To FIDE President Mr. Kirsan Ilyumzhinov
May 29, 2008

Awaiting FIDE determination regarding the bid made by Mr. Oleksandr Chernenko for the Kamsky-Topalov match and the official contract from FIDE that determines the rights and obligations of both players, on behalf of Gata Kamsky I would like to address disturbing rumors that are being spread in press by Aleksey Shirov.

Since Gata Kamsky intends to play against Vaselin Topalov and did not officially decline to play against him, it is inappropriate for A. Shirov to offer his candidacy before official FIDE resolution on that issue has been made.

Accordingly please provide a working draft of the documents that FIDE anticipates GM Kamsky and GM Topalov to execute. Should you have any questions do not hesitate to contact Bella Kamskaya, Esq., at bkkrupnicklaw(at)
