Read about it in the Sunday papers

 On 11/20/2005 - I wrote a letter to Alex Baburin about the Latest debacle regarding Kramnik, Topalov and FIDE. Alex posted the letter in Chess Today on Sunday, November 20th. The letter was posted in issue ct-324(1839).

Chess players donít go out much
Just sit at home and push their pawns
But every weekend through the internet
Come words of wisdom from Hangin

If you want to know about the Kramnik vs. Topalov match
If you want to know how to be a true world champion
If you want to know about the stains on FIDE
You can read it in the Sunday Chess Today papers, Sunday Chess Today papers


Alex Baburin comments:
 I think a lot of what mat said makes sense, but i feat that FIDE and its top management won't listen. Despite some recent successes, this organization still has a poor record. It is run in an authoritarian way, has made a number of dubious decisions in the past few years (i.e.. time controls, holding one of its championships in Libya) and breaks its promises easy- just ask Kasparov! Maybe things will change if a new team  comes to power in May, 2006 in Tunic. I don't know ....
