It was supposed to be today that we found out where and when the 2012 Men’s Chess Championship between Anand & Gelfand would occur. The process for selecting a host for this tournament has been extended another month until 31-July-2011.
The details can be found here: http://discusschess.com/bids-deadline-for-anand-gelfand-2012-extended.html . I just wanted to update my earlier article on this Chess Championship. Stanczyk thinks FIDE needs to be more flexible on their demands. I think they are snoozing on the job and need to wake up and smell the coffee. I hope someone in the USA can pull together a bid, I’d love to see a Chess Championship in person! OK, America its your move.
