Default Will USCF support Kamsky?

Kamsky won the world cup!! and now he plays topalov next year.

Will the USCF help fund/finance him towards training for the match and
getting a second?

Why should this be the role of the USCF rather than private sponsors?

USCF officers have more important things
on their mind, like how to blaim each other, etc.

1. The board should ask the members
how much should USCF donate toward
Kamsky's training, say: a -- $0; b -- $2K; etc.

2. USCF may start a fund; then members and
chess clubs would contribute to it if and as
they feel. Small chess clubs would donate
say $20, larger clubs would donate more.

But such a fund doesn't have to be
initiated by USCF. You may do it better.

Regards,

Wlod

I heard that Kamsky is going to be made to urinate soon in front of
three chess players.
This is political payback for something. He is going to have to pull
down his pants and pee
in a cup. So, it is hard for me to support somebody who pees for FIDE.

The USCF does not support chess.

Reportedly, Channing wants to use Life Member money for that purpose.
I mean, what do actuaries know anyway?

We're not talking chump change here. Kamsky evidently wants about
150K to provide coaching and 2 seconds for the match.

Why not empty the treasury for him. The members don't seem to care.

You can't empty what is already empty.
