Former World Champion runs for FIDE president

October 7th 2013 will become another historical day for Garry Kasparov and maybe for the whole chess world as well: the former world champion announced he will run for FIDE presidency in 2014. This happened during the 84th FIDE Congress held in Tallinn, Estonia. Practically all the delegates and heads of the International chess federation, except his rival in elections, were present as invited guests. 

We provided you with Тwitter coverage of the event (follow the link to see photos):

Lots of food. Guests are satisfied. They taste it and digest what they have just seen.

Jazz again. What a great choice!
