INTERVIEW WITH MARK DUTTON, CHIEF ARBITER PDF Print E-mail

By Zeljka Malobabic, The 2006 Canadian Chess Championship, Toronto

 

How do you feel?

 

I feel exhausted, but exceedingly happy.

 

What does the Canadian Zonal 2006 tournament mean to you?

 

It meant the crown of the new Canadian Champion and once again handing off the torch to a younger individual and in this particular tournament a junior who I watched grow up in Toronto since the beginning of his chess career. Igor is a peer of my son. It was particularly happy for me to see how his father Ranko showed up with camera in hand. You could not wipe the smile off his face. In addition we crowned two new FMs Shiyam Thavandiran and Jonathan Tayar, who once again I saw when they took their first chess lessons in Toronto . And of course, Vicente Lee Jr is Canada ’s newest IM. We are thrilled to see his success taking back his title to Alberta . It was a successful completion of one of the eight zonal tournaments which takes place in the world. Every round started on time and every round was incident free. There was no need to call the appeals committee.

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