει οκτώ ημέρες και οι αντίπαλοι είναι πολύ υψηλού επιπέδου», σημειώνει ο Σπυριδάκης.
Τα Χανιά θα βρεθούν στο επίκεντρο της παγκόσμιας σκακιστικής κοινότητας για λίγες ημέρες και όπως φαίνεται αυτό δεν συμβαίνει τυχαία. «Η Σκακιστική Ακαδημία Χανίων – Σαμαριά κερδίζει κάθε χρόνο στα νεανικά και σχολικά πρωταθλήματα το περίπου 30-50% των μεταλλίων. Τα υπόλοιπα μετάλλια μοιράζονται στους υπόλοιπους 290 συλλόγους της Ελλάδας. Επίσης, είχαμε τη δυνατότητα και συμμετέχουμε με δύο ομάδες από το φυτώριό μας στην εθνική ομάδα ενώ είμαστε τρεις συνεχόμενες φορές πρωταθλητές Ελλάδας στα ομαδικά νεανικά πρωταθλήματα. Εχουμε την τύχη να έχουμε έναν από τους κορυφαίους προπονητές σκακιού, τον Κώστα Τσαρουχά, ο οποίος είναι ο άνθρωπος που μεταμόρφωσε το σκάκι στα Χανιά και εκείνος που βρισκόταν πίσω από τις επιτυχίες μεγάλων σκακιστών πριν 20 χρόνια, όπως του Κύδωνα και της Κουβάτσου η οποία είχε βγει επίσης παγκόσμια πρωταθλήτρια», εξηγεί.

«Το σκάκι είναι ένα ευγενές άθλημα που απαιτεί σκέψη, οξύνει τον νου και εισφέρει στην σφυρηλάτηση του χαρακτήρα αλλά παράλληλα είναι και ένα άθλημα που δίνει μεγάλες διακρίσεις. Η Σταυρούλα είναι ένα καλό παράδειγμα, μας έχει κάνει γνωστούς παγκοσμίως μέσα από ένα άθλημα στο οποίο η Ελλάδα δεν έχει μεγάλη παράδοση. Χρειάζεται ταλέντο. Χρειάζεται πολλή αγάπη, είναι απαιτητικό άθλημα, αφού ένας εξάχρονος αθλητής μπορεί να κάτσει τρεις και τέσσερις ώρες να σκεφτεί τι πρέπει να κάνει για να κερδίσει τον αντίπαλό του. Φέτος είχαμε 11 μαθητές μας που έδωσαν Πανελλαδικές Εξετάσεις. Και οι 11 εισήχθησαν σε Πανεπιστήμια ενώ οι δύο μπήκαν σε Ιατρική Σχολή. Αυτό θεωρώ ότι δεν είναι τυχαίο».

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!
