Anand, the author, is just loving it – The Hindu

Viswanathan Anand, the author, is just loving it. Select city-hopping to promote his book, Mind Master and getting a first-hand feedback on his honest effort.

So you begin by asking the Grandmaster, how does it feel to be an author?

I would say it's very nice. But you have to do this with some enthusiasm, says Anand and elaborates, the point of the book is to share, add to the public idea of what, who or what you are.

I mean, most people have a certain impression of what a chess player is like, what you do and so on. And they now have something which is slightly closer to the truth.

That's why I felt that it was important to address this book as a chance to get your story out and, you know, you have to divulge stuff. So even though thats not something I normally do liberally, over the last few years, I found that I have opened up in many ways.

I talk more frankly. May be, it's just the sense that, now everything's in the past and I can talk about it without the pains and so on. But it's been fun for me. I had this feeling of something, you know, I've done it. Now I can't do anything more.

Did any of the chess players get back to you on this?

Quite a few players said they really liked it. Many players said they couldnt get it yet. I probably expect more feedback later. (Boris) Gefland said he loved it. He was in Chennai and he read it on the flight back home.

Kramnik didn't mention it. Anish (Giri) even tweeted something, you know, as usual. I'm sure if I probed he would tell me something. But I expect the few others will read it as well.

Away from the book, what does your schedule for 2020 look like?

For the moment. Ive got a tournament Grenke Chess Open in April. Hopefully I'll get an event in May. And then it's a fairly light year because I am not playing the Grand Chess Tour. I'll play the Olympiad, maybe. And if some new tournament turns up, I might go for that.

After all these years of complaining that the schedule was heavy, if I spend this year complaining, it doesn't make sense. So I thought I'll just go with the flow, keep working, keep training and also enjoy more time at home.

Check out footage from the current Japanese staging ofBenny Andersson and Bjrn Ulvaeus' musical Chess, starring Tony nominee Ramin Karimloo (Les Misrables, Anastasia) and Samantha Barks (Pretty Woman, Les Misrables). The production plays in Osaka through January 28 before heading to the Tokyo International Forum Hall C February 19.

Karimloo plays Anatoly with Barks (soon to star in Frozen in London) as Florence, Luke Walsh (Rock of Ages) as Freddie, Takanori Sato as the Arbiter, Eliana as Svetlana, and Hideya Masuhara as Molokov.

Nick Winston directs and choreographs the musical overseas. Chess tells a story of love and political intrigue, set against the background of the Cold War in the late 1970s-early 1980s, in which superpowers attempt to manipulate an international chess championship for political ends.

The 1984 musical features music by ABBA songwriters Andersson and Ulvaeus and lyrics by Tim Rice. The original 1986 London production ran for nearly three years in the West End. Despite a two-month Broadway run in 1988, Chess has amassed a legion of fans who are drawn to its operatic rock score that features such songs as I Know Him So Well, Nobodys Side, Someone Elses Story, Pity the Child, and the stand-out single, One Night in Bangkok.

I cannot wait for audiences to experience this new production, with an exceptional cast and orchestra delivering this iconic score. The innovative creative team and I will bring a fresh dynamic to this beloved political thriller to produce an electrifying night in the theatre.

The 1984 musical features music by ABBA songwriters Andersson and Ulvaeus and lyrics by Tim Rice. The original 1986 London production ran for nearly three years in the West End. Despite a brief, two-month Broadway run in 1988, Chess has amassed a legion of fans who are drawn to its operatic rock score that features such songs as I Know Him So Well, Nobodys Side, Someone Elses Story, Pity the Child, and the stand-out single, One Night in Bangkok.

Michael Mayer directs the semi-staged concert presentation of the operatic pop-rock musical that features a revised book by Danny Strong.

Iranian chess referee Shohreh Bayat remains scared to return home to her family over headscarf controversy – CNN International

Currently the chief adjudicator at the Women's World Chess Championship held in Russia and China, Shohreh Bayat says she fears arrest after a photograph of her was taken during the event and was then circulated online in Iran.

"They are very sensitive about the hijab when we are representing Iran in international events and even sometimes they send a person with the team to control our hijab," Bayat told CNN Sport in a phone interview Tuesday.

Bayat said she had been wearing a headscarf at the tournament but that certain camera angles had made it look like she was not.

"If I come back to Iran, I think there are a few possibilities. It is highly possible that they arrest me [...] or it is possible that they invalidate my passport," added Bayat.

"I think they want to make an example of me."

'A very hard situation'

The photographs were taken at the first stage of the chess championship in Shanghai, China, but Bayat has since flown to Vladivostok, Russia, for the second leg between Ju Wenjun and Aleksandra Goryachkina.

She was left "panicked and shocked" when she became aware of the reaction in Iran after checking her phone in the hotel room.

The 32-year-old said she felt helpless as websites reportedly condemned her for what some described as protesting the country's compulsory law.

Subsequently, Bayat has decided to no longer wear the headscarf.

"I'm not wearing it anymore because what is the point? I was just tolerating it, I don't believe in the hijab," she added.

"People must be free to choose to wear what they want, and I was only wearing the hijab because I live in Iran and I had to wear it. I had no other choice."

Bayat says she sought help from the country's chess federation. She says the federation told her to post an apology on her social media channels.

She agreed under the condition that the federation would guarantee her safety but she said they refused.

"My husband is in Iran, my parents are in Iran, all my family members are in Iran. I don't have anyone else outside of Iran. I don't know what to say, this is a very hard situation," she said.

CNN contacted the Iranian Chess Federation on Tuesday but has yet to receive a response.

FIDE, the international federation for chess, has provided support to Bayat saying it leaves "total freedom to the individual" when it comes to religious symbols or clothing.

However, due to the law being enforced by the Iranian government, FIDE said the situation escapes its influence.

"In FIDE we respect all cultures, but above everything, we respect the individual's freedom of choice," FIDE said in a statement sent to CNN.

"And it is solely a decision of Ms. Bayat: wearing or not the headscarf is ultimately her choice, which we will duly respect as it is in no way contradicts FIDE statutes.

"She is a great professional, one of our best international arbiters and the first woman arbiter in Asia to reach the highest category in her field.

"We regret that she finds herself in this situation, and she will have our support whatever she does."

She asked for help from the chess federation and they asked her to write an apology. She agreed on the condition after they assured her that the federation protected her but they refused.

SLU Chess Looks Ahead to Final Four – The University News

The SLU chess team finished 2019 with a string of high finishes in recent tournaments. They now look forward to the Presidents Cup, or Final Four, the collegiate national championship of chess in early April.

After taking the Midwest Collegiate Chess and Blitz Championships in October, the team travelled to China in November and took third place at the World Prestigious University Chess Invitational, placing ahead of prestigious universities such as Harvard and Oxford. The team also defeated its host, Nankai University.

SLU chess team coach and grandmaster Alejandro Ramirez, the first grandmaster from Central America, stated that this was the teams first time competing internationally as a team, although most of the teams members have competed extensively as individuals in the past.

Then, SLU finished again in third place at the competitive Pan-American Intercollegiate Chess Tournament, which determines which teams compete in the Presidents Cup in New York. The Pan-American Tournament is different from most collegiate chess tournaments in its structure.

Ramirez explained, Its a very unforgiving tournament, simply because its a very short event. Tournaments of this strength are usually nine rounds long, which gives a little more wiggle room for mistakes In this case we had it really rough. We got defeated by Texas Tech, which is one of the best universities in the country, and the fact that we got matched in the last round with number one by rating, which is Webster University.

SLU went on to defeat Webster, which has won five of the last seven national championships, in the last round of the Pan-American Tournament. SLU Chess Team grandmaster Alex Ipatov, currently ranked 142nd amongst active players in the world by the International Chess Federation, defeated Aleksander Lenderman, ranked 131st, of Webster, which Ramirez said was the highlight of the tournament. Ipatov commented, [Beating Webster] felt very good. They are our arch-rivals and the highest ranked collegiate team in the nation. We are second.

In 2018, SLU placed fourth at the Presidents Cup. Fellow St. Louisian Webster University also qualified, whose team has won the Presidents Cup five times in the last seven years. SLU will again face off against Webster and Texas Tech, as well as the University of Texas at Dallas in New York this April. In contrast to other tournaments, the Presidents Cup features only classical chess, in which matches can last for hours as opposed to minutes in blitz or other formats. In addition, teams aggregate scores are as important to winning the tournament as victory in individual matches.

Founded in 2015, the team has expanded from five to thirteen members, which allows them to field multiple sets of players within a single tournament. The SLU Chess Team features six male and two female grandmasters. Ramirez commented that the team has also grown closer and developed more chemistry in a relative short period of time since its founding.

Another factor conducive to the teams success and in attracting new talent is St. Louiss chess environment. Ramirez said, Theres no other city that has the current chess ambiance in the U.S. or maybe in the world. I think for chess players its kind of a mecca. Theres always top level chess, lectures, opportunities we have the resources to be one of the best.
