THE RISE AND FALL OF CANADIAN CHESS
This article’s publishing date has been put back until this fall.
This controversial article is my version of what has happened -and why- to organized chess in Canada these past 20 years. This is a true story. A bird’s- eye view, so to speak ,of the incestuous relationship between Canadian chess organizers, special interests and money.
Of the often bizarre/incestuous legacy of the corrupted leadership in Canadian chess. This is the story that will be remembered by future generations of Canadians of what really happened, long after we are all gone.
There will be no hiding the truth this time! Absolutely uncensored!
Divided into 5 parts, the article will be presented as a series:
1) The Kevin Spraggett Foundation for Chess (1988-1992) and the FQE
2) Larry Bevand’s personal war on organized chess ( 1996-present)
3) The ChessTalk fiasco (especially the dirty war)
4) The sale of Canada’s National Team (especially the Yves Charbonneau saga)
5) The last days of the CFC
