MONROI RECEIVES FIDE CERTIFICATION PDF Print E-mail

Tbilisi , Georgia
February 26, 2005

 

The MonRoi system enables chess players to electronically record and store their games, thus allowing Internet users to follow worldwide chess tournaments in real-time.

 

The FIDE Presidential Board at its 1st quarter 2005, meeting in Tbilisi , 26-27 February 2005 reviewed FIDE’s Technical Commission report regarding the MonRoi system first deployed at the Montreal Chess Tournament. After considering the results and chess player feedback of the Category 10 GM /IM chess tournament, held in Montreal (Quebec, Canada) from January 14 to January 21, 2005, FIDE confirmed that the MonRoi patent pending system complies with chess rules and technical specifications and functions in a tournament environment as specified by FIDE.

 

The MonRoi Personal Chess Manager is FIDE certified and can be used in tournaments instead of the pen and paper recording method. MonRoi is well positioned to give chess federations the option to gradually migrate traditional manual chess tournament management to a single fully automated system in order to leverage the full benefit of live webcasts. FIDE greatly supports MonRoi's innovative technology that allows the chess world to easily exchange information in real-time, no matter where they are located, unifying the chess community.

 
PIONEERS IN WOMEN’S CHESS PDF Print E-mail

Female chess used to be regarded as something of a curiosity. A good Trivial Pursuits quiz is, ‘We know the first World Junior Chess Championship was held in Birmingham in 1951. When was the first World Girls Championship held?’ The answer is in 1927 and, of course, in England . Vera Menchik won it the same year as she went on to win the First Women’s World Championship. Presumably there was considerable interest in female chess in this era because Vera came to live in England . In truth, nearly all the entrants were British. The event died with the advent of the Second World War and was only revived in the 1970s. We had to wait for Harriet Hunt to win the World Girls Under 20 Championship 50 year after Rowena Drew (later Bruce). Elaine Saunders (now Pritchard) is one of the girls who gained the title before the Second World War and she is still very much alive, though not now playing chess competitively.

Chess Quotes


And for the chess-player the success which crowns his work, the great dispeller of sorrows, is named "combination."
