Kasparov โก่งค่าตัว

รายละเอียด

The World Chess Federation (FIDE: www.fide.com) regrets Garry Kasparov`s announcement to withdraw
from playing the World Chess Championship match against Rustam Kasimdzhanov at the scheduled dates
of April 25th to May 14th 2005.

During the latest FIDE Congress in Spain, the Turkish Chess Federation expressed its strong desire
to organize this match. FIDE informed the General Assembly that the Turkish bid was actively
supported by the former World Champion Garry Kasparov who urged FIDE to "give somebody else the
authority to act unless FIDE already has the money from the Dubai organizer". On 2 December
2004, FIDE entered discussions with the Turkish Chess Federation and requested the necessary bank
guarantees before signing any agreement or issuing player’s contracts. Garry Kasparov had made it
clear several times that he would not sign anything before he receives "acceptable"
financial guarantees.

During the negotiations with the Turkish Chess Federation Garry Kasparov and World Champion Rustam
Kasimdzhanov were kept fully informed about all developments. They knew that:

a) FIDE authorized the Turkish Chess Federation on December 7 to secure the necessary funds in order
to organize this match in Turkey with an initial deadline of 29 December.

b) On 3 January 2005 the Deputy Prime Minister of the Turkish Republic, Mr Mehmet Ali Sahin,
informed FIDE in writing that Turkey is ready to provide all necessary guarantees for the
organization of the match, including the prize fund of 1.000.000 USD, organizational costs, etc.

c) Following this letter of the Turkish Deputy Prime Minister, FIDE gave the Turkish Chess
Federation a new deadline of 18 January for the issue of bank guarantees of 200.000 USD for each
player and 50.000 USD for FIDE. The total amount of 1.272.000 USD would have to be transferred to
FIDE’s bank account no later than 25 March 2005.

Meanwhile, both players agreed that the match would begin on 25 April 2005.

A few days ago, the representative lawyer of the Turkish Chess Federation, Mr Cemal Dursun, informed
Garry Kasparov that no bank guarantees could be issued before 25 January. After receiving this
information, Garry Kasparov sent an email to FIDE on 18 January announcing that he is no longer
available to participate in this match for the dates that had been agreed (25 April - 14 May).

It is obvious that we are facing again a stalemate situation concerning the realization of the
Prague Agreement, a situation for which FIDE cannot be held accountable. The official letter of the
Turkish Deputy Prime Minister represents for FIDE a strong guarantee in order to provide the Turkish
organizers with the necessary time to deal with the formal procedures concerning the issuance of the
required financial guarantees.

Garry Kasparov, who for a long time has sincerely co-operated towards the realization of the Prague
Agreement, should have at least shown his respect to his opponent Rustam Kasimdzhanov and his
appreciation for the efforts of the Turkish Chess Federation and the Turkish Government before
announcing his unilateral decision to withdraw from this match.

It has to be clear to everyone that it is impossible to secure such high prize funds from legitimate
sponsors, acceptable to FIDE and the IOC, without providing the candidate organizers with the
necessary time to complete their efforts, especially when the government of a country is the
guarantor for the organization of the match. It is even more difficult to secure these prize funds
when the participants demand excessive financial guarantees before commiting themselves in writing.

FIDE continues to seek solutions concerning the funding of the World Chess Championship, in
co-operation with its national federations and in close contact with all interested parties.
