Chessical: <Karpova> I have only one issue with your version; translating "die anderen Völker" as "the other peoples" does not read well in English. Using "other nations" ,in my opinion, conveys the meaning better . Anyway, I agree with <Ohio Chess Fan>'s suggestion that we ...

Chessical: <WCC> Your questions and my responses: 1 Check "champions'" - <This should read "Champion's" as it refers only to Karpov. I mistyped the apostrophe>. 2 Kasparov had vociferously objected to FIDE’s first choice of Svetozar Gligoric and Anton Kinzel...Did Kasparov mean ...
