Kasparov returns to the world of chess

September 8 2009

Ex-world chess champion Garry Kasparov in 2005, announced his retirement from professional sports to politics, it seems, returns to the hobby.

As noted many times the media in 2009, Garry Kasparov, rarely participate in organized "Solidarity" events, virtually themselves aloof from any active policy. Moreover, Harry Kimovich gave way to full-time columnist "The Wall Streen Journal" colleague "Solidarity" Boris Nemtsov , who became during the absence of Kasparov mainly fronted by the liberal opposition.

Meanwhile, as soon as Kasparov can announce their return to chess. As it became known, the last six months the ex-champion is engaged in coaching, becoming a mentor 18-year old Norwegian prodigy Magnus Carlsen. This summer, chess legend and a rising star two weeks diligently engaged in Croatia, then there were lessons in Moscow, and now Harry Kimovich located in Norway.

Kasparov himself highly pleased with his new status, a mentor, considering that very soon his fighter could easily take first place in the world ranking. "In six months of working with him, I saw him a lot as a great champion," - said Garry Kasparov in an interview with the Norwegian media.

Apparently, this explains the absence of Kasparov, the Russian Information and the political field - coaching, plus participation in various tournaments (probably to recover its former shape) do not leave time for politics. The only thing that restrains Kasparov speech with an official statement regarding his departure from politics, a huge fashion the damage he would suffer "Solidarity".

Commenting in 2005 its intention to become a professional political activity, Kasparov said that in chess, "did everything he could, even more, and therefore intends to use its" intelligence and strategic thinking in Russian politics, "namely," to do everything possible to resist the dictatorship of Putin. " Of course, that care Kasparov could be interpreted his colleagues on the liberal opposition and journalists as a betrayal.

Thus, Garry Kasparov will not be officially out of "Solidarity". Likely to be announced that the leader of United Civil Front, will promote the image of "Solidarity" in the international arena, and the title of the informal leader of the opposition will go to Nemtsov.
