    This is truly a shame. A vote for Kasparov would have meant releasing FIDE from the grasp of the Kremlin, which of course, would have return the organization to the world. There is no doubt that Kasparov is a much smarter person when it comes to chess, and probably a much more capable leader.

    It is beyond comprehension that people would not want to see a chess legend, who has build a successful carreer on the art, lead FIDE with new ideas. Kasparov would have improved the world of chess in a way that Kirsan could never do.

    Is it any inidication of Kirsan’s competence to see that no one has been willing to come forward to host the World Championship? The answer is obvious.
