Kasparov vs Ponomariov match from Sept. 19

By Our Chess Correspondent


Chennai July 20. The FIDE World chess championship match between title
holder Ruslan Ponomariov of Ukraine and No.1 ranked Garry Kasparov of Russia
will be played in Yalta in Ukraine from September 19.

FIDE confirms this World title match and also adds that the opening move
will be made by the Russian President Vladimir Putin in the presence of the
Leonid Kuchma, President of Ukraine.

In an interview a few days back, Kasparov thinks Ponomariov will have the
home advantage.

"It's clear it (venue) wouldn't be my first choice but I'm more interested
in it happening at all at this point.'' This match is the first part of the
World chess championship Re-unification plan.

The winner will be FIDE World champion and would play the winner of the
match between World classical champion Vladimir Kramnik and Peter Leko. The
winner of the re-unified champion will be the absolute world champion and
that was originally scheduled for November 2003 but it is running behind
schedule.

Nowadays, I never believe that any match is going to take place until the
antagonists have actually sat down at the table.
