My personal blog about chess and everything what is related to this sport. Here you will find only subjective articles. There are no news from chess worlds. No scores, no analysis. Only my own opinions.

Blog still exists

I know there are no new posts, but I would like to inform you all, that my chess blog still exists. There will be some new articles soon. Please be patient.
Last weeks I am very busy. I have a lot of things to do and none of them are related to the chess.

Who am I?

I'm not going to write a long story about myself. I've asked this question, because I want to say something, how am I seen in the internet. Not as a blogger, but as a chess player.
I did write an article about online chess some time ago. I wrote, inter alia, that online chess kills this sport. Some people did not understand me. I meant that the chess as a sport will be changed. The form of chess will be changed.
So far we had an opportunity to discuss with our opponent, to know him, to see him. Now the situation is different. I am not a real player. I am not a human. I am just the rating which has to be beaten. And that is true. We don't need to see our opponent. We don't care how does he look. He is anonymous for us.
I don't like this. And to me the chess over the board will always be more important than online chess. Even if sometimes I'm to lazy too go on the tournament which takes place in the same city where I live.

Does the FIDE organization like you?

Do you think that FIDE organization likes you? Do you think you are important for them? You are absolutly right with some exceptions.
First of all, not you are important for them, but your money. I think if you are not a top grand master they don't even know about your existence. It is only important that you pay for your cometition in tournaments.
Do you need a title? No problem. FIDE will help you. They created for us for example CM title. In case, FIDE doesn't have enough money, they will probably create another one title CCM (means candidate on candidate master).
Why do you think FIDE decreased the level of Elo rating? Because they like us? No they need money. Our money.
I wonder what else do they propose all chess players to get more money. Any ideas?
