    Grandmaster Eugene Torre believes having former world chess champion Anatoly Karpov visit the country would boost the sports’ popularity in the local scene as efforts are already underway to bring the Russian legend this year.

    Torre, also Asia’s first Grandmaster, said Karpov’s presence would show the younger generation that one of the fiercest battles in World Chess Championship history was fought in the country.



    The Russian Embassy and Baguio City headed by Mayor Benjamin Magalong are eyeing to have Karpov in the country in November for a nostalgic tour.

    It is a bit sad there. Major stores that in earlier years were excellent sources for chess equipment are now threadbare - no books at all. I found it excellent for supplying Aussie students with cheap or free books. Their reprints were a fraction of original prices. If possible I will attempt to be there for the occasion.

    @ AC

    Interesting story about the blitz.

    @ Elliott

    Karpov and Torre were always on friendly terms. Two years ago I bought a pocket book about Torre in MCC. I read it on the flight home and learned there that Torre was good to help Karpov getting in touch with the cute local girls.

    Bobby Fischer went down that path and after his flag had fallen was accused of queening a pawn. Unfortunately the countback proved that Bobby left no heir to his throne or fortune. If that fate visited consecutive world champions then never let "One night in Bangkok" disturb the sounds of silence again.

    nice to know

    Absolutely pathetic referring to two prominent chess personalities, (both married family men) as falling that low as described above.
    Let me assume that this was a very trashy publication you got your non evidenced information from!
    I thought this was a serious thread. Not interested to contribute to or read from it in the future.

    He turns 70 next month.

    Yes it is a serious thread, but that doesn't mean it's a thread for precious princesses!

    Yep, Capa, and he doesn't pretend that he has written it himself.
