1)  Introduction

My thanks to Nasser Abbasi, Gerald Schendel, Otto Borik, City of
Dortmund www server, Eric van der Schilden, Bobby Ang, Adolivio
Capece, Sinisa Joksic, John Henderson, Arvind Aaron, Ian Rogers,
Danny Mozes and ChessTreasure. But a special vote of thanks must go
to Christophe Bouton who has been in Kalmykia for the entire
Kamsky-Karpov match and who has been responsible for the moves
reaching the internet so quickly and also for the stories he has
sent (including the material in the Agreement for re-unification
match between Karpov and Kasparov? section)

This is a week where, in spite of a World Championship match
finishing and a Category 18 Tournament finshes it is chess politics
that dominate.

First Die Schachwoche revealed that Jaime Sunye-Neto would be
supported in his quest to be the next FIDE President and then we
had the fall-out at the end of the Karpov-Kamsky match. It seems
that there are moves afoot to fund a reunification match in 1997
between Kasparov and Karpov. Whilst at first site it seems good
news, the announcement in detail is not such good news. The
re-unification match will be outside FIDE and the PCA, a carve up
that looks set to exclude all other players rights many of whom are
already looking like legitimate challengers.

The FIDE President want to run his knockout Championships at the
end of the year, there seems no plan to reinstate the World
Championships Cycle. It looks like Kirsan Ilyumzhinov plans to
stand again, are we looking at the end of the World Championships
as even pretending to be a method of establishing the best player?

Andrei Makarov seems to be placing himself in a position where he
can't lose. It seems at the moment he both supports Kirsan
Ilyumzhinov and is going to be on Jaime Sunye-Neto's ticket aswell.
Not good news for those who have expressed the view that Makarov's
presence on a ticket is a serious reason not to vote for that

A reminder to us all about the nature of International
organisations comes from The Sunday Times. Under the bye-line "Time
to topple the Dictator" it looks in detail at the record of Dr.
Primo Nebiolo. Much of the politics looked quite similar to that of
FIDE. The difference? When Nebiolo took power there was $100,000 in
the Bank now the organisation deals in billions. It seems that
whilst he has been virtually caught red-handed fixing the vote for
sportman of the year and was heavily implicated in the fixing of a
World Championships event he can survive anything whilst the money
is coming in. The question may be in the next FIDE elections "Money
or Chess?" it will be interesting to see what the answer will be.

I hope you enjoy this issue.


2)  Karpov retains the  FIDE World Chess Championship Title

Karpov retained the title he won against Timman in 1993 by beating
Kamsky 10.5-7.5 in Elista Kalmykia.

My thanks to Christophe Bouton for keeping the World informed about
the match. He sends the following post-match comments which
appeared in Izvestia Kalmykia July 13th 1996.


"This match was difficult for me the fight was hard; all the games
were hard-fought up to the end, 6-8 hours and more. I had some
problems and I had to make great efforts to win the match. "

"When the situation became hopeless for Kamsky, he began to play
without any pressure. I had an unpleasant feeling to finish this
match quicker; That's why I began to play not very well. "

Q: Atmosphere of the match?

"Very good conditions, just nice, here they gave us some of the
best conditions I have ever had in World championship matches. I'd
like to thank Kirsan Nikolaievich and the organisers. "

"I did not sleep last night (i.e before resumption of game 18/ChB);
we had a very difficult analysis of the 18th game; the position was
very difficult and I think Gata's team did not sleep either.
Playing and not sleeping was hard indeed."

Q: Was your victory as fair result? A: I played better, what should
I say?

Q: What would you wish to your young challenger? A: He showed
amazing fighting qualities; he could bear difficult situations
without cracking; he proved that he deserved to be a challenger


P.S Karpov and Kamsky gave a press conference at 15:00 on July
13th; it lasted one hour or so. Nothing special was said; Kamsky
refused to answer any questions, did not smile as usual but he took
part nevertheless to the closing ceremony that followed (concerts,
dancings etc.)

A party in the steppe was scheduled; it lasted late in the night
(up to 3 am). Karpov came with the delegation along with Kirsan
Ilyumzhinov and Makarov; nobody of the Kamsky delegation took part.
This party in the middle of nowhere at one hour's bus of downtown
Elista was completly unreal. But it was nice and Karpov,
organisers, journalists, arbiters, translators had fun.


Karpov versus Kamsky

Here are my impressions of the Karpov-Kamsky match. I will leave
the detailed impressions to professional writers but here I try to
plot the course of the match and give some indication as to where I
hope more detailed analysis will be useful.

General Impressions

The match was extremely competitive with Kamsky spoiling his
chances by losing games four and six with the white pieces and a
dreadful choice of opening in game 7.

There were few important novelties in the match, possibly Karpov's
8. ...Qh4 was the most important. In general the match was more
about both players general form and the ability to play without
error in a series of very long games. In essence this is the style
of both players although the style they actually conduct their
games is different. There were already worrying signs for Kamsky in
Dos Hermanas before this event that he was capable of losing the
thread of positions, this was the single greatest problem he
encountered in this match.

I'm aware that the comments below say little about Karpov so I will
make some comments here. The Karpov of the 1990's gains his
successes through a fine understanding of positional play and the
exploitation of tiny edges. He has, especially with black a small
but extremely precise opening repertoire. The Caro-Kann with Black
against 1. e4 and the Nimzo-Indian/Queen's Indian against 1. d4. On
the one hand this makes him quite easy to prepare for as you know
that this is what he is going to play, on the other hand his
understanding of these positions is very good. The theory before
the match was that Kamsky would only have to break one of these
defences (the Caro-Kann was looking the most likely) and he would
be successful. These weapons are in fact very difficult to crack
and there is an element of provocation in them that means that
Karpov can use them to win against players, especially those who
become over-ambitious.

In the 1990's there has been the rise of a new and exceptionally
talented generation of chess players. They are ambitious and this
has to some extent helped Karpov. He knows that they are going to
play to win, whereas before many of his opponents were trying only
to draw against him. This has helped him to maintain his World
number 2 ELO ranking.

Having cleared this match out of the way then hopefully we can see
Karpov play in events with Kasparov and the next seven or eight
players in the World. According to Reuter's Karpov will take on
Kasparov next year (see elsewhere in this issue).

Gata Kamsky will I think look back with disappointment to this
match. He played very well in patches but he really did give points
away. There is a balance between seeking the full point and not
risking the loss. Games four and six were definite own goals and
the opening in game seven looked an especially lousy choice.

Although known for an extremely wide opening repertoire my
impression is that it is not sufficiently deep in the variations he
does play and lacks the power of penetration against a well
prepared opponent like Karpov. His specific understanding of the
middlegames that come out of his opening choices was not as good as
Karpov's. His general understanding of the game seems very strong
and his ability to keep fighting to the very end was enhanced by
this match.

In general my feeling is that both players have been somewhat
disadvantaged over the last year and a half by not playing in the
same events as Kasparov, Topalov, Anand, Ivanchuk and Kramnik.
There have been a number of events that these players have all
competed in and these have lead to a great improvement in the play
the competitors as a whole. Its time to see all the best players
compete together again.

1)   6/6/96 - Karpov, Anatoly - Kamsky, Gata     1-0   56   Gruenfeld Russian Var.

Karpov springs an early surprise. Kamsky is known for playing the
Gruenfeld Defence but Karpov's choice of the Russian variation
wouldn't have been expected.

12 ... b5 is a fairly obscure choice and 16. Qd3 is new.

The battleground is typical for the match as a whole. Kamsky played
dynamic positions where he had to prove positional weaknesses were
made up for by his activity. Karpov is regarded at his strongest in
attacking fixed weaknesses, here after defusing Kamsky's play he
gradually took advantage of his poor pawn structure.

Question for post match analysis. Was Kamsky's opening choice bad
or did the real inaccuracy come later?

2)   8/6/96 - Kamsky, Gata    - Karpov, Anatoly  1-0   65   Caro Kann Exchange Var.

The start of the Caro-Kann wars in this match. Suddenly extremely
popular at the top level again forming the mainstay of many players

Although this game contained a good example of Kamsky's grinding
technique it was a very early Karpov blunder that set up the win.
17. ...Qa5 either overlooked or misassessed the power of d5
combined with an attack on the King.

Questions for post match analysis. Karpov improved with 12. ...Qb6
in game 4 and won. Was 12. ...Bd7 poor in this game? Could Karpov
have saved the inferior ending?

3)  10/6/96 - Karpov, Anatoly - Kamsky, Gata     1/2   49   Queen's Indian

Kamsky plays the Queen's Indian for the first time in the match.
His method of playing this system with b5 was a major plank in
defending against 1. d4 Karpov deferred battle against this
variation until later getting a small edge which was never enough
to win.

Question for post match analysis. Was this a safe draw for Kamsky
or did Karpov have better?

4)  12/6/96 - Kamsky, Gata    - Karpov, Anatoly  0-1   45   Caro Kann Exchange Var.

Karpov's improvement over his disaster in game one. Kamsky switched
to the main line Caro-Kann after this. The first of three losses
with the white pieces that cost Kamsky his chances in this match.

The isolated pawn is a double edged weapon, dynamics verses a
potential fixed weakness. Kamsky failed to play sharply enough in
the opening and continued to play for an advantage when there was
none. Larry Christiensen's suggestion of 14. Ne5 is one suggestion
for mixing the game up early. Otherwise Kamsky should have been
concentrating in drawing after getting no opening advantage. 15.
Nxf6 is also quite poor. Karpov played a fine game and when he took
over Kamsky had no chance, he did miss 40. ...Qd5 which would have
terminated Kamsky more quickly however.

Questions for post match analysis. The assessment of 14. Ne5 and
the point where Kamsky was finally lost.

5)  14/6/96 - Karpov, Anatoly - Kamsky, Gata     1/2   23   Gruenfeld Russian Var.

A repeat of the Russian variation but Kamsky tries an extremely
risky idea of David Bronstein's. Karpov at first tries to refute
Kamsky, but in the face of a dangerous counter-attack he offers
Kamsky the opportunity to repeat the position which he takes.

Questions for post match analysis. Was Kamsky's opening sound?
Should Kamsky have played on in the final position?

6)  16/6/96 - Kamsky, Gata    - Karpov, Anatoly  0-1   29   Petroff Defence.

Reaching into quite an old kit-bag of tricks Karpov plays the
Petroff Defence. The result is a fine win for him. Karpov played 8.
...Qh4 which seems to be a novelty. As with game 4 Karpov equalised
fairly early and Kamsky didn't seem to know what he was trying to
achieve. A series of aimless moves allowed Karpov a very simple

Questions for post match analysis. Verdict on 8. ...Qh4, and
improvements on Kamsky's lacklustre middlegame play. Kamsky had to
decide to draw this game and head for that, what were the best

7)  18/6/96 - Karpov, Anatoly - Kamsky, Gata     1-0   71   Kings Indian Classical Var.

According to John Federowicz it was Rustam Kamsky's choice that
Gata should play the King's Indian Defence. Whoever made the choice
it was a lousy call, you have to be an absolute specialist to play
the KID against Karpov and even Kasparov is struggling to make this
opening breath at the moment.

Kamsky was always struggling in this game but 51. ... Rg8xg7 has
been suggested in a few quarters as being a saving try. Karpov
played this game in his own inimitable style but you should not
play into his hands like this, he enjoys these positions.

Questions for post match analysis.  Theoretical status of this
variation of the King's Indian and the turning points of the game.

8)  20/6/96 - Kamsky, Gata    - Karpov, Anatoly  1/2   61   Caro Kann Main line.

Kamsky switches to the Caro-Kann main line. This time he gets a
small advantage in a major pieces ending. Karpov has an isolated
d-pawn but Kamsky doesn't managed to find a second weakness in
Karpov's position. The position looked unpleasant without actually
getting really bad.

Questions for post match analysis. Could Kamsky have made more of
his minute advantage or was this just fine equalising play from

9)  22/6/96 - Karpov, Anatoly - Kamsky, Gata     1-0   41   Gruenfeld Russian Var.

Kamsky got away with a very risky variation in game 5 and here is
Mr Karpov back again. Karpov is the first player to vary playing
the old fashioned 10. Be3. Kamsky was obviously ready for this
playing 10. ...c5 very quickly but this was very probably a near
decisive error. Perhaps Kamsky was heading for the Rook and Bishop
versus Queen ending but Karpov's handling of the entire position
was very fine.

Questions for post match analysis. Once again the assessment of the
opening and the point at which Karpov was definitely winning are
the questions here.

10  24/6/96 - Kamsky, Gata    - Karpov, Anatoly  1-0   59   Queens Indian Petrosian

Prior to the match many people felt that the way to win was to take
on Karpov's Caro-Kann. Yet again it actually proved to be a winning
weapon in Karpov's hands. Kamsky switches to 1. d4 for the first
time and decides to take on another Karpov mainstay the Queen's

Karpov in taking a four point lead after nine must have believed
that he had broken Kamsky but this game was his finest of the
match. Probably Karpov had missed 27. Nh7 in his calculations but
this was a very fine attacking performance from Kamsky.

Question for post match analysis. Point at which Karpov got into trouble.

11) 26/6/96 - Karpov, Anatoly - Kamsky, Gata     1/2   66   Semi-Slav

Karpov played a quite simple system against the Semi-Slav but got a
nagging initiative. At one stage it looked like he might win as his
careful probing exposed weaknesses. Kamsky sealed a well calculated
move and the draw was inevitable.

Questions for post match analysis. Did Karpov miss a win? Did
Kamsky have better ways of playing the middlegame?

12) 28/6/96 - Kamsky, Gata    - Karpov, Anatoly  1/2   54   Caro Kann Main line.

One last hoorah for the Caro Kann. Kamsky tries 14. Rhe1. Once
again after achieving nothing appreciable Kamsky started to drift
and Karpov took the initiative to the point that it looked like he
might win. Kamsky has clearly read some good Rook and Pawn ending
books however and he held the draw relatively comfortably.

Karpov played what seemed to be a provocative opening but its a
position he seems to understand very well. Its a position where the
theory is quite long and certainly Kamsky's flank attack 15. g4 was
part of both sides preparation. Karpov showed quite convincingly
that he understood the position better. Kamsky might have a very
wide opening repertoire but his understanding of specific
variations needs improving.

Questions for post match analysis. The theoretical status of the
opening variation after this game and any possible improvements for
Karpov that might have allowed him to win a very promising

13) 30/6/96 - Karpov, Anatoly - Kamsky, Gata     1/2   90   Queen's Indian

The players repeat game 3 where Kamsky drew quite comfortably.
Karpov comes armed with a new idea and plays 13. Bb2. The game
again was a clash of chess ideologies. Karpov playing for fixed
long term weaknesses and Kamsky playing more dynamically. Just
after the first time control it looked very promising for Karpov.
Karpov's could have quietly strenthened his position with 43. h4
but decided it was time for decisive action with 43. e6. It was
probably based on a miscalculation. 47. ...g5! draws for Black but
Karpov wasn't thinking clearly and his 49. Kg3? is actually nearly

This was the last crisis point in the match. If Kamsky had
succeeded in winning this game the pressure would have been right
back on Karpov. White has two bishops but he is a pawn down and it
looks like there is at least one to follow. If a win can be
established here than Kamsky missed a big chance. The adjourned
position looked lost but Karpov's defence was both tough and well

Questions for post match analysis. This game was a hard, but not
faultless game with three or four turning points, it needs a lot of

14) 02/7/96 - Kamsky, Gata    - Karpov, Anatoly  0-1   61   Nimzo-Indian Defence.

Having come so close to getting back into the match Kamsky then
played his worst game of the match. His fault of losing the thread
of the game when he has no advantage with white was at its worst in
this game. He may have had a reasonable position but it ran
downhill very quickly. One can't help feeling that if he had won
game 13, or even drawn it without getting his later chances he
would not have played as badly as this.

Questions for post match analysis. Where did Gata go wrong!

15) 04/7/96 - Karpov, Anatoly - Kamsky, Gata     1/2   42   Modern Benoni

The Modern Benoni is experiencing a minor revival at the top level
at the moment. Clearly the Bb5+ line which Nunn described as
putting the Benoni out of business more than 10 years ago isn't
quite as convincing as all that. In addition with a large lead and
no need to take risks Karpov played it quietly. My impression was a
well conducted game.

Question for post match analysis. Anything special occur in this

16) 06/7/96 - Kamsky, Gata    - Karpov, Anatoly  1-0   49   Queen's Indian

With the title nearly in his hands Karpov plays a total stinker.
Karpov had almost refuted this opening when he played the white
pieces but in his preparation he "discovered" 23. ... Qf5 amd
played it in a number of games with his seconds. Not one of them
saw 25. Rdxf7. Karpov pulled himself together and looked to have
good drawing chances, especially after the inaccurate 41. f4.
Kamsky continued his pressure and Karpov simply played a couple of
rank bad moves and lost.

Question for post match analysis. Was this game really that bad?

17) 08/7/96 - Karpov, Anatoly - Kamsky, Gata     1/2   60   Reti

Karpov is now only interested in finishing the match as risklessly
as possible. He hacks all the pieces off to give a symetrical
position. His play is inaccurate and Kamsky almost does his
impression of Karpov in getting something out of nothing. A
determined performance from Kamsky in the face of imminent defeat.
Karpov grovels to a draw.

Question for post match analysis. Suggestions for better
alternatives for White.

18) 10/7/96 - Kamsky, Gata    - Karpov, Anatoly  1/2   80   Queen's Indian

Kamsky at least showed in the final games of the match that his
spirit was not broken by Karpov. The players followed an old
Kasparov-Karpov game from 1984 which is just a tiny bit better for
White. Kamsky goes all the way to move 80 without making the
advantage any larger.

Question for post match analysis. This was always a draw wasn't it?

3)  Dortmund "Stadtsparkasse Dortmund" Bank International Chess Tournament

The 400.000 DM "Stadtsparkasse Dortmund" Bank Tournament has turned
out to be a fight between Viswanathan Anand and Vladimir Kramnik.
It ended with them sharing first place.

Although the tournament was highly competitive I have been somewhat
disappointed with the chess. Only a couple of games in the first
seven rounds really caught the eye, some players I think a
suffering from a surfeit of chess.

Kramnik, Anand and Gelfand all played very strong chess and the
recovery of Judit Polgar yet again shows her mental toughness.
Peter Leko's last place will have been disappointing to him but is
ironically likely to lead to further invitations. After becoming a
GM he played some of the most boring chess possible. He needed to
shake up his style and he played much more agressively here. He was
unlucky in a number of games and once he settles a little I'm sure
this will lead to a new level of achievement.

My thanks to Otto Borik for the last two rounds games and to the
City of Dortmund www server for excellent coverage.

The agreement between the US Chess Federation (Steve Doyle), the
Russian Chess Federation (Andrei Makarov) and the German Chess
Federation (Egon Ditt) on the 23rd of June was presumed by me to be
in part about having agreed a Candidate to stand as FIDE President.
I tried to find out over the following week's but it was still

The magazine "Die Schachwoche" published the story that this
alliance wants Brazilian Jaime Sunye-Neto as new FIDE President.
The ticket will be presented at a press conference on 21 July in
the Netherlands according to the report. The ticket as a whole is
not known but it is obviously possible that Steve Doyle, Andrei
Makarov and Egon Ditt might be part of the ticket. We will have to
see who gets on the ticket also.

Having discussed with friends about possible candidates for the
FIDE Presidency over the years it seemed to me that Jaime
Sunye-Neto sounded like one of the few well qualified candidates

He was on the Players' Council for a number of years and made a
good impression as being both level headed and trustworthy. 18
months ago he became the chairman of CACDEC (the route used by
Campomanes many years ago).

It is in his organisational ability that he really impresses with a
large number of successful events behind him. He was the driving
force behind the American Grand Prix which was a series of open
tournament around the continent with good prizes and conditions.

A good player he has been described as suffering from "too much
common sense and not enough flair or gambling spirit." but whilst
this is bad in chess it isn't necessarily so in organisation.

When I discussed him as a possible President the only real problem
seemed to be that some regard him as not being quite hard enough to
cope with the politics of the elections and wondered whether he
wanted to get involved in such a process. Well if Die Schachwoche
is correct then he has decided to do so. (my thanks to my friends
in helping me to compile this piece on Jaime Sunye-Neto)

5) Agreement for re-unification match between Karpov and Kasparov?

Andrei Makarov and Kirsan Ilyumzhinov announced they intend to
organize a Karpov-Kasparov match; this should be held in 1997 for a
prize fund of no less than $2 million - outside FIDE. The match
being sponsored not by FIDE or the PCA but by Makarov and
Ilyumzhinov. (which begs the question "What is the point?" [MC] To
me there is only one point in reunification and that is to
establish a World Champion and so a unified new title race can be
undertaken and that players with legitimate pretensions for the
title can get their chance.)

This match sould be considered a match "between 13th and 14th FIDE
World champions" the winner should be the "Absolute World champion

They both think it should be in Russia but the better conditions
should prevail.

"The match between Karpov and Kasparov is essential. Chess cannot
do without it" Makarov is quoted as saying.

Andrei Makarov and Kirsan Ilyumzhinov intend to have a meeting with
the K`s before the end of the year. During this meeting, all the
technical conditions should be settled. Kirsan and Makarov should
provide the playing venue and the prize fund.

"We have got agreement in principle to meet for a prize fund of not
less than $2 million, the match will take place in 1997."

Ilyumzhinov said he obtained Karpov's agreement to the match on
Saturday after the 45-year-old Russian retained his FIDE world

Kasparov was approached by Andrei Makarov.

Ilyumzhinov is quoted as saying however that he intends to have his
FIDE Knock out championship at the end of the year. (Karpov and
Kasparov were to be seeded to the semi-final stage)

Makarov has said that Kasparov does not intend to play.

"It's not in Karpov's schedule " according to Karpov's second
American GM Ron Henley.

FIDE Elections

Makarov was asked why he supported Kirsan on the one hand and why
he was on the ticket of Sunye Neto on the other hand.

"Well, there is a place for Russian Chess Federation - the largest
in the world - on Sunye Neto's ticket but I insisted on this: 'I am
Makarov and I support Kirsan' " said Andrei Makarov

Kirsan Ilyumzhinov explained how he met the members of the
Executive Council at the start of the K-K match. How all of them
supported him and how some of them were also on Sunye Neto's list.
He said he wanted intrigues and manoeuvres to be stopped.

"FIDE has been living too long of such intrigues and that brought
this body to the verge of collapse. As a President of Kalmykian
Republic, I cannot take the risk of being involved in such

That's the reason why Kirsan said he wanted to be elected without
mentioning who whould be on his list. " I do not want 16
federations to fight to death for one month during the Olympiad ".

The prizes for press during the match.

Erdnie Charmakov (Izvestia Kalmykia) won the car, a Honda for his
reports on the match. Yuri Vasiliev (Sport Express), Alexander
Rochal (64), Albert Minulin (Komsomolskaya Pravda) all won
souvenirs for their " good " stories in their newspapers.

7) Fascinating chess 1997 by Gerald Schendel

Anatoly Karpov, the old and new World Champion (congratulations!),
has selected twelve of his games for an in Germany unique project:
a chess calendar - for the year 1997. The games date from the time
period 1970-1990. They are classics of modern chess history.

Some facets of the personality of the World Champion are almost
unknown. He is - like Garri Kasparov - honorary member of the
international organization "Chess Collectors International " (CCI)
and known as an expert to the artistic aspects of chess. He has an
extensive collection of chess pieces.

The most valuable and important sets of chess pieces can be found
in the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York) and in the Hermitage (
St. Peterburg).  But every page of this calendar for the twelve
months of the year demonstrates, what also a private collection -
as this one of Rainer Grund/Baden/Germany (CCI) - can offer.

Chess and art join together into fantastic photos of remarkable
positions of important chess games with artistic and historical
chess pieces from many countries.

With this calendar, for the first time presented during the Credis
GM-Tournament in the Racket Center Nussloch, a renowned German
publishing house (Stadler, Constance/Germany; Fax +49-(0)
7531-898101 ) starts a program for chess. The calendar is an
esthetic pleasure for chess friends and a new idea to promote

Bobby Ang reports on an article in the Philippine Daily Inquirer" today,
July 9, 1996.


World Chess Federation (FIDE) Chair Florencio Campomanes has won
the first round of his legal battle with newspaper columnist Arturo
Borjal when Quezon City prosecutor Bienvenido Tomboc recommended
the filing of a criminal libel case against Borjal with Judge
Salvador Cequera of RTC [Regional Trial Court] Branch 82.

Tomboc recommended a bail of P10,000 [around US $385] for Borjal's
temporary liberty.

Campomanes sued borjal for P50,000,000 [around US $1.9 million]
early this year for writing a series of defamatory articles over a
period covering June 13 until December 8, 1995.

In his complaint, the four-time Fide president claimed that Borjal,
who writes a daily column for the Star, used his column 22 times
"in launching a vengeful campaign to assassinate his character,
cause his dishonor, discredit and contempt, destroy his reputation
and subject him to trial by publicity."

Borjal tried to link Campomanes to the so-called "Chess Scam" in
connection with the holding of the successful World Chess Olympiad
in Manila in 1992, but he was not able to produce any evidence.

In his decision, Tomboc said there was "reasonable ground to
believe that respondent (Borjal) was motivated by ill-will and
malice when he published the defamatory statements."

Tomboc said Borjal did not report that Campomanes was cleared by
the Ombudsman as early as September 1995 and in republishing the
articles even while the case is pending in the prosecution's
office, Borjal "showed bad faith."

Tomboc also noted that Borjal devoted one article to write about
Campomanes' alleged fall from grace after the Fide Central
Committee meeting in Paris, which was actually far from the truth
because after Campomanes resigned as Fide president, he was
nominated and unanimously elected Fide chair.

Regarding the articles which Borjal reproduced from Chess Life
which he picked up int he Internet, Tomboc said, "these articles
are by themselves defamatory and therefore made Borjal himself
liable for them if he were the originator."

No date has yet been set for Borjal's arraignment.

14) Asian Cities Championship for the Dubai Cup by Arvind Aaron

June 17-25, 1996

Two teams from the strongest chess country in Asia, Uzbekistan,
dominated the Asian Cities championship this June in Dubai. Top
seed Tashkent, with an average Elo rating of 2530 won the
prestigious Dubai Cup for the Asian Cities Championship at the
World Trade Centre, Dubai. They scored 25.5 points, the same as
sixth seed Samarkand but were champions on tie-break. Held at a
budget of $1.8 million dollars, it is the biggest ever budget for
an event in Asia.

The entries of 41 was also a record. The pattern was a nine round
Swiss with 4 players and two reserves. There was no event for
women. It was organised by the Dubai Chess Club and not the UAE
Chess Association. Noticeably, the Chinese did not participate.

Tashkent with a powerful line up consisting GMs Alexander Nenashev
(2595), M.Saltaev (2530), S.Zagrebelny (2500) and IMs S.Tuldachev
(2495), D.Kaiumov (2435), FM Kasimdzhanov (2425) swept to a massive
score but the departure of Nenashev (5.5/6) home cost them very
heavily as Hochiminh (Vietman) badly beat them 3-1 to throw the
event open. But a spirited 3.5-0.5 last round effort against
Singapore held them tie Samarkand. Samarhand (IM Safin Shukhrat
2510, IM Tahir Vakhidov 2410, IM Alexei Barsov 2465, M.Dzhumaev
2365, Hasan Shodiev 2000, Firuz Nishanova 2000) also from
Uzbekistan managed only 3-1 in the last round against Pavlodar
which let Tashkent catch them up.

The break up of the former Soviet Union has strengthened Asian
chess and it showed in this event. The last time Dubai hosted this
event was in 1992 when a laser show in the opening ceremony was
arranged at a cost of about 80,000 dollars!

The Asian Soviets also make business and Dubai is one of their
nerve-centres for trade. Today, many men on the street of Dubai
speak Russian, not only Malayalam & Tamil (south Indian languages),
Hindi, Urudu. IM Manuel Aaron who was a chess trainer in Sharjah
for three years returns to find Russian markings on many products.

 1. Tashkent (Uzb) 25.5
