Default The 2004 World Chess Championship in Libya: what a desolation!

The NAO Chess Club and its President, Nahed Ojjeh, would like to express
their disagreement and affliction regarding the organisation of the current
FIDE World Chess Championship, which has turned into a second-rate
championship.


Ojjeh certainly had the $1.5M to put up, to hold the tourney in Paris. It would
have won the bidding process effortlessly.

I wouldn't like to underestimate Mrs. Nahed Ojjeh. But...
Could you compare Madame Chaude de Silans' club "Caissa" and "NAO" acronym
for "Nahed Ojjeh"? If you compare only the club's names, you can conclude
that the primary interest of the club Caissa was chess promotion...
Can you compare the level of education of these ladies? Or chess strength?
I would cite some texts about Madame Chaude:

------
Madame Chaudé de Silans was Women's Champion of France
in 1933 at the age of 14; led for two-thirds of the Women's World
Championship Tournament, Moscow 1949-50, before falling ill and
finishing 5-7th (out of 16); and competed in three subsequent Women's
Candidates Tournaments, where she finished 8-10th (out of 16) at
Moscow 1952, 10-13th (out of 20) at Moscow 1955, and 12-14th (out of
17) at Vrnjacka Banja, Yugoslavia, 1961. In 1950, she represented
France in both the men's and women's Olympiads..
--------

Here is one of her games. You can enjoy in brilliance of Madame Chaude.

More twaddle.

Why would Mrs. Ojjeh, who despises Ilyumzhinov, waste her money on a stupid
format for which the FIDE fuehrer would get the credit?
