Ketchup, you should try this new handy thing on the internet. It's called the "Link": It works like this... Pretty fancy, don't you think? I'm sure it will revolutionize the web!

As for the GP, the four tournaments are all in Eastern Europe:
Baku, Azerbaijan
Tashkent, Uzbekistan
Tehran, Iran
Moscow, Russia

Next two Chess Olympics?
Baku, Azerbaijan
Batumi, Georgia.

FIDE is a Russian dominated organization now. They don't even hide it any more...
