Olympiad in Baku
The 42nd Chess Olympiad is the most lavish in the history of chess. The budget for the tournament is said to be 13.3 million Euros. The playing venue is the Chrystal Hall in Baku, and yesterday, 1st September, the splendid opening ceremony showed how high the standards of the organisers are. President Ilham Aliyev was present at the event but it was not allowed to take pictures of him.

Report by Chanda Boyd
It seems that the records of previous Olympiad in Tromso (2014) remained alive, as in the Open Section the following teams finally didn’t arrived: British Virgin Islands, Burundi, Cameroon, Central Africa Republic, Djibouti, Eritrea, Gambia, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Mali, Rwanda, Senegal, Seychelles and Sierra Leone. So, from the initial 181 registered teams, we have in the end 166, so the Tromso record of 172 is still valid! On the Women Section we had the withdrawal of Central African Republic, Djibouti, Kenya, Liberia, Rwanda, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Syria and Uganda. So, from the initial 140 registered teams we have in the end 131, so again the Tromso record of 133 is still valid. What really looks ugly is that out of the 24 teams that didn’t made it to Baku, 22 come from Africa; a clear sign that much help and care should be given…

Round One Report:
The long anticipated 42nd World Chess Olympiad began today at the beautiful Baku Chrystal Hall with the games of the first round.
A record breaking 180 teams compete in the Open Section, while the Women Section has 140 teams participating.
President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev opened the first round of Chess Olympiad by making the honorary move 1.d4 in the game Shakhriyar Mamedyarov – Rodwell Makoto of the match Azerbaijan-Zimbabwe.
Joining the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan were FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov and other officials.
During the live broadcast, President Aliyev said: “I am very glad that everybody is happy, that everybody is satisfied. Yesterday we had an excellent opening ceremony. Today the competition starts. The whole world is in Baku. And it is a record number of countries participating at the Olympiad. I am glad that all the organizing issues have been resolved and I hope that during these two weeks all our new guests will also find time to see around, to know the country and to come back as tourists.”
As usual in the events run by Swiss pairing system, the top seeded teams faced the lower rated opposition.
Most of the world’s best players participating in the Olympiad sat out of the first round which included Nigeria’s youngest FIDE Master FM Anwuli Daniel. However, Azerbaijan started with the top lineup to convincingly defeat Zimbabwe 4-0.
Russia won by the same result against Nigeria. The games replay are below
