Kibitzer's Corner

Feb-18-06  jamesmaskell: Its probably too early to declare for candidates. I know particular people in chess have declared but that was because there was no way they would change their mind...Seirawan for one. Federations want good things to come to them and some federations wont declare until they know who the winner is...that way they can back the winner and possibly get some benefits from supporting the winning candidate.
Feb-18-06  iron maiden: Bessel Kok's campaign for the FIDE presidency has merged with the French Chess Federation and their candidate, Leo Battisti. In return for Battisti's support, Kok has given him an administrative position and agreed to return the FIDE headquarters to France if elected.

Feb-21-06  Chess Champ: Kirsan has been confirmed by many asian federations and there are I think more who will back him up!
Feb-23-06  Chess Champ: I am thinking about taking back what I said, but it's been disappointing, they do not listen to what some people are telling them, they are nice and all, Borg I thought was cool, but I dont know who and what he was told, instead of listening, he just did not care, if he did, he would have had a better approach to ideas given to him... before they were made public!
Feb-23-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Is there actually a separate website for Ilyumzhinov's campaign?
Feb-23-06  diction: EmperorAtahualpa: ;)
Feb-23-06  EmperorAtahualpa: No way, really <diction>?! :)
Mar-08-06  acirce: <We give below the letter of support that the English Grandmasters have sent as an open letter :

We, the undersigned English Grandmasters, would like to express our support for Bessel Kok in the forthcoming Presidential Election in Turin, May 2006.

He has an exemplary record of organising and supporting top level chess events as well as a highly distinguished business career.

We believe this is a unique opportunity to restore credibility to FIDE and to reverse the decline in their capacity to attract commercial sponsorship.

For these reasons we implore the English Chess Federation to join the clear majority of their European colleagues in supporting positive change after a decade of stagnation.

May-02-06  cuendillar: From chessbase concerning the standings for the moment. Ilyumzhinov seem to have the upper hand, but Schulz writes that there is often scant proof given by many of Kirsans claimed countries. Also, it's a bit strange that countries without players apparently have a chess federation.
Jun-04-06  samikd: <At the end of the first day, FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov appointed Zurab Azmaiparashvili of Georgia, Nizar El Haj of Libya and Khalifa Al Hitmi of Qatar as FIDE Vice Presidents.>

All shady characters.
David Levy accused Bessel's campaign to be Eurocentric, and concerned only about the top GMs. That may be, but as far as I know Europeans and top GMs are at least better than Khalifa's

Jun-04-06  acirce: <samikd> Can you tell me in concrete terms what is wrong with Nizar Elhaj and Khalifa Al Hitmi. I don't know much about them.

And what do you mean by <Khalifa's>? Khalifa is his name!

Jun-04-06  samikd: Khalifa is a title (like Baron/Lord/Duke) which means 'King' or 'Ruler'. That guy is from the royal family/ oil king type. I dont like such people. Dont know much about Nizar El Haj, though. Shouldnt have said bad things about him. Sorry.
Sep-19-06  screwit: There is not much to say Mr. Borg, we told you that current president will use tricks of 1 point system, we had it all ready for you, but no... now who knows what will happen, in next 4 years he may win... But, why not...
Sep-22-06  aslongasittakes: Of course, the current championshop is wrong, they need not to use blitz, it's a shame, if you won I hope you would not use that pathetic system, it's totally unacceptable. If you listened to champ, you would have been winner today...
Sep-22-06  Open Defence: ok i can't resist..

resistance is futile....

Sep-22-06  suenteus po 147: <Open Defence> You're technological and biological distinctiveness will be added to our own.
Sep-22-06  Open Defence: <suenteus po 147?> or <species 8472?>
Nov-08-06  markonchess: What biology are you talking about?
As far as I know, chess champ and others told Mr. Borg he will loose big time (at least by 2) that if he does not change tactic toward kirsan will be too late and he was told that Kirsan will use reunification as his arsenal and he was very calculating. There was a story that Kirsan once saved somebody running thru rain of bullets to bring somebody out of the building, any details? He never used that much to his advantage.

  perfidious: I'd like to see this player have a go with H J Federer, using his wooden racquet.
Dec-30-11  acmilan03c1: Full name seems to be Geoffrey David Borg:
Nov-22-12  The Last Straw: He doesn't play the Borg defense?
Nov-23-12  waustad: Until looking into it more I didn't realize that the name of the Brog Defense came from the spelling Grob backwards.
Nov-23-12  Abdel Irada: <samikd: Khalifa is a title (like Baron/Lord/Duke) which means 'King' or 'Ruler'.>

Actually, that's not quite correct. "Khalifa," corrupted to "Caliph" in English usage, really means "successor," and its original application was to designate the Prophet Muhammad's successors as leader of the Islamic Empire.

However, it is also now used as a surname.

Apr-09-17  ColeTrane: Actually, Wiz Khalifa is a 420 friendly rapist....!?! Dang auto correct... Rapper!
