Organizers of an international chess tournament in Corsica said on Tuesday they had expelled Iranian Grandmaster Ehsan Ghaem Maghami for refusing to take on an Israeli player.
|Mar-18-12|| ||shivasuri4: Playing in the 12th round of the Bundesliga 2011-12, Ehsan Ghaem Maghami of Hamburger SK beat German GM Daniel Fridman of SV Mulheim Nord in a 51 move game.It was a complex game with exposed kings. Both missed many winning chances, with Fridman making the last critical error at move 40(Qb7, instead of the equal Qe6).|
|May-19-14|| ||capafischer1: He is a great grandmaster and very good friends with Gelfand. Because of politics he can not play against Israeli players when he plays for Iran. By the way his last fide rating is 2580. He also beat Daniel Friedman in bundesliga a while back and he is jewish but not from Israel. Either way I know this guy personally and he loves all chessplayers.|
|Aug-11-14|| ||Penguincw: Happy 32nd birthday to GM Ehsan Ghaem Maghami. So far, at the Chess Olympiad (2014), he's 3/6 (+2,-2,=2). Good luck to him and his team as they face Ireland. On board 1, he has white against GM Alexander Baburin.|
|Mar-18-15|| ||offramp: I've been thinking about that simultaneous world record, set in Tehran in 2011. |
I live in London, the centre of the world, and if I was asked to find 600 chess players I could probably do it. I could teach some myself.
But most of those players would be incredibly weak, barely above beginner-level. I'd expect them to lose in about a dozen moves.
In Tehran it may be different. It may be possible in that focus of chess history to find 600 strong chess players who are all available for the same time-window. Or perhaps 95% of the 600 were total and utter patzers who were only barely aware of the right way to move the pieces.... I don't know, I'm just a caveman!!
|Jan-06-16|| ||Bruce Graham: GM makes news by not playing: http://en.mehrnews.com/news/113377/...|
|Jan-06-16|| ||greed and death: <Bruce Graham> Isn't the reason Iranian players do that because if they play an Israeli, their government will punish them?|
|Jan-06-16|| ||Bruce Graham: <greed and death> Quite possibly you are correct. Which raises a question- what about a Saudi player? Or one of their close allies?|
|Sep-06-16|| ||Randyyhonson: One day if I have the chance I will challenge you again,I will know more about Chess and I'll beat you!!!|

Incident at <Basel Schachfestival (Open) in 2016>, report by Hartmut Metz:
<Der iranische Grossmeister Ehsam Ghaem Maghami verzichtete auf das Duell mit der Israelin Yuliya Naiditsch Shvayger, obwohl ihn die kampflose Niederlage um alle Chancen auf den Turniersieg und die 2500 Franken Preisgeld brachte.
Ghaem Maghami hatte den Veranstaltern schon nach der ersten Runde mitgeteilt, dass er gegen die Israelin nicht antreten dürfe.
Dort hatte das Paarungsprogramm auch bereits das iranisch-israelische Duell ausgespuckt. «Wir losten aber noch einmal neu, weil wir Ghaem keinen Stein in den Weg legen wollten», gesteht Organisator Zanetti.
In der Runde 5 konnten die Organisatoren aber keine Milde mehr walten lassen – schliesslich hätte kurz vor Toreschluss eine neue Auslosung die Preisränge deutlich mehr beeinflussen können. «Da konnten wir nicht mehr anders. Ich erklärte es Ghaem. Er verstand es», berichtet Zanetti.
Der Iraner war schon einmal vor ein paar Jahren auf Korsika von einem Turnier ausgeschlossen worden, als der Spitzenspieler gegen einen Israeli nicht antrat. Maghami dürfte allerdings kein Vorwurf gemacht werden, glauben die Organisatoren.
Ihm und seiner Familie drohen dem Vernehmen nach ansonsten Repressalien in Teheran. Dass er ansonsten aus persönlicher Überzeugung auf die Chance verzichtet hätte, mit einem Sieg gegen die weit schwächere Internationale Meisterin auf Platz zwei vorzustossen, bezweifelt das Team um Organisator Bruno Zanetti. Der international spielende Grossmeister und seine Frau, die ebenfalls Nationalspielerin ist, geben sich sonst weltoffen.>
