Dear chess friends,

I feel really uncomfortable to ask for that on a chess website, but I have no one else to ask for help except chess community.

In October 2012 I gave birth to my daughter Ketevan. A month later she was diagnosed with pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect and major aorto-pulmonary collaterals. A complex surgery that can save her life should be made in Germany until the end of March.

I’m supported by all the closest people, but unfortunately that is not enough since the sum needed for the surgery is huge.
I am asking for any kind of financial help.

I would like to thank you in advance.

You can send money to:

Recipient: Salome Melia
Account number: GE57PC0193600100007067
Bank name: ProCredit Bank, Tbilisi, Georgia
Bank address: 21 Al. Kazbegi Ave., 0160 Tbilisi, Georgia.

UPD. You can also use PayPal to transfer money. The receiver: Olena Prusikin, email:

  • My mom was diagnosed with the malignant mediastinal tumor several days ago. Now the life has divided into "before" and "after." I'm only 19, but only I can look for the doctors, clinics and do anything that may help in this terrible situation.

    This is insanely hard, but I should do this - I should save life to my dearest person in the world.

  • I wish to express my heartfelt thanks to you for your helpfulness and kindness, solidarity and readiness to help. Thanks to you I've managed to gather the required funds to conduct the surgery to my daughter. Many helped anonymously, so without mentioning each and everyone - THANK YOU! And special thanks to the main sponsor.

  • Georgian Chess Federation (GCF) publishes an open letter asking why the president of the European Chess Union Silvio Danailov publicly supports the bid of African Cameroon, but not European Georgia for the Olympiad 2018. 

    Several days ago Danailov tweeted the "chess puzzle":   

  • E.SUROV: This is Chess-News and we are in Batumi. I am Evgeny Surov and the President of the Georgian Chess Federation Gia Girogadze is with me. How do you do.

  • I suggest you to think over this phrase:

  • The 6th round of the Georgian Men's Championship has finished in the Tbilisi Chess Palace. Unlike the previous round which was marked with a triumph of White (they won 5 out of 6 games), Round 6 finished in Black’s favor – 4 out of 6 games finished in their victory, other 2 games finished peacefully.
