Three candidates for FIDE President 2018 – 2022

Wed, 07/04/2018 - 16:19

It is official – three candidates will run for the post of FIDE President in the 2018 elections – Arkady Dvorkovich, Georgios Makropoulos, and Nigel Short. A total of 83 federations have expressed official support for the candidates, by nominating them for the elections. Arkady Dvorkovich is supported by 13 nations – 4 from Africa, 1 from Americas, 3 from Asia, and 5 from Europe. A total of 64 member nations support Georgios Makropoulos with 12 from Africa, 22 from Americas, 12 from Asia, and 18 from Europe. Nigel Short starts with 6 national federation nominations – 1 from Africa, 1 from Americas, 1 from Asia, and 3 from Europe.

The continental battles will be far less exciting with a race only in Africa and Asia. In Africa three candidates have applied successfully before the deadline – Essis Essoh (Ivory Coast), Lewis Ncube (Zambia), and Tshepo Sitale (Botswana). In Asia there are two candidates – Sheikh Sultan bin Khalifah Al Nahyan (UAE) and Ignatius Leong (SIN). However, the candidature of Ignatius Leong was sent and received nearly an hour later the announced deadline and included only three signed nominations. In accordance with FIDE Electoral Rules and Chapter 6 of FIDE Statutes, its acceptance and regularity is under review by the Chairman of the Electoral Commission, taking into account the specific rules of the Asian Continental Association.

In Europe and Latin America there is no race. Zurab Azmaiparashvili and Jorge Vega are the only candidates. With both supporting Makropoulos, there is a high chance that more votes from those continents join his ticket, adding to the current 64.

A retrospective analysis shows that Georgios Makropoulos starts with the higher advantage compared to recent elections. For example, in the previous FIDE elections of 2014, Ilyumzhinov started with 56 nominations against the 20 who supported Kasparov.

Swedish Chess Championships 2018

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

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.
