Το πίσω δωμάτιο

Skakistiko - Tue, 07/03/2018 - 01:10

(φωτ. Η σκακιέρα της τρίτης παρτίδας, με τις υπογραφές του Σπάσκι και του Φίσερ στο κέντρο. Στην τοποθέτηση των κομματιών, στη φωτ. του 2011, ο λευκός βασιλιάς και η λευκή βασίλισσα είναι σε λάθος θέσεις!)

Στο «ματς του αιώνα» το 1972, στην πρώτη παρτίδα ο Φίσερ ηττήθηκε από τον Σπάσκι μετά από ανεξήγητο λάθος απλού μετρήματος του Αμερικανού σε ισόπαλο φινάλε. Ο Φίσερ δεν εμφανίστηκε στη δεύτερη παρτίδα και έτσι ο Ρώσος πρωταθλητής κόσμου βρέθηκε να προηγείται με σκορ 2-0. Ο Μπόμπι Φίσερ, τον οποίο ενοχλούσαν τα πάντα, το κοινό, ο φωτισμός, οι σκιές, τα βήματα, απαίτησε η τρίτη παρτίδα να παιχτεί σε ένα μικρό δωμάτιο πίσω από τη σκηνή χωρίς θεατές. Ο Σπάσκι δέχτηκε, ο Φίσερ κέρδισε μειώνοντας τη διαφορά.  Η σκακιέρα και τα κομμάτια που χρησιμοποιήθηκαν από τους δυο παίκτες σε εκείνη την τρίτη παρτίδα βγήκαν σε δημοπρασία την άνοιξη του 2011 στη Νέα Υόρκη.  Η σκακιέρα βρισκόταν στην ιδιωτική συλλογή του Γκουντμουντούρ Θόραρινσον, πρώην προέδρου της Ισλανδικής ομοσπονδίας σκακιού.  Οι άλλες 20 παρτίδες, οι παρτίδες της κεντρικής σκηνής, παίχτηκαν σε άλλη σκακιέρα η οποία φυλάσσεται σαν κειμήλιο, με γυάλινο κάλυμμα, στο Ρέικγιαβικ.

Για την ιστορική τρίτη παρτίδα, ο βοηθός του Φίσερ, ο Λόμπαρντι, έγραφε στο ‘A Mystery Wrapped in an Enigma’:

Ο Μπόρις Σπάσκι συμφώνησε με την απαίτηση του Φίσερ να γίνει η παρτίδα στο δωματιάκι του πιγκ πογκ αν και αργότερα ομολόγησε πως επρόκειτο για μεγάλο ψυχολογικό λάθος.  Όταν έφτασε ο Μπόμπι, ο Σπάσκι ως συνήθως καθόταν στην καρέκλα του και περίμενε. Ο Μπόμπι δεν κάθησε, αλλά πήγε να ελέγξει τις κάμερες, να ακούσει αν κάνουν θόρυβο. Ο διαιτητής, ο Λόταρ Σμιτ βρισκόταν σε μεγάλη ανησυχία καθώς αισθανόταν πως υπήρχε μεγάλος κίνδυνος το ματς να μην συνεχιστεί και έπιασε τον Φίσερ από το μπράτσο, για να τον οδηγήσει στη σκακιέρα.  Ο Αμερικανός δεν είχε όμως  την παραμικρή διάθεση να ακολουθήσει τον Γερμανό στο τραπέζι, πριν ολοκληρώσει την αυτοψία στις κάμερες. Μόνο αφού έμεινε ικανοποιημένος, κάθησε στο τραπέζι.  

Η παρτίδα είναι αξιομνημόνευτη και για θεωρητικούς λόγους. Ο Μπόμπι Φίσερ εμφάνισε στη σκακιέρα μια καινούργια ιδέα σε σχηματισμούς Μοντέρνου Μπενόνι, την ιδέα …Ιζ6-θ5, επιτρέποντας στον λευκό να κόψει Α:θ5. Μετά από το …η:θ5 ο μαύρος καταστρέφει τη δομή πιονιών του, όμως αποκτά ιδιαίτερα δυναμικό παιχνίδι.

Οι κάτοικοι της πρωτεύουσας Μοντεβιδέο ελπίζουν σε ένα παρόμοιο θαύμα με εκείνο του 1950, που η μικρή Ουρουγουάη, η δεύτερη μικρότερη ανεξάρτητη χώρα στη Νότια Αμερική, κέρδισε στον τελικό τη Βραζιλία μέσα στο σπίτι της, στο Μαρακανά, και σήκωσε το τρόπαιο βυθίζοντας στην απελπισία δεκάδες εκατομμύρια Βραζιλιάνους. Τα σχολεία κλείνουν, στους ναούς οι ιερείς απευθύνουν ευχές. Η φρενίτιδα που επικρατεί δεν εμποδίζει όμως έναν ζωγράφο δρόμου και έναν καταστηματάρχη, να παίξουν μια παρτίδα σκάκι, σε ένα δρομάκι του κέντρου του Μοντεβιδέο (φωτ.

Swedish Chess Championships 2018

Chessdom - Sat, 06/30/2018 - 16:48

All classes: Championship, Masters Elite, Masters, Seniors 50+, Seniors 65+, Juniors The Swedish Chess Championship takes place from 30 June to 8 July 2018 in Stockholm, Sweden. Players receive 90 minutes for 40 moves, followed by 30 minutes to the end of the game, plus a 30-second increment starting from move one.
The preparations are ready and now the nearly 600 players are invited to the spa town of Ronneby. Håkan Jalling, chairman of the competition committee, believes that many of the chess players will have a positive surprise.

“It’s amazingly beautiful here in Ronneby and the place where we have the SM competitions,” he says. Really very nice.

Ronneby Brunn is an attractive holiday resort known for the great beautiful Brunnsparken. The resort adjacent to the hotel expects 70,000 guests each year. Here you are really spoiled as a guest, spa treatments, massage, swimming, sunbathing

The Swedish champion class: Hans Tikkanen-Axel Smith, Jonathan Westerberg-Oskar Von Bahr, Nils Grandelius-Erik Blomqvist, Jung My Seo-Tiger Hillarp Persson and Jonny Hector-Pia Cramling. The championship elite: Fredrik Lindh-Jan Lundin, Michael Wiedenkeller-Jan-Olov Lindh, Tom Rydström-Harald Lögdahl, Andreas Landgren-Erik Malmstig and Ari Ziegler-Johan Furhoff. Junior SM: Ludvig Carlsson-Milton Pantzar, Emanuel Sundin-Axel Berglind, Leo Crevatin-Kaan Kücüksari, Isak Storme-Alfon Emmoth and Hampus Sörensen-André Forsberg.

Overcoming champion Hans Tikkanen is white against Axel Smith in the first round of this year’s SM competitions. The draw to the SM groups was conducted in the commentary room for a live audience on site and on the Swedish Chess Union’s Youtube channel. Favorite Nils Grandelius meets Erik Blomqvist as white while Hans Tikkanen is already waiting for around 3, then with Grandelius with the white plays.

“For some strange reason, I always meet Erik with the white pieces,” says Nils Grandelius with a laugh right after the pairings.

The atmosphere among the participants was easy and happy. Neither Erik Blomqvist nor Nils Grandelius think the drawing really is so important.

“No, I always have only the next game in front of my eyes, just know my next opponent,” says Nils Grandelius. Certainly it’s important to play the most white games, but not so it’s crucial.

Dvorkovich announces ticket, Ilyumzhinov withdraws

Chessdom - Sat, 06/30/2018 - 15:54

On 29th June, the press conference of Arkady Dvorkovich took place in Moscow. The candidate for FIDE President in particular highlighted his goals and objectives and announced his ticket.

“I have recently told about my plans to run for FIDE President and today I officially confirm it. The necessary documents will be forwarded to FIDE Secretariat by July 3rd”, says Arkady Dvorkovich. “The support from the RCF and other federations was asked, and I am grateful to my colleagues from the Russian Chess Federation who backed me up almost unanimously. The goal of my press conference is to inform the chess community about my plans, why and with whom I am running for FIDE President”.

According to Arkady Dvorkovich, his team consists of Deputy President Bachar Kouatly (France), Vice-Presidents Mahir Mammedov (Azerbaijan) and Julio Granda Zuniga (Peru), General Secretary Sewa Enyonam Fumey (Togo), and Treasurer Zhu Chen (Qatar).

Arkady Dvorkovich

“I will promote chess and make contracts regardless the FIDE presidential elections’ outcome”, adds Arkady Dvorkovich. “There are companies which will invest in chess development. I have an experience in the organization of chess competitions, for example, Tal Memorial. It requires a fair amount of money and an enormous work, – is there a substitute for it? Of course, it is, but it all depends on a team, and I have something to offer. I don’t consider anyone as a rival, because we all have one goal to develop chess in the world, that’s why the one who wins shall unite everyone. Georgious Makropoulos has a great experience in the work in FIDE, Nigel Short is very famous in the world of chess, but I hope that our arguments but I hope that our arguments prevail in the end”.

Shortly after the press conference, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov stated for Interfax that he decided to withdraw from the race for the FIDE presidency and is supporting Dvorkovich bid.

The FIDE Presidential elections takes place during the FIDE Congress in Batumi, Georgia, on October 3.

Ιούνιος 1962, στην πόλη Βίνα ντελ Μαρ της Χιλής, Παγκόσμιο Κύπελλο Ποδοσφαίρου. Δυο χρόνια πριν, το μεσημέρι της 22ης Μαΐου 1960, η χώρα είχε χτυπηθεί από τον πιο σφοδρό σεισμό που έχει καταγραφεί στη σύγχρονη ιστορία του πλανήτη, 9,5 βαθμών της κλίμακας Ρίχτερ, που προκάλεσε τον θάνατο σε χιλιάδες ανθρώπους και υλικές καταστροφές αρμαγεδδωνικής έκτασης.

Το απόκοσμο αυτό φαινόμενο χαράχτηκε ανεξίτηλα στη συλλογική μνήμη, θυμάμαι ενδεικτικά την Ισαμπέλ Αλιέντε, που γράφει για την ανάμνηση του Gran terremoto de Chile στο «Σπίτι των Πνευμάτων». Όλα λοιπόν έδειχναν πως η Χιλή θα εγκατέλειπε τη διοργάνωση της ποδοσφαιρικής φιέστας και οι αγώνες θα διεξάγονταν στη γειτονική Αργεντινή, τη χώρα που διέθετε τα γήπεδα, την ποδοσφαιρική κουλτούρα και ήταν αυτή που είχε κάποιο παράπονο, αφού σε σχέση με τις Ουρουγουάη και Βραζιλία, δεν είχε φιλοξενήσει το Παγκόσμιο Κύπελλο.

Τελικά αποφασίστηκε να γίνει στη Χιλή, όπως ήταν προγραμματισμένο, χάρη στο πείσμα του προέδρου της ποδοσφαιρικής ομοσπονδίας της χώρας Κάρλος Ντίμπορν, ο οποίος όμως πέθανε αιφνίδια ένα μήνα πριν ξεκινήσει εκείνο το μουντιάλ. Στη σπάνια φωτογραφία που δημοσίευσε το getty images, ο μέσος της εθνικής Βραζιλίας Βαλντίρ-Περέϊρα (γνωστός σαν Ντίντι) την παραμονή του προημιτελικού αγώνα Βραζιλίας – Αγγλίας, ξεκουράζεται παίζοντας σκάκι, στο ξενοδοχείο της αποστολής. Bασικό στέλεχος της εθνικής Βραζιλίας που κέρδισε τα Παγκόσμια Κύπελλα το 1958 και 1962, ενώ πήρε μέρος και στη διοργάνωση του 1954. O Ντίντι ανακάλυψε το φαλτσαριστό σουτ που οι συμπατριώτες του το έλεγαν «φόλια σέκα», δηλαδή «ξερό φύλλο». Αυτό το φάλτσο ήταν ο φόβος κάθε τερματοφύλακα. Έφυγε από τη ζωή στις 12 Μαΐου 2001, στο Κάμπος του Ρίο.
