Play begins tomorrow at World Blitz in St.Petersburg
All Smiles in St.Petersburg
The most controversial chess event organized by Dvorkovich since becoming FIDE president in October begins tomorrow in St. Petersburg, under the shadow of political opportunism by FIDE’s leadership, gross lack of transparency and – above all – a murdered Saudi journalist by the name of Jamal Kashoggi…whose dismembered body has yet to be found.
The Name of the Game is Money. Blood Money.
