Grim news known 37 long years ago … the horrendous 40 draw sleepwalk title match KARPOV-KASPAROV 1985 … that almost killed both players and bankrupted sponsors hotels (Sept 10. 1984- Feb 8. 1985) the no contest stopped … with world champion Karpov still leading by a monstrous 2 games! It took 37 years to realize that R.J. “Bobby” Fischer’s supreme joke, the absurd no games limit contest was really his farewell joke on the chess world … telling Ft. Lauderdale, Florida grandmaster Arnold Denker as early as 1973 he was never going to play again … Fischer also instructed US Chess Federation executive Ed Edmondson to immediately quit sending money from the grateful chess federation. He was never going to play world title chess again … knew it.
We have said it once … here we go again … slow classical chess world title play denies chess to the estimated 600,000,000 chess phone app players/all professional people/parents/sponsors/media in 160 chess nations around the globe … to start with. It has to go! No world title match should ever last more than a week … two killer thrilling games a day with no time added ever, play to a finish, no draw offers ever allowed as the Grand Tour absolutely must mandate shortly … Only the referee can be asked for a draw and double forfeit of both players for phony arranged in advance no contest games will come. Millions of people will someday play for the world chess title … with final big money being paid out ONLY for live in person/WORLD BROADCAST play of course … but closely supervised world QUALIFICATION internet play (not for cash) on the internet will delightfully permit the whole world to play for the world chess championship and a “ONE WORLD RATING” … fun by itself. Imagine 600 million people IN 160 WORLD CHESS FEDERATION (fide) NATIONS with a chess rating. It is not a dream. CHESSLAB told you first … IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN, FOLKS!########################
