Kamsky – Topalov in Lviv?

another sponsor to bid for the event

Alexander Chernenko, Gata Kamsky’s manager, claims in an interview with Russian “Sport Express” that match Kamsky-Topalov will take place in Lviv, Ukraine, for a prize fund “several times bigger” than 250.000 USD offered from Bulgarian sponsors.

As Chernenko told Yuri Vasiliev, who is very well informed journalist, the deal is “99.9% certain”, but he will publicly announce the details upon the bank guarantees arrival. Ukranian Chess Federation and Lviv City administration will coordinate the event.

Silvio Danailov, Veselin Topalov’s manager, was supposedly contacted on the same day but he didn’t comment on the speculation. He only used this opportunity to praise Kamsky’s warm personality and chess abilities.
