An interesting scenario is being played out in Norway at the minute. Garry Kasparov is making a bid to become President of the world chess organisation, which is named FIDE. I get the distinct impression internal FIDE politics is almost as treacherous as the politics of N.Ireland!
Presently FIDE do not recognise the local Ulster Chess Union so local chess enthusiasts have no input in the matter. There is also a massive competition taking place at the same venue featuring most of the world`s nations.
Here is an interview with Gary Kasparov speaking on a variety of issues. One of the important topics he mentions is the use of chess as an educational tool. This can be heard about 3 minutes on the timeline.
The guy doing the interview is called Danny King, he is an English GM and he has a brilliant personality for interviewing people. Here are some of his interviews with female chess players.
Female one. It is hilarious when she says “she was always butting her nose into everyone`s business!” It is not a healthy pastime to do that here in N.Ireland.
They are very clever women aren`t they? A bit too clever maybe?????? lol lol
