1) Introduction

My thanks to Marco R. Martini, Daniel Edelman, Laszlo Nagy, Adam Raoof,
Gerald Schendal, Andras Adorjan, Luis Santos, Chia Chee Seng, Bobby Ang
and anyone else who helped out with information on this issue.

So many events and not enough time. I have quite a bit of material for
next weeks issue. The Las Palmas hasn't quite lived up to its billing
but it is heading for a tight finish and I pridict some good things from
the last four rounds. I'm not sure about the absolute accuracy of the
round 6 (tonight) games from Las Palmas, especially the end of the
Ivanchuk-Karpov game, it might be that Karpov capture the bishop and
Ivanchuk started to give perpetual. The correct version will appear on
my www page tomorrow.

As Christmas arrives chess activity takes off and this is reflected in
an issue with events Worldwide. Hope you enjoy this issue.

2) International Tournament Las Palmas

All to play for after 6 rounds of Las Palmas

The story of the 1996 Las Palmas Chess Tournament has yet to be written.
Only Veselin Topalov is out of the running for the first prize after six
of the ten rounds. At such a high level of chess caution is always the
watchword and the weakness of the event is its length, only 10 rounds,
this leaves little room for a carefree approach.

The players were all well rested before the event and this seems to have
lead to some rustiness which is only now being shed and the last four
rounds should be very good indeed. Here are some short impressions
before the round up next week.

Kasparov started with a win against Veselin Topalov. This was a
fluctuating game with Topalov playing a quiet opening which then
exploded with apparently equal chances. He however drifted into a poor
ending and Kasparov took full advantage. If he could have found chance
to break his back rank with h3 at some point he may still have survived.


Topalov took his poor form into the second round. His opponent Kramnik
missed a win in the ending (66. Bh6+) and he mananged to draw.

Anand beat Ivanchuk in round three with a very creative sacrifice of the
exchange. It was either inspired or crazy according to Anand.

Kasparov has been very solid in the event but is clearly short of his
best form. He missed an almost certain win straight out of the opening
with 20. g4 but still had a very good position. He could not win with
the exchange against minor piece and pawn.

Topalov appeared to be all over Ivanchuk but no-one has come up with a
convincing winning line for Topalov yet. Ivanchuk defended superbly and
around the first time control obtained a completely winning position. A
superbly contested game.

Ivanchuk again was the star in round 5 when he blew Kramnik away in a
beautiful attacking game. It completely overshadowed a turgid meeting
between Karpov and Kasparov, their first in nearly three years. Karpov
is apparently underprepared for the event and has not made an aggressive
move in the entire event.

Kramnik was woken up by his loss in round 5 to win a complex tactical
battle against Anand in round 6.

4) Russian Cup 1996. Second Tournament.

The second event of the Russian Cup a Grand Prix event composed of a
series of opens (the last being in St. Petersburg) took place in Moscow
between November 28th and December 6th 1996. There were 168 players and
the games appeared on the net on the ChessAssistant site.
http://pc701-20.cs.msu.su/  The lower prizemoney reduced the level of
the event from the first one but still it attracted a strong field.
Alezei Federov won the first prize alone on 7.5 points from the nine
rounds.

5) Chess in Disneyland.

Anatoly Karpov travelled to Disneyland in France to take part in the
Disney Rapid Chess Championships. He has been involved in this rapidplay
event since its inception in 1993. In the past he has played
simultaneous games against the winners of each section in the
competition. This year his involvement was more as the patron of the
event, the winners played four of France's Olympic Champions from
Atlanta who also have an interest in chess. They were Jean-Pierre Amat
(Bronze Medal in Sharpshooting), Florian Rousseau (Gold Medal in
Cycling), Guy Tisserant (Gold Medal in Table Tennis (wheelchair)) and
Alexandre Spicq (Sculling). Karpov tried to help the Olympians with some
advice but the juniors proved too strong.

The event has an entertaining site at: http://rapidchess.disney.com/

The event had four sections Under 12 and under 14 boys (actually an open
section with at least one strong female player) and Under 12 and Under
14 boys. Etienne Bacrot was the favourite in the under-14s section
having been a previous winner on two occasions and having beaten Karpov
in a simultaneous game last year. This year the top section was marked
by heavy scoring and his loss to Dain Grigutavicius in round 3 and draw
with Marcin Dziuba in round two put him under pressure. He still
competed right to the end but gambled on trying to win with the black
pieces in the last round against the eventual winner Chinese player Ni
Hua but lost.

The winners of the sections were:

 Alexandra Kosteniuk, Russia (Girls under 12)
 Eli Vovsha, Israel (Boys under 12)
 Regina Pokorna, Slovakia (Girls under 14)
 Hua Ni, China (Boys under 14)

6) First Saturday Tournament in Budapest

International Master Attila Czebe leads the December First Saturday IM
Tournament after nine of the eleven rounds. Rafael Rodriguez's chances
of getting an IM norm were severely dented after his loss in round 9
(see the games section). The event is organised by Laszlo Nagy who can
be contacted via E-Mail  <100263.1700@CompuServe.COM> and who now has a
www page
http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/chess_first_saturday_hu/ Final
results should be available on my www page later in the week.

American player Daniel Edelman had a fascinating first round struggle,
he annotates it below, my thanks to him:

7) Chess in Edinburgh

Adam Raoof is the organiser of two events in Edinburgh. The 14th-19th of
December will see the Rowson-Arkell 5000 pound challenge match. The
first game (a Rowson win) is in the games section and there will
probably be updates on my page during the week. The second event is the
1st Caledonian Masters a five day 10 player all play all. Again more
next week.

Commonwealth Championships

Mithrakanth of India won the Commonwealth Championships in Calcutta with
7.5/10 above Gokhale, Sriram, Praven Thipsay and McNab on 7.0. There was
an IM norm for 17 year old Vijaylaxmi who won the women's title. More
news if I get it.

9) 2nd International Tournament in Loures

Luis Santos reports:

The Tournaments in Loures are the result of a ten year plan of chess
development in Loures (PDX plan). Loures is close to Lisbon and has
400,000 inhabitants. Since 1986 there has been a chess training
programme in schools, each year 3000 children have chess lessons and
2000 play in tournaments concluding in a finals section. Every year
around 400 become members of one of the 15 chess clubs in Loures (there
were no chess clubs in 1986) and two are in the first division of the
national league and one in the second. Most of the clubs have chess
trainers (there were 17 trainers in 1996). In 1993 a training academy
was started, most of the trainers were not from Loures, this is now
different with many of the trainers being between 20 and 24 from Loures
and the first products of the chess scheme. Some of the players are
trying to get international master norms and the events are called
MESTRE-JOVEM (young masters)

Wednesday 11 December saw the start of the 2nd Loures International a
category 2 event. There are some differences with the 1st Loures event.
This time, there are two under 18 players (Paulo Dias and Josi Andrade)
and altogether six good young Loures players (the others are Carlos P.
Santos, Alexandre Quadrio, Artur Gaspar and Paulo Pinho). Again the main
atraction is GM Kevin Spraggett who has lived in Portugal (he is married
to the Portuguese player Aida Ferreira) since 1987.

There is daily news on Luis Santos's site, he is the arbiter of the
event. http://www.ip.pt/~ip001018/

Something about Rainbow Chess by GM Andras Adorjan

The officers behind the ranks of 'traditional' Black and White pawns have
their own colours:

KINGS ARE RED, QUEENS ARE PURPLE, BISHOPS ARE BLUE,KNIGHTS ARE YELLOW,
and ROOKS ARE GREEN.

And, as the 'Black' pieces are the DARKER SHADES of the 'White' ones,
there can be no problem with telling them apart! You can easily get
accustomed to the 'orgy' of colours, which is really strange at first
sight.

According to inventor Pal Suvada (1912-1995), his idea, which was
patented in the USA more than 30 years ago, can have numerous advantages
(his hypotheses are based on the result of earlier research):

- the human eye perceives and stores colours much quicker than any form or
sign;

- therefore, quite a bit of precious thinking time can be saved for real
professional problems;

- as the 'private' colours of pieces are a useful addition to the ways of
identilication we have known so far, we can presume that the number of
blunders and grave errors would go down, too;

- it is especially beginners (mostly children) who learn much more easily
and eagerly with the help of colours;

- it would make our game far more popular, first of all by facilitating the
broadcasting of chess on TV;

- the appearance of the colours of the rainbow on the chessboard can also
increase the aesthetic pleasure of the spectators.

Unlike other reform attempts, Rainbow Chess does not change anything
apart from adding new colours: the startposition, the way the pieces
move, the size of the board and all the other archaic conventions of the
game remain the same!

The idea - like the Sleeping Beauty - awoke from its 30 years of sleep
on 22 July, 1994, when the world premier took place in Budapest,
Hungary, as a part of Bela Papp Memorial. lt was a rapid subject
toumament. It was a lot of fun, too...  So the ball started to roll...
Since that we've organized a large number of 'speedy' tournaments from
30' down to 5' each.

Only this year 5 events took place (so far), among them the First
Hungarian Speedy Rainbow Chess Ch. (20' each, 112 participants) and the
I.Rainbow Blitz Championship of Budapest (10' each, 34 participants,
including 8(!) GM-s led by Peter Leko, the youngest ever GM in chess
history and 9 IM-s, probably the strongest of all time competition of
this kind in Hungary).

I took part in all of these tournaments both as organizer and player. In
addition I've played 9 out of 11 games by using my Rainbow Chess set as
a demonstration board in the (traditional) Hungarian Championship in '95
January and many more in Team Ch. Matches in 95/96. My two years'
personal experience by analysing and playing with Rainbow Chess
completely confirms of Mr.Suvada's hypothesis.
