Chessdom informs about one of decisions taken by the FIDE General Assembly, that has recently taken place in Istanbul. It accepted Serbian chess federation proposal to establish a special Fair-play prize which will be named after the legendary grandmaster Svetozar Gligoric who has recently passed away.

The Congress delegates asked the commission under Boris Kutin to develop criteria of this prize.

The Serbian chess federation proposal says: "Grandmaster Svetozar Gligoric got the fine reputation not only for his results and successes, but even more because of his fair-play manners towards his opponents. He highly respected his chess rivals. Therefore, he never looked at the chess game only through the eyes of a simple result. His approach was almost philosophical, because of his main principle – I am not playing against a man, but against chess pieces".
