A work in progress! I will add to and update news items from around the chess world during the past days. Great play from the World Champion in Bilbao, taking his third title at the Spanish resort. The Quebec Open is underway, while the Calgary International begins tomorrow. And much more… Enjoy!
We all saw it coming. FIDE is not entirely to blame, but accepting bids from countries that have ”bad relations” with its neighbors, to put it politely, never works out as you want it.
