This is all new to me. It sounds like you're saying FIDE will fade and other organizations will gain more recognition in terms of sponsoring the most significant tournaments. Will there continue to be a world champion?
If you have talent, best to hire an agent to get the word out. The agent hires a promoter. The promoter hires an advertising firm. The advertising firm needs to hire all the 2nd parties. 2nd parties need to hire the shakers and movers, those that pay under the table in backroom deals. It's how things get done. Free enterprise at it's best.
That is until the Government catches up to ya and wants all that shady money everybody made for themselves.
I'm never surprised at how terrible FIDE is, but wow...
I second lovlas #14.
I also remember strong accusations that Kirsan (edit to clarify: FIDE's president himself) was a major shareholder of the company that bought all of FIDE's events rights. But I don't know much about the outcome.
