TYOMKIN, Dimitri

Mar-25-11  wordfunph: i forgot where i lifted this excerpt, anyway thanks to the source..

GM Dimitri Tyomkin complained bitterly on the live broadcast of Kramnik-Leko that professional players are not respected by tournament organizers in the US. He mentioned the recent World Open where he'd been paired against some top-rated GM on board 1, but when he turned out to play there was no board, no pieces and no clock. An inquiry to the TD revealed that the players were supposed to visit the USCF store downstairs to buy some equipment first so they could play!

Nov-25-20  PGNSubmitter: <the players were supposed to visit the USCF store downstairs to buy some equipment first so they could play!>

I believe it.

US chess tournaments are notorious for not caring about the playing conditions in the slightest.

They should have played the game blindfolded as a protest.
