First round and first move

ShishkinIt’s an open secret that if you have anything important to speak to FIDE President you can meet Kirsan Ilyumzhinov in the museums where the works of the famous painter Ivan Shishkin are shown.

The first move of FIDE Women Grand Prix in Dilijan was honored to FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov. After that noticeable moment the President and many officials walked through the building where our great event was being held.

At the same time the participants had already been in strong competition in the museum of town Dilijan. And it seems an interesting tradition to organize the highest tournaments in the museums (Anand-Gelfand Match in Moscow, Grand Prix in Tashkent, Alyokhin Memorial and others).    

As the old game of chess is both an art and a science we just need to give an opportunity to all players to create in a cultural atmosphere.
