Behind the stage
A View on the Organising Team of the Chess Classic Mainz

18.08.2007 - 762 participants in the Ordix Open, 280 in the FiNet Chess960 Open, a simul, two World Championships, a computer tournament, children tournaments: The Chess Classic Mainz are one of the biggest chess events in the world. While Hans-Walter Schmitt, organizer and driving force behind the event, is most often in the limelight, a lot of people working behind the stage take care that the tournament runs smoothly. Here's a view behind the stage.

Taming the Tigers:Chess Classic Organizer Hans-Walter Schmitt

The press room, meeting point of the journalists: From here German and international journalists report about the events in Mainz. Reports for the internet age fast, people in Mainz play from 10:00 in the morning till late at night and thus there's almost always someone sitting in the press room. Work usually ends shortly before midnight when security closes the room.

Particularly busy and a regular guest at all great chess tournaments: Vijay Kumar. The Indian journalist works for several Indian newspapers, TV and radio stations to report about Anand and other chess stars from India. If you visit the press center in the morning, Vijay is already there, if you leave a few minutes before midnight, he's still there.

The Chess Classic take care of children. They can play in a special room while Dad and Mum or both play chess.

A favorite place of the Chess Classic Team. Only members of the organising team have access and three friendly ladies always offer coffee, cake and snacks.

Important and tricky: Transmitting the games to the public and on the internet. If things go wrong, everyone takes notice, if everything runs smoothly, no one cares.

Thilo Gubler and his helpers Stefan Späth and Carsten Straub take care that the computers run smoothly.

Lost your wallet, no idea when the tournament starts, who to get a hotel room in Mainz, or where in Mainz you are after all, where to register for the tournament, to whom to talk why and when? The information desk - picture Anna Schütte - helps.

If want to show that you are a chess tiger after the end of the tournament can buy t-shirts of all sizes, baseball caps, coffee cups posters and, of course, the cute little tigers in the shop.
