Mitropa Cup 2018

Mon, 05/21/2018 - 20:22

The 36th edition of the Mitropa Cup is being held in Isola Capo Rizzuto, Italy, from May 30th to June 9th.
The traditional team event this year brings together 10 nations competing against each other in an Open and a Women section on 4 boards each.
Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland.

The Mitropa Cup is the annual team chess
tournament for national teams from Central Europe. The word Mitropa is a derivative of German
Mittel Europa (Central Europe): MITtel euROPA.
The idea of the Mitropa Cup came from Gertrude Wagner, who wanted to create a chess team
tournament after the example of respective football competition, together with her husband Karl and
the president of the Austrian Chess Federation Kurt Jungwirth were the founders and organizers of
the tournament. The event commenced in 1976: Grtrude will organize the next twenty editons.
The event commenced in 1976 in Innsbruck. Germany, Austria, Yugoslavia, Switzerland,
Italy and Luxembourg participated (Austria and Yugoslavia with two teams). Germany won this
first tournament. On the next year the second edition took place in Bad Kohlgrub, West Germany,
where Austria chalked the trophy.
From 1978 until 1991 West Germany and Yugoslavia dominated the event just to rotate at the
top of the table, with the sole exception of 1982, when France took their first win playing on the
home soil. The list of participating teams was very stable: Yugoslavia, West Germany, France,
Austria, Switzerland, Italy and Luxembourg.
The early 1990s saw major political changes in Central and Eastern Europe, i.e. dissolution of
the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia as well as unification of two German states.
Yugoslavia withdrew from Mitropa Cup in 1991 following factual dissolution of the Yugoslav
federation and the UN embargo imposed on Serbia. The former Yugoslav republics to enter the
competition were Slovenia and Croatia. It must be stressed that team labelled Yugoslavia, who won
the trophy in 1991, comprised of Slovenian players.
Czechoslovakia appeared in 1991 but as soon as the state federation was dissolved two
independent republics, the Czech Republic and Slovakia emerged to join the cup. Another landmark
event was Hungary’s accession in 1990. Luxembourg left the competition in 1990 while the
Netherlands appeared twice: in 1993 and 1995.
Starting from 1995 the Mitropa Cup saw the size extended from 7 to 10 teams.

Ju Wenjun wins Women’s World Championship Match

Sat, 05/19/2018 - 13:30

The tenth game of the Women’s World Chess Championship Match finished with a draw and with the final score 4.5-5.5.the challenger Ju Wenjun became the new Women’s World Champion.
After the 9th game, Ju Wenjun has got the match point, she needed a draw to win the match. It was a difficult task for the current champion Tan Zhongyi, to win with black was the only way to bring the match to tie-break.
Ju Wenjun played white today, she started with 1.d4, Tan Zhongyi reacted with 1…g6 and the game went to Pirc defence. She wanted to complicate the game and to avoid the opening preparation. Ju Wenjun played solid and keep small advantage. In the middle game, Tan Zhongyi played 19…g5 trying to fight in the king side. However it looks a little bit premature. That didn’t scare Ju Wenjun, she reacted to it actively. Quickly she had a pawn up, and got total control on the board.
As she needed a draw Ju Wenjun’s last moves were quite solid trying to avoid any complication. In the end, after 4hours 10 minute, Ju Wenjun was with advantage, but accepted Tan Zhongyi’s draw offer to end the game.

At the post game conference, the two players analyzed the game. In both their opinion, 19…g5 was a dubious move, but Tan Zhongyi said that she had to fight to win due to the score situation, so she had no choice but give it a go. Mr. Ye Jiangchuan, the coach of Chinese national team, attended today’s conference, in his opinion, g5 was moved in a wrong time, 19…Nf6 could be a better choice back to that time, and then black can wait for better opportunities. Ju Wenjun said it was a task for her when after 19…g5, whether go 20.h4 to make the position complicated or not to, eventually she decided to accept the fight with 20.h4. And at the end, she knew she was with big advantage, but draw was enough for her to win this championship match, so she accepted Tan Zhongyi’s draw suggestion.

In the following interview section, both players expressed their gratitude to their team, their hometown leaders, friends, family and fans. Ju Wenjun gave her special thanks to her coach GM Ni Hua for so much support, Tan Zhongyi said her coach GM Zhou Weiqi worked harder then her from the match preparation until the end. Even though she didn’t win, she is looking forward for future cooperation. She had not too much regret for the last game, she thought the main problem was that she played terrible in the second and third games in Shanghai. Because psychological and mentally for both it was very tough, she prefers the knockout system for the World championship.
Ju Wenjun said, that being a chess player, she preffered so just focus and play, not to think about winning or losing before this championship. And she of course is happy with the victory. The most difficult moment was 7th game. Because after 6 hours fierce battle in 6th game, it took her too much physical effort, and then she lost, so she was in a really bad mood too. So the 7th game is extremely hard. The good thing is that she adjusted the state of mind in time.
Mr. Ye Jiangchuan says, it was a fierce competition. 10 games, is a competion of chess skills, psychology and other skills. Ju Wenjun showed us her strong ability of controlling; she was leading all the time. Tan Zhongyi never gave up, she always fought hard. Anyway, Congratulations to Ju Wenjun. Apart from that, he understands the stress, but it is a big honour to participate in this event. Hope that the two girls can keep working hard.

After then it was relaxed question section, When Ju Wenjun was asked, why she was never seen with make up during the mach, and never changed her dress , she usually loves to dress pretty in normal day. She said, when she does make up, she does it carefully, but was nervous during the match, so decided not to. And about the clothes, because the clothesare from the sponsor, She believes she should wear it, so she wore it. Everyday’s cloth looks the same because she has two sets. Tan Zhongyi says she loves wearing lipstick everyday.
So now, the winner of 2018 FIDE women’s world chess championship match has born. After 10 games, Ju Wenjun 5.5: 4.5 Tan Zhongyi becomes the 17th champion of FIDE women’s world chess. Also she is the 6th Chinese female chess player who reached FIDE chess champion. According to rule, she will get the winning prize, 120,000 Euros (After tax), it is approximately 900,000RMB. Tan Zhongy will get prize of 80,000 Euros (After tax).

Tomorrow we will have the closing ceremony.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is following closely the situation in FIDE

Fri, 05/18/2018 - 10:19

In a recent letter-reply to GM Kevin Spraggett, concerning the US sanctions against Kirsan Ilyumhinov, the FIDE Deputy President Mr. Georgios Makropoulos dropped a bombshell by mentioning the following:

“FIDE board members have also seen the letter FIDE received from the Ethics Commission of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), regarding the current situation in FIDE, but unfortunately the IOC have asked us to keep its content confidential so we are not allowed to publish it for now. I am afraid that if we do not solve our problems in Batumi, the IOC will have to follow its principles and this was made very clear to us during our recent meeting with them in Lausanne.”

Is the IOC membership of FIDE in danger because of Kirsan Ilyumzhinov? Let’s hope things go the right way for the sake of chess… On the issue of the next FIDE elections, Georgios Makropoulos mentioned the following:

“Allow me to predict also for this year that Kirsan’s absolutely maximum percentage of votes, if there is a second round, cannot exceed 35%”

and

“As a last note I re-assure you that, even with 3 candidates (if Short decides to help Kirsan and run), I will win the elections from the first round. And if you think that I am too optimistic, see again above my prediction for the results of 2014, ten months before the actual elections.”

You can read the full version of the very interesting letter of Georgios Makropoulos here.

Behgjet Pacolli still hasn’t decided to join Kirsan Ilyumzhinov’s ticket

Thu, 05/17/2018 - 15:16

Gazeta Express reported that Kosovo Foreign Minister Behgjet Pacolli “joins” Kirsan Ilyumzhinov’s team for the upcoming FIDE election.

But further in the article the portal cites a slightly different statement. “Of course they have proposed my name, but I did not take any decision,” Pacolli told Express, when asked whether he was proposed by FIDE or he supports current President of FIDE for another term.

Pacolli added: “I know the president of Kalmykia, I know him very well.”

Kirsan Ilyumzhinov met Behgjet Pacolli in August 2017 in Doha, presenting him as a “businessman from Albania”.

It would indeed be very unusual if the Foreign Minister of the entity with disputed status, which is receiving strong political support from the US, joins the team of the person that is on US sanctions list and promotes a fake American persona Glen Stark.

Thu, 05/17/2018 - 11:44

The 4th edition of the annual Global Chess Festival (GCF) will be held on Saturday October 13th, 2018.

This year’s festival in Budapest will take place in the breathtaking location of the Hungarian National Gallery. As in previous years, a wide range of activities will be organised, all with chess as the main theme.

“Our mission has not changed”, says Judit Polgar, who is responsible for the organisation of the Global Chess Festival. “The Global Chess Festival promotes the 1000 faces of chess all around​ the world. We aim to share the beauty of chess with 5 million people by 2025, to connect and enjoy chess-related activities on the day of the festival. The power of chess connects people.”

Over 120 countries have already joined the Chess Map, which can be viewed at the following link: http://www.globalchessfestival.com/chess-connects-us/chess-map.

The GCF aims to expand the Chess Map with more countries, events and individuals connecting to it. The GCF strongly believes that Chess is a sport, an experience, an educational method, and a special connection, a common language.

“The passion for the game is the link between generations that teaches both young and old perseverance, logical thinking and respect,” says Judit Polgar.

Since the 4th edition of the Global Chess Festival will be held in the Hungarian National Gallery, the organisers plan to emphasise the strong bond between art and chess.

The connection between chess and art, one of the main themes of the 2018 festival, have been cherished by renowned chess players and artists. Enjoy a short collection of famous quotes:

“For me art and chess are closely related, both are forms in which the self finds beauty and expression.” (Vladimir Kramnik)
“Chess is everything: Art, Science and Sport.” (Anatoly Karpov)
“I have come to the conclusion that while all artists are not chess players, all chess players are artists.” (Marcel Duchamp)
“Chess is the art which expresses the science of logic” (Mikhail Botvinnik)
