Other Russia, Kasparov president ?

"The former world chess champion Garry Kasparov entered Russia's presidential race on Sunday, elected overwhelmingly as the candidate for the country's beleaguered opposition coalition (Other Russia)"


This is a bit off topic but it could be interesting to know the view of our russian friends, from the inside, about this !?

Kasparov for president ?

I would rather prefer to see Garry in a different race. Those for the correspondence chess championship (ICCF or FICGS :-) instead of becoming a stupid politician. :-(

Kasparov CC

I wonder what would look like a Kasparov correspondence chess game !? .. I think he would feel frustrated quite quickly :)

By the way, I remember that Peter Leko played some correspondence chess games at ICCF... Well, a first Google search "Peter Leko correspondence chess games" gives a thread at FICGS without the information.. those spammers are annoying :) .. Also this page with a CC game (unfinished) of Bobby Fischer :

Kasparov CC

If I remember correctly Garry once stated that he could win such a title easily, because he is superior in analyzing chess positions. Could be true, or not ? van Oosterom - Kasparov at CC conditions, what is your prediction ? Maybe Garry has an advantage because he can analyze deeper within a specific time unit due to his superior chess knowledge and experience.

Kasparov vs. CC champion

That's a good question and it would be very interesting to see such a match.

Quite hard to say, it was probably true a few years ago, nowadays I'm not sure anymore...

Kasparov CC perfomans - 3126!! +56=2-0 (1979-1982 & 1992-9 - 1998)

Kasparov CC

Hello Viktor ! So Garry Kasparov did play correspondence chess ?! Do you know where one can find some games (maybe you can post some here) ?

Kasparov CC

Almost all CC-games from tournaments in the USSR are lost.

CC Kasparov and other OTB GM's

Viktor, What kind of Russian tournaments did he play ? I played at chessfriend against OTB Elo > 2600 GM Daniel Fridman from Latvia. At CC he was only around Elo 2300. But I could not communicate with him to ask about his motivation for cc

CC / OTB ratings

Since strong engines appeared, there's no more a clear relation between OTB and CC ratings IMO. A few months ago, GM Nigel Davies explained that he gave up correspondence chess because it simply asks too much energy and time.

GMs + engine vs amateur + engine

However it would be interesting to know if Kasparov or any other strong OTB GM + strong engine would play significant better chess than an amateur + strong engine at cc time control.

Kasparov vs the World

Thank you for the interesting link. It is quite an interesting game and when playing without further and depper analysing it looks like the World did a very good job, which should at least be sufficient for a draw.

Kasparov on Bill Maher

After Kasparov's win on Colbert, Bill Maher was checkmated also :)

Other Russia, Kasparov president ?

Yes, of course. But, not now. =( 0-5 (much as it was Karpov-Kasparov) are still to come.
