Open Letter To The Chess Community

Dear Sirs,

I would like to point out that recent Ethics Commity decision on Yazici and TCF did not surprise me at all.FM Roberto Rivello's commity's decision is full of illogical points and contains confusion about identities of chess players. In year 2009 when Yazici started to collect the notorious undertaking, at that time EC rejected my appeal,claiming that my wife who was about to take part in Baltic Queen tournament did not appeal them by herself. Either they do not keep records or they are so much away from chess,in their decision it is stated that the tournament was in year 2008 and I, GM Atalik has played the above mentioned close WGM tournament which is very funny. Whatever they have done, for EC any federation can do anything on their players, at the end it will be considered as an internal affair. They may also change the rules and may come up by their own, it looks like EC stands only for judging chess players,not for officials and never for FIDE executives as you may see the following complaint of mine is not even registered about IM Makropoulos.

By the support of people like EC members, Yazici and Makropoulos are spoiled and they transform our noble game and its circles for their benefits and feed the system with their own people. A good example is that Mr.Surov from is considered to be no journalist for them and he can not even become a guest nor spectator for the olympiad. Yazici started by rejecting his best players from olympiad, continued with arbiters of some of the best countries. In this point I am really curious to ask why Mr.Nikolopoulos whose chess qualities are really obscure to me is getting main arbiter position in several organisations. The same is valid for WGM Karlovich,who will act as a press attachée in the olympiad while Mr.Surov will not be allowed to use facilities of the olympic venue as a press member.

What about the chess players?I Really felt pity when I have read new reborn Turkish GM ?patov's interview.I believe there is nobody left who did not receive thanks by him even Giorgos (George) Makropoulos had twice. I myself want to attract your attention to the game Ipatov-Yilmaz from Moscow D close tournament 2012 and you may draw conclusion as they say... If it is not enough for you just check for new WGM Yildiz where she made her last norms in Vasylshyn and Vorobets memorials in 2011 especially in the latter she had the incredible algorythm of pairings, first playing aginst untitled players then FMs and eventually IMs. Conceivably the main character in the show is GM Mikhalchishin from the same city. I even do not want to touch the series of Angora tournaments but you may understand my general opinion about people who took part in these especially the so called Turkish National Team members where the ratio of Turks are getting quickly diminished.

Best regards
GM Suat Atalik

  • Open Letter to Chess Community

    Concerning the fact that I have adressed to ACP on my case with Turkish CF and Greek CF on 10/7/2012 and heard from them after almost a month on 7/8/2012,their reaction time  is too long while the dammage created by Mr.Yazici and Mr.Makropulos is not ceased.

  • The interview with ACP representatives published in 40th Chess Olympiad's official site contains some abusive parts concerning my name therefore I have felt the urge to respond:

    1) I am a member of ACP since its foundation in the year of 2003, and I have become a member because of its name Association of Chess Professionals. I simply have to mention that the name became deceptive and over my 35 years career I have never heard about a chess professional called Yuri Garrett.

  • Dear Mr. Yuri 'the 9 Euros per day' Vovk,

    You claim that you were not cheating and transformed to be a 'clean' player after the year of 2009. Possibly you would like to share with us in which tournaments and games you did this and who were your partners in crime? Then I may really understand from your arrangements which chess players were eventually hurt. Unfortunately it is very easy to confess these when you know that anyway you will run away with them.

  • Dear Mr. Atalik!

    "Dear Mr. Yuri 'the 9 Euros per day' Vovk"

    I seem not to be an Indian, a boxer or a dog (although I am a wolf). Nobody has a right to call me that way. You have no right to give me any such like nickname. Your behaviour is rood.

  • Suat Atalik has answered ACP's open letter after the first ever match between the married couple has been finished in Greece. GM noted that the ACP's answer was released after almost a month.

  • FIDE Ethics Comission (EC) gave its decision related to "Suat Atalik's participation in Golden Sands tournaments in Bulgaria". The general document, also containing EC decisions on other issues is published on the FIDE site today. 

  • After GM Suat Atalik got an apologizing letter from the organizers of the tournament held in Kavala - in which they said that he will be allowed to play in the competition - GM appealed to the FIDE Ethics Committee.

  • Dear Mr. Atalik,

  • Dear Arkady Vladimirovich and Dear Ilya Vladislavovich!

    I would like to tell you about my outrageous experience as a Russian journalist at this time of the Olympiad in Istanbul. As one of the FIDE’s leaders, Mr. Ali Nihat Yazici, with sufferance of Mr. Makropoulos and Mr. Ilyumzhinov, are violating not only their slogan «We are one family» but also my rights as a journalist and human.

  • Е.SUROV: It’s 18:07 MSK Time, I’m Evgeny Surov and I’m talking to Ekaterina Atalik – a chess player, WGM and GM Suat Atalik’s wife, who is quite famous these days. However, the issues that put his case in the top stories of recent days is not funny at all, I would say they brought him wider fame than earlier. Katya, hello!

    E.ATALIK: Good evening!

    E.SUROV: Do you agree with what I have just said?
