    Re: An Open Letter to FIDE from the CFC

    Our players would no longer get to play in FIDE tournaments like World Cup, Olympiad, U16 Olympiad, WYCC/WCCC, or any tournament for that matter where the organizers pay for food and accommodation. ...

    Go Rohan and Svitlana! Some of the others are having good tournaments as well.

    Re: CFC Member Stats

    They are supposed to be counted in the total but they are not directly accessible by the CFC and therefore they don't tend to be counted in the statistics when doing these calculations.

    Re: CFC Member Stats

    It should, though we have to overcome some hurdles to be able to accurately include FQE members.

    Re: An Open Letter to FIDE from the CFC

    Don't be so sure. All options are on the table. At this point, I still hope that FIDE will do the right thing.

    An Open Letter to FIDE from the CFC

    An Open Letter to FIDE, from the Chess Federation of Canada regarding the Kovalyov incident at the World Cup.
    September 17, 2017
    Dear Mr. Makropoulos,
    I would like to thank you for your September...

    Duplicate post

    Oops. Not sure how we got two copies of this.

    We had a number of internet issues last night so likely it looked like it hadn't posted.
  13. Re: Kovaliov playng in the World's Cup in Giorgia

    If you had limited your sanction list to ZA, I probably wouldn't have complained but we will need those other two individuals if we are going to be able to resolve this situation. Perhaps Brian...
  14. Re: Kovaliov playng in the World's Cup in Giorgia

    Saying we should ban Kirsan and Makro is somewhat incendiary particularly when what Kirsan said was somewhat encouraging. I have a response written with some help and tweaking from the executive,...
  15. Re: Kovaliov playng in the World's Cup in Giorgia

    I do not have to think about whether they read chesstalk. I have discussed chesstalk posts with one or two of them so yes they can have an effect and my impression is that they do care. I am...
  16. Re: Kovaliov playng in the World's Cup in Giorgia

    Bob, this will not help our case. Please refrain from such comments. I, Hal and the members of the Directors get to make the incendiary comments.
  17. Re: Ilyumzhinov: "It's frustrating that Azmaiparashvili lost his temper"

    Hi John,

    Lets not presuppose that FIDE is going to do the wrong thing here. Every indication at the moment is that they will do the right thing and take actions that will prevent this from...
  18. Re: Ilyumzhinov: "It's frustrating that Azmaiparashvili lost his temper"

    It is not a trivial issue. That said I hope Anton does not stop playing over this.
  19. Re: Ilyumzhinov: "It's frustrating that Azmaiparashvili lost his temper"

    I was under the impression that that dress code document was already adopted but apparently it is just a proposed dress code. Still even if Anton was unknowingly violating the unspecified dress code...

    I think the picture looks too much like Bozo the clown. Perhaps a more Pennywise interpretation in order to be more trendy might be in order.

    Top level chess in Canada has probably had a setback whose effects will certainly be long lasting and you want to side with the Disney villain in this scenario.

    Appeal the way Anton was treated at a key moment just before one of the most important games of his life. This situation is just unbelievable and intolerable.

    One has to wonder why FIDE keeps...

    The dress code specifically allows bermuda shorts so that is not the issue. What is shocking is the display of bigotry and prejudice which appears to be tolerated by FIDE. Clearly this was intended...
