1) Introduction

My thanks to Ian Rogers, Chiacs, Sinisa Joksic, TASC, Jon Speelman,
Yvette Negel, Marco R. Martini, Luis Santos, Rune Djurhuus, Jason Luchan
and to Paul Onstad whose Normal.exe program has proved a new favourite
program of mine for converting those games not in Standard PGN notation.

This has been a good week, lots of strong chess throughout the World and
the Russian Chess championships to look forward to. I will be  covering
the Owen's Corning Tournament in Wrexham Wales on my www page with the
games and results of the last few rounds. Just too late for inclusion in
this issue.

The strong event of the week has been the Fontys Tournament in Tilburg.
If last week I was a little down on the games played in rounds 3 and 4
things picked up this week and we should be in for a terrific finish.

Sinisa Joksic who travelled to the Elista Olympiad has come up with the
missing round 6 games from the Women's Olympiad presented in this issue.

Garry Kasparov played a simultaneous in Isreal early this week, he is
to be in London on Friday.

Plenty to enjoy. Hope you enjoy this issue


2) Fontys International Tournament in Tilburg

The Fontys International Tournament in Tilburg produced an extremely
enjoyable weeks play to make up for some rather dull chess in rounds 3
and 4. If the story of the tournament was Shirov's energetic play in the
firsts 6 rounds then the week ended with Gelfand and Van Wely taking the
honours. With 8 of the 11 rounds completed a strong finish from almost
any of the players in the top half could give them the tournament.

Boris Gelfand, born in 1968 was one of the first of the new generation
to emerge.  Extremely hard working, he is known for his good preparation
and fine all round technical skill rather than sparkling brilliance.
This does not mean that his play lacks sharpness and he always strikes
me as a modern day Portisch (not that  Portisch is quite finished yet,
see elsewhere in this issue.) His form dipped after  losing to Karpov in
the FIDE Candidates semi-finals but his form has gradually returned
since a tough VSB tournament earlier in the year.

He is certainly a well respected Grandmaster, there are some doubts as
to his temperement, he has for instance had at least two winning
positions against Kasparov but failed to convert them but players know
not to take undue  risks against him. Here he started with a solid draw
with Black against Piket followed by a win against Adams who took too
many risks taking material on the Queenside. He seems quite happy to use
the win with white draw with Black method and drew comfortably with
Black against Leko and Lautier but was not very happy allowing a three
fold repetition against Almasi in round 4.  His fine technique allowed
him to make the most of a superor position against Emil Sutovskij and
not take any nonsense from Karpov who tried hard to win a position that
was really close on level. His victory against Shirov was marked first
by calm positional pressure and then after Shirov's disasterous 26. Bxf4
 giving up the dark squares in his position he unerringly brought the
point home.

In round 9 Gelfand and Van Wely drew, and a close finish is now on the

Loek Van Wely has an image problem. My abiding image of him is walking
round in a tracksuit and as being just one of many such people on the
International Open Circuit. This is now an outdated image. Along with
Spain, The Netherlands is a  good place to be an improving young
Grandmaster due to the number of strong international  events held every
year.. Loek Van Wely has been in the shadow of Jan Timman and Jeroen
Piket but due to the poor form of  these players recently Loek is
actually the highest rated player. He worked as one of Gata Kamsky's
seconds in Elista (he got into terrible trouble as he was signed for the
Dutch Championships at the same time and there was talk of him being
banned from certain events) and this was an invaluable part of his chess
education. His play here, apart from one disaster against Emil Sutovskij
 has been classy. Perhaps soon he will be recognised as the best Dutch
player by right rather than by default. His best win was against Karpov
which was  a calm realisation of a nice positional edge, it says much
for him that this followed his disaster against Sutovskij, He followed
this with a sharp tactical battle against Shirov where he took on the
Latvian at his own game and won.

Shirov has had an up and down tournament. His fine play up to round 6
was ruined by week moments in rounds 7 and 8. He may have got his tournament
back on track with his victory over Judit Polgar in round 9.

Adams, Piket and Leko have all had very solid tournaments. The same cannot
be said of Anatoly Karpov who has been one of the major talking points of
the event so far. Only one win but two losses represents a disaster for
him. He is now over 40 and certainly greats of the past like Keres also
became very inconsistant after the age of 40. Keres in fact was at various
points almost the best player in the World, at other moments he was less
good so it isn't time to rule out Karpov having big results in the future.
His problem has been that he hasn't won much with white and has leaked with
Black. Typical of his frustration was drawing against Shirov when he missed
several better options to put his opponent under pressure. His passive position
against Van Wely came from an opening he usually plays very well.

Judit Polgar is reported to be very tired after too much chess recently.
Her performance at the Olympiad and here will cost her a lot of ELO
points.  This is the first event I've seen her play become dispirited
in. Having said that when you are trying to get into form horrible
things can happen. She ploughed down the same variation of the Sicilian
that a number of people have struggled with against Shirov , tried an
improvement at move 10 and was just anihilated.

There has been coverage at my site and at

where Yvette Nagel is in Tilburg for Inside Chess Online Magazine and also where TASC who are providing the
electronic demonstration boards have covered the event.

4) Olympiad Corrections

Sinisa Joksic sends the games from round 6 of the women's Olympiad.

As to the FIDE elections  I am still absorbing various reports including
that of Steven Doyle. Two points of interest, he voted for Sunye Neto
not for the Kirsan ticket. He also says that to him it was clear that
the Sunye Neto ticket was going to lost right from the start.

With such a large number of games there were bound to be corrections
from the Olympiad. I have been sent some corrections, especially by Rune
Djurhuus and I have put them in the games section. Also I have noticed a
couple of instances of in which I haven't been consistant in naming the

Jason Luchan points out that the games Romeril-Taleb & Ady-Bazile are
identical (rd 2).  In the bulletin the Romeril-Taleb game was a win for
Taleb but with no gamescore so that game should be deleted from the
database and the Ady-Bazile is correct.

5) Spanish Team Championships.

The Spanish Team Championships have become very strong in recent years.
The finals took place over a period of a week starting around the 5th of
October. The start of the event was just prior to the  Tilburg
tournament and this allowed Karpov to play the early rounds. He played
only four games with a score of 3/4. When he left he was replaced by
Vaisser who put in a shocker ruining his teams chances of gaining the
title. My thanks to Ian Rogers for the news some games and to Jon
Speelman for the games from all sections. Ian Rogers comments that some
of the games from the first round were incomplete in the bulletin so it
might be that some of the games I got from Jon are not fully correct.

Final scores:

1.Unio Gracienca D'Escacs  21 (Match Points) (24 Game Points);
2.Club Barcino 18 (22);
3.Caja Insular de Ahorros 18 (20.5);
4.Villa De Teror 13 (20.5);
5.C.A. Cambre 12 (20);
6.R. Circulo de Labradores  12 (18.5);
7.Club Marcote 11 (18.5);
8.C.A. Vulca 10 (16.5);
9.S. Miralbueno El Olivar 10 (16);
10.C.A. Sta Margarita-Alcudia 0 (3.5).

The bottom two teams were relegated. Vulca (Pia Cramling, Bellon,
O.Rodriguez) were the defending champions. However they would have been
relegated had not El Olivar lost their very last game so that Vulca
survived on tiebreak. Graciena had a pre-arranged 2-2 with Barcino in
the final round - a strange decision by Barcino, led by Spraggett, since
second place was virtually meaningless. The decisive match was when
Gracienca (Illescas, Magem) beat Caja Insular (Vaisser, Izeta) 4-0.
Villa de Teror (Speelman) started well but faded dramatically. The other
clubs, Cambre (Strikovic), Labradores (Campora) and Marcote (Gulko) were
happy just to avoid relegation.

6) "Sahmatik" tournament in Stara Pazova by Sinisa Joksic

Immediately after Olympiad "Sahmatik",  a Chess club from Belgrade
organised a Category 8 tournament (2436) in Stara Pazova. This is a
small town 20km. from Belgrade. The playing room and conditions were
very good.

My only remark is that they did not produce a Bulletin. A few years ago,
 according to FIDE rules, organisers were obliged to publishing daily
bulletin or to collect all the games and send them to the FIDE offices
with the arbiter's report at the end of tournament. (That was for
tournaments with GM norms available 7th. cat. and above)

I don't know who in FIDE decided to "forget" this rule.

There have been a few events recently which have underlined the need for
this rule.

Last year's event in Strumca Macedonia where Azmaiparashvili and Kutirov
 made incredible results. (I have not found any chess player who trusts
this result.) [See TWIC99 for the games]

Then a non-played tournament in Belgrade, were Levin and Ulmanskaya
"made" GM  titles, which FIDE Congress annuled after six months and took
from them the title they had been awarded, and so on.

FIDE has to order to all organisers to send them all the games from
tournament, printed or in file. Announcing the final standings of the
tournament in the "FIDE Forum" is not enough. First of all it's not
available to all chessplayers.

In the case that organisers don't send the games the tournament should not
be calculated for rating.

[I agree with much of this, but the thought only now occurs to me. that
a player might persuade the organiser not to submit the result of an
event if it went badly! In the general run of things a no games no
rating would at least tax the imagination of anyone minded to cheat.
However the buying and selling of games has, according to one
international player I spoke to recently, become rife, especially in
large international opens and in certain regular tournaments in Eastern
Europe. 1000-2000 pounds per GM norm is the going rate and you might not
even have to be in the country in which the event is supposed to have
taken place in. Some regualr GM norm events are known to be  clean,
First Saturday has this reputation, others not but I don't have any
direct evidence to point the finger directly. Mark C]

7) XII World Youth Chess Festival

Menorca in the Balearic Islands is the venue of the World Youth Chess
Festival between 20th October and the 3rd November 1996. This FIDE event
is endorsed by the United Nations and is an annual event. The
competition has under 10,12,14,16 and 18 sections for both boys and
girls. It will produce 10  Champions altogether. The events are 11 round
Swiss events.

8) Category 2 in Loures Portugal.

9) Kasparov visits Israel

Gary Kasparov visited Israel this week. There for the start of the
Israeli chess league he also gave a simulaneous exhibition. He last gave
such an exhibition there almost exactly two years ago where he scored:

Kasparov vs. Figure-heads 18+ 1= Israeli Youth team: 11+ 4= (Sutovsky
who is currently  playing in Tilburg was one of those getting a draw.)

Kasparov's only draw in his exhibition against the figureheads last time
was against Anatoli Scheransky. This time Scheransky went one better by
winning this time. The famous former Soviet dissident passed  many of
his hours in detainment by playing over chess games in his mind. He is
now a Trade Minister in  the Israeli Government but seems to have lost
little of his skill for the game. Kasparov would have been forwarned as
to his strength having played him before and this was an excellent
results by any standards.

Kasparov's final result was +18 =4 -3

Scheransky in an interview with Israeli Television showed a great sense
of humour. He was asked  whether the victory against Kasparov would help
his political career.

"Oh sure. It could be another 200,000 voters will want to vote for me.''
