Oct-12-14  landlizard: Probably most people know this, but Kirsan is a disease that has infected FIDE and there is no cure. I would guess the Kasparov haters are drones or idiots sponsored by this shady character.

Just go to the Fide web site, or view anything that fide is involved with, and you will see more pictures of Kirsan than you will of the chess players. It does not take a genius to recognize the blatant propaganda he uses to promote himself. Not only that, but he probably sucks at chess.

It's sickening to read something comparing Kasparov to Kirsan. There is no comparison. The primary reason top chess players do not get the money they deserve is because no legitimate organization or individual wants Kirsan's image associated with their name or product.

A new organization needs to be formed, or Kirsan needs to leave Fide. He won't leave voluntarily, and he knows how to manipulate the one country one vote to maintain his stranglehold on Fide.

People that distract from the issue by bashing Kasparov, need to get a life. They obviously don't know what's happening with Fide. Maybe Kasparov's arrogance bothers them, maybe they are paid shills to trash Kasparov, and distract from the real problem.

  MissScarlett: <Chess in Translation @ChessinT ∑ Oct 30

Curiously, in a meeting with Putin Ilyumzhinov talked about "bids from a few countries" for the World Ch. match:>

Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: Here's the official version of events:

<The most important thing for us is the modern means of telecommunications, as the match will be broadcast online. Tens of millions, and we have had cases where up to 400 millions of people, chess players visited the championship website and the website simply collapsed.>

This is what's known in the trade as <talking bollocks>.

Dec-07-14  Rookiepawn: <To mix the terms God and disease together in the same sentence>

Not only that, I heard he mixed also "god" with "toaster", "cockroach", "zino-pad" and "leprechaun". If this doesn't send Mr <perfidious> to jail then the Western civilization is seriously threatened.

What the hail is a zino-pad anyway? Can y'all tell me?

  MissScarlett: <At another point of the program, Ilyumzhinov was asked by one of the presenters:

- Is chess also politics?
- Of course,- Ilyumzhinov replied. - In our life, everything is politics. If you don't do politics, politics does you.>

  Absentee: If the US administration wants the country to host the next world championship, then blacklisting the president of FIDE sure is a smart move.

Don't worry, Kirsan will consult with his space alien friends and they will tell him the solution.

  perfidious: <devere> He's in conference with 'em right now!! Sh-h-h-h!!
