Chess has found a way to beat COVID-19 with online games, says five-time world champion Anand

Five-time world champion Viswanathan Anand hoped on Tuesday that more female chess players would break through the country’s ranks.

Anand was in conversation with RB Ramesh at Sportstar’s first ever South Sports Conclave here. “It’s very easy to feel very optimistic about young Indians on the boys’ side but not on the girls’ side,” Anand said during a panel discussion titled “Chess and Chennai.”

“Women like Dronavalli Harika, Koneru Humpy, Bhakti Kulkarni and Tanya Sachdeva are still doing well even though they have been around for a while.

“The new ones aren’t really drilled. I hope this Olympiad will trigger something.

“Overall, we need more women in the game. It’s a global problem. The specific thing about India is that Humpy and Harika are still very dominant. I wish them well, but it would be nice if they had more competition from young people.

Olympiad held online

In 2020, when COVID-19 brought sporting activities to a halt, chess found a way to defeat the dreaded virus. Online games featuring players of all skill levels, from beginners to GMs, were played in all time zones. At the end of August 2020, India was crowned co-winners, along with Russia, of the Online Chess Olympiad. It was the first time the prestigious event was held virtually.

Anand weighed in on how easy it is to play chess online. “As long as you’re using it for learning purposes where you’re training specific skills, it’s very healthy. But when you get addicted, you want to play one more game because you want to scam all at once.

“You don’t try to improve anymore, just score and that’s unhealthy. You have to do it more consciously.”

The 44th Chess Olympiad will be held in Chennai from July 28 to August 10. The Olympiad, which was moved out of Russia after it invaded Ukraine, was recently awarded to Chennai, making it the sport’s second major global event to be held in India after the 2013 World Championship between Anand and Magnus Carlsen.

Sarasota chess players, including the mayor, take on the Israel chess team | sarasota https://ajedrezenmexico.org/sarasota-chess-players-including-the-mayor-take-on-the-israel-chess-team-sarasota/ Thu, 09 Jun 2022 13:30:01 +0000 https://ajedrezenmexico.org/sarasota-chess-players-including-the-mayor-take-on-the-israel-chess-team-sarasota/ Mayor Erik Arroyo likes to play chess.

Mayor Erik Arroyo likes to play chess.

It’s true when he was a young boy after he got his first set of chess – he thinks his dad gave it to him, but he’s not sure – up to when he was a lawyer working in Sarasota and playing chess all day with other lawyers and judges, moving pieces between crates.

He now has a chess set as mayor in city hall, he has one in his car, and he has one at home. He also takes the time to play chess online with players around the world. It’s a connection he clearly values.

“It’s a great way to connect with people around the world,” Arroyo said. “It’s an old tradition that we’ve all managed to pass on.”

He feels good enough – he has his favorite strategies like the English opener, the Stonewall attack or the Sicilian defense depending on whether he’s playing black or white – but that self-assessment took a hit the first time around. participated in a competition at the Manasota Chess Center.

“I thought I was advanced,” Arroyo said. “I got here and was crushed. I won maybe one out of eight matches.

Nonetheless, Arroyo recently found himself at the chess center for a different kind of competition – one that fostered goodwill and camaraderie between Sarasota and the city of Tel Mond in Israel.

Arroyo and five other players of varying backgrounds and skills took on a chess team in Tel Mond in an online chess match to foster unity and friendship on May 28.

The event was a partnership between the Manasota Chess Center and the Sarasota Sister Cities Association, an organization that promotes goodwill between Sarasota and the international cities it partners with.

Executive Director Nicholas Lewis takes the time to join in the game.

Arroyo teamed up with several other players, including a national chess master, and they each played two matches against their opponents in Israel. Players on both sides were chosen to be at similar skill levels. The Sarasota team included Manasota Chess Center Executive Director Nicholas Lewis, National Chess Master Scott Ramer, Scholastic participants Rui Jiang and Ellie Levy – both of whom studied chess at the center – and the player from long-time failures Donnally Miller.

Many players showed up for the thrill of competition, but today’s contest meant more to Sister Cities President Miriam Kramer. The organization’s leader sees it as a way to connect Sarasota to the rest of the world through good deeds, something akin to an idealistic boost for dark times.

“It may look dry on the surface, but it really isn’t,” Kramer said. “Our players meet people (during) their talk, it’s an idealistic view. Our whole (mission) is to create peaceful relations with our cities around the world.

Sisters Cities had held Connected Cities chess matches at local libraries and schools before the pandemic, but that was before Sarasota had its own established chess center. Once it was clear that the Manasota Chess Center was up and running, the wheels started turning in Kramer’s head.

“We did chess matches before, but we didn’t have a chess center back then,” Kramer said. “It just opened a year ago and it’s wonderful. I reached out as soon as I knew they existed.

The sister cities and chess organization soon planned a chess competition against one of Sarasota’s sister cities – the city of Vladimir, Russia. Their match was scheduled just days after what turned out to be an invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces. The relationship between the two cities was suspended and the event was quickly canceled.

Lewis and Kramer were still eager to play and set their sights on the city of Tel Mond in Israel. Fortunately, much of the technical setup and planning could be quickly applied to the new competition.

“I was trying to do something that we could do across the ocean, low cost and fostering friendship,” Kramer said. “We have a strong chess tradition, they have strong chess in Tel Mond.”

Arroyo received an invitation to join the team after Kramer learned he was a chess fan himself. He felt like he was holding his own in his two matches and came away with a win.

There is also philosophical value in chess for Arroyo. He believes playing the game can make you realize the importance of progressive wins and the effects they can have when added together.

“It unites us and teaches a younger generation that, like in chess, you find value in small incremental wins,” Arroyo said. “These can add up to a big win later on. Even small activities like this tournament can add up to a bigger bond with our sister city.”

Lewis was less fortunate. The general manager of the center gave everything in his two matches but left with two defeats. He felt like he had a knock on his opponent but didn’t make the moves necessary to win.

“I’m going back to basics, trying to play good moves,” Lewis said. “It doesn’t matter if the other person is better than you, you play the board. Just make the best shots. »

At the end of the day, Tel Mond defeated Sarasota 9-3.

Still, it was hard for Lewis to view the day itself as a loss. Finally, having the Sarasota team together and competing was a win in itself.

Hopefully, Kramer and Lewis plan to hold new competitions against cities in the future.

“(Sister Cities) has many relationships with different cities,” Lewis said. “Hopefully we can all play them.”

Eight of the world’s best chess players will meet in Spain later this month to determine the next challenger for Magnus Carlsen’s world championship title.

The double round robin will be played from June 17 to July 4 at the Palace of Santona in Madrid, and it has a prize pool of €500,000. But the biggest prize will be the right to play Carlsen in 2023.

The question many people have is whether Carlsen will defend his title.

“I’m unlikely to play another game, unless perhaps the next challenger represents the next generation,” Carlsen wrote in a blog post last December.

This was widely interpreted to mean that he would only play Alireza Firouzja, the 18-year-old Iranian-French grandmaster who is the youngest player to hit the 2,800 rating mark. Carlsen, 32, has been world champion since 2013.

Two of Carlsen’s former challengers, Ian Nepomniachtchi and Fabiano Caruana, are in contention for another title shot. With Firouzja, they are considered the favorites of the Madrid event.

The only Canadian to qualify for a Candidates Tournament is Kevin Spraggett of Montreal, who played in the 1985 and 1988-89 tournaments. He reached the quarter-finals on his second attempt.

Robert Fischer versus Samuel Reshevsky, New York, 1958

White, who was once the winner of the Candidates Tournament himself, uncorks a winning shot. What is that?

10. Bxf7+! if Rxf7 11.Ne6 wins the Black Queen, while Kxf7 11. Ne6 anyway, and if Kxe6 then 12. Qd5+ leads to checkmate.

KARACHI: As the three-day Sindh Chess Championship wrapped up Monday night at the NJV Government Higher Secondary School Auditorium with Awaad Mirza claiming the title, the main topic of discussion was what comes next no only for him but the top players at the event.

The top 10 players in the championship, according to the Sindh Chess Association organizers, have qualified for the national championship, but with the Pakistan Chess Federation currently suspended by the International Chess Federation (FIDE), there is no dates for national championships.

The situation is expected to be resolved once the CFP elections are held in Islamabad on Saturday, but with the country’s chess fraternity deeply divided, there does not seem to be an end in sight for the plight of the country’s chess players.

It has now been 14 years since Pakistan was last represented at the Chess Olympiad, the game’s biggest stage, and as the world competes to produce the youngest Grandmaster, the country has not yet produced one.

According to FIDE master Mohammad Waqar, it is the lack of exposure that has seen Pakistan fall behind the rest of the world. “It’s not about talent,” Waqar told Dawn on the sidelines of the Sindh Championship. “Pakistan has never organized an international event and our players have never had the chance to test themselves regularly at the highest level.”

Pakistan was suspended by FIDE in August 2021 after disputed CFP elections in July of the same year. Waqar Ahmed, who was secretary general at the time, accuses FIDE of having forced the suspension because it wants to elect one of its favorite officials as president of the CFP.

“He wants Mr. Hanif Qureshi to be elected president instead of Mr. Mirza Mohammad Afridi,” Waqar told Dawn on Tuesday. “There is another group led by Mr. Amin Malik which is also vying for election.”

Those same thoughts were echoed by SCA Secretary Mohammad Wasif Nisar, an international FIDE arbitrator, a day earlier during the Sindh Championships.

“Politics in sports hasn’t gotten anywhere, really,” he told Dawn. “It also saw parallel bodies all claiming CFP.”

But Raja Gauhar, the secretary of the Punjab Chess Association, has a different view.

“It’s Hanif Qureshi who has done the most for chess in the country,” he told Dawn on Tuesday. “He is the chess man in the country. And FIDE’s decision will save chess in Pakistan.

In this vicious power struggle, those most affected are the players.

National master Shahzaib Khan, who finished fourth in the Sindh Championship, said uncertainty in the CFP has seen players miss out on crucial ranking points needed to progress to levels above grandmaster.

We can become good players by playing against each other, but at some point your game will not improve, we need international exposure to reach that next level,” Shahzaib told Dawn.

“You need a beehive if you want honey. To produce a Grand Master you need a particular system and until that system is created we will never be able to produce one.

After going from strength to strength to reach some of the highest echelons of the sport, the Brentwood School team recently qualified for the final of the National Under-19 Schools Chess Championship.

Young chess enthusiasts will be among 20 schools across the country taking part in the two-day tournament in the Midlands to decide the national champions.
