1)  Introduction

My thanks to Ian Rogers, Jeroen van den Berg, Christophe Bouton, Guil Russek, (Mexico City)
Manuel Lopez , Sklavounos Panagiotis, Graziano Ottolini, Graziano Ottolini, Rod McShane,
Marco R. Martini, Planet Chess, TASC, and Gerhard Hund.

One of the quietest weeks of international chess I have known but still some interesting
games and results in this weeks issue. Hope you enjoy this issue.


2) Timman against Sokolov match for the Dutch Championship

Earlier in the year Ivan Sokolov and Jan Timman shared first place in
the Dutch Championships.  The playoff started today and saw a
regrettable return to bad form for Timman. He still plays very
uncompromising chess but has a tendency to walk into massive tactical
blows. This is what occurred today. Match is best of four games.

The match can be followed live on Dutch Teletext Pages 840, 841, 842 and
843. On the 11, 12, 14 and 15 November the games will be played between
13:00 and 20:00 hours. This service is available on the internet. check

 3) Viktor Korchnoi plays Gilberto Hernandez in Mexico

Viktor Korchnoi continues his globetrotting by travelling to Mexico to
play Gilberto Hernandez. Hernandez is becoming a very familiar figure
throughout the World as he plays very regularly. The match is being
played in Merida, Yucatan Mexico and I thank Guil Russek, (Mexico City)
and Manuel Lopez for sending the games and the news. The match is over 8
games and is designed to give Mexico's brightest star some tough
opposition on home soil. Gilberto is 2560 and 25 years  old and the
event one of the most important in recent Mexican chess.

Guil Russek reports that the venue, Merida, is the Capital of the
Yucatan region which is in the South of Mexico. The place is very
beautiful and the region is the legendary home of the  Mayan sites of
Chichen Itza and Uxmal.  Organiser Alejandro Preve C Castro and his team
have been responsible for the popularity of chess in the region. Each
year there is a "Carlos Torre In Memorium" open Chess tournament in the
honour of the best chess player in Mexico's history.

This year the event  runs from December 14th - 20th.

4) The Russian Cup by Christophe Bouton.

The first leg of the Russian Cup finished Saturday  November 9th, in St
Petersburg. More than 30 GM  competed in this 9 round Swiss open. No
Western GM was  playing. I witnessed only finish master Raaste as a
foreigner. The general level of this tournament was  very high (number
100 out 116 participants was rated  2300 or something).  Five more
tournaments (see list above) are scheduled  but during the closing
ceremony, international arbiter  and official trainer of the Russian
team Boris  Pastovsky, announced 4 more tournaments (Smolensk,  Kstova
and Novgorod in June in the same time as Lord  Novgorod the Great
tournament + an other town not  decided yet). Sochi should host in
September a closed  tournament with the first players of this Russian
Cup  - Grand Prix would be more precise -  though the exact  rules of
this Russian Cup have not been published by  Russian Chess Federation
and A. Makarov, the main  organiser.

6) Corsico FIDE Open Graziano Ottolini

Graziano Ottolini  sends news of a FIDE open held in Corsico Milan
October 5th-13th. This 18 player open was won by Marco Sbarra. The games
were sent to him by Walter Ravagnati. There are only 6 rounds of games
sent and I append the results below. I'm unsure whether the event was 6
or 9 rounds as I don't  have a table but Marco Sbarra from Savona did
win the event.

9) Fischer News

Bobby Fischer still exerts a fascination to the press that no other
chess player has ever matched. The Express on Sunday 20th October
published an article about Bobby Fischer in Hungary. Its unclear when
the article was actually written but it was probably sometime this year.
It shows Fischer waiting for a bus and says that he is now leading a
fairly anonymous life in Budapest.

Janos Rigo says:

"His life is quite normal. He chose to live in Budapest because it is a
beautiful city. Its is cheap, there are a lot of spas which he loves,
and the chess activity is highly developed. He goes to the movies
sometimes or goes out for dinner with friends. He is lonely and wishes
he could get married and have a family."

The story talks over some of Fischer's recent career and includes an
interview with Zita Raiczanyi the young woman who is credited with
bringing him back for the 1992 rematch. She says that he proposed to him
but she said no.

The obligatory "Other Mad Chess Players" section but in fact most of the
 stories are only half correct and really not that bad. The portrait
portrays Fischer as more sad than mad.

The second Fischer story is one that was not mentioned during the
Olympiad. In the bulletin for the tenth round there was a letter
published in support of Kirsan Iljumzhinov supposedly signed by Fischer
and Lilienthal. I don't think there is any doubt it is a forgery and
wonder about the motives of those who circulated it and got it published
in the bulletin.

Ian Rogers writes on Compuserve.

"Here is the text of the letter supposedly written by Fischer, exactly
as published in Yerevan Olympiad Bulletin 10.

To the delegates of the General Assembly of FIDE Ladies and Gentlemen,
Our long stay in the chess world, a great life experience and finally
our modest contribution to the development of the chess art, let us hope
that the representative of World Chess Federation, being present at the
FIDE Congress in Yerevan, will be kind enough to follow us for a while.

We witnessed all the chess history, beginning from the thirties, as well
as the whole history of FIDE. Like in real life there were periods of
ebbs and tides, rises and falls.

Alongside with a bunch of wonderful chess players and remarkable
organizers being among the FIDE leaders, there were some people,
grudging, vain and random.

The trouble of the latest years of this organization was not only that
certain players have had some disagreements (it used to happen before)
but rather it was caused by the fact that FIDE did not manage to become
an unbiased judge that would treat everyone with respect and strongly
defend its own decisions, rules and regulations.

Life changes rapidly and that, of course, is reflected in chess. Staying
behind the realities FIDE has changed too slowly, and alas, those were
right who have recently criticized it.'

But a year ago at the very critical moment when our organisation was at
the edge of collapse, a young leader of one of the Russian republics and
also a well-known businessman came to be President. His first steps made
could be assumed quite extraordinary and some of them, even disputable.
However, the main point came into view: FIDE survived, it came to be
outspoken, new real sponsors offered their support. What the most
important is that its President Kirsan Iljumzhinov has appeared to be a
Man of his word: step by step he fulfilled his promises given no matter
how unreal they seemed to most of us. We would like to remind you of the
World Championship match Karpov-Kamsky, which was delayed nearly for a
year by the former administration, as well as of the support given to
the chess veterans, a complete program for the support of children's
movement in the world, also the project for the holding a new  World

We admit that Iljumzhinov's ideas are not clear enough and contain some
debatable points, However, innovative and practical financial
approaches, business and communication abilities with the people with
any rank are unquestionable.

Not everybody comprehend and accept it. But for the sake of chess and
its future we appeal to your sober estimation of the present situation
in FIDE. And according to it the President duties can be carried out
only by Kirsan Iljumzhinov. The man who not only cares for chess but
also understands its problems, as well as the ones of the chess
organizations and individual players; a broad-minded person who is able
to support them financially and improve its reputation.

That is the reason we appeal to the delegates to elect Kirsan
Iljumzhinov, the man of the 21st century, as FIDE president, by making
amendments in the FIDE regulations that will satisfy modern life
