Why Chess ? Why not!
I just finished reading about this new chess site over on Chess In Translation ! An ambitious undertaking with a spin that is just a little bit different from what already exists on the internet. Apparently the brain child of the controvertial French GM Vlad Tkachiev, the site will be available in a number of languages, have daily news from all over the world, and include blogs of Aronian, Grischuk and many others.
What is the politic of WhyChess? I think Tkachiev wants to promote blitz and rapid chess (especially blitz!) as the chess of the future. So far FIDE’s Ilyumzhinov approves of his ideas….but you have to investigate to make up your own mind. Tkachiev also is interested in exploiting the natural charms of the top female players. Should be a site to keep your eye on!
