Livingston to sponsor Chess960 Computer World Championship

04.07.2005 - „With Livingston Electronic Services GmbH, we have found the ideal partner for the Chess Classic 2005 and especially for the Chess960 Computer World Championship“ says a happy Hans-Walter Schmitt, head of the Chess Tigers e.V., the team that organizes the Chess Classic. Livingston Electronic Services GmbH, located in Darmstadt, is Germany’s leading specialist for short and medium-term rentals of modern technology – whether it is IT hardware, test equipment, or presentation technology. Livingston therefore has a lot of experience in equipping large events like the Chess Classic. Livingston Electronic Services GmbH is part of Livingston Group, headquarted in Teddington near London.

And how exactly will the co-operation work? “Together with Livingston, we put together a package for the Chess Classic 2005. Our new partner Livingston will provide each programmer who participates in the Chess960 Computer World Championship with a state-of-the-art computer. And on top of that Livingston will support the Chess Classic 2005 with modern presentation technology and will also provide equipment for the press office.” explains Hans-Walter Schmitt.

„We were impressed by the fact that the Chess960 Computer World Championship is a truly international event with people from all over the world competing. And it is, or course, something special to be sponsoring a World Championship” explains Volker Mertens of Livingston Germany.

How did the partnership between the Chess Tigers and Livingston come about? “As organizers of the first official Computer World Championship in Chess960, we were looking for a way to provide participants with powerful computers for the duration of the event. We know, of course, that our programmers have high requirements for the hardware they use. With Livingston Electronic Services GmbH, we have found a partner who can deliver just what we need for the Computer World Championship: modern hardware at the right place and the right time, combined with the necessary support. The Chess Tigers are very happy about the fact that the first official Computer World Championship in Chess960 will be played on hardware provided by Livingston” explains Hans-Walter Schmitt. „We have been asked many many times whether we would be prepared to sponsor large events that require a lot of IT hardware, but the ideas of the Chess Tigers really impressed us “ explains Volker Mertens, head of sales of Livingston in Germany. “Of course, the name Bobby Fischer was familiar to me, but I had not heard of Fischer Random Chess or Chess960 before” he admits. “What really convinced me was the fact that in Chess960, it is not the opening database that wins the game, but the quality of the program that plays, the creativity of the programmer who developed it, and the speed of the hardware on which it runs.”

But Livingston will not only support the Chess960 Computer World Championship, it will also provide the Chess Classic with modern presentation technology to be used to present chess games to the spectators. And Livingston will equip the Chess Classic Cinema, which will introduce the visitors of the Chess Classic to movies and documentaries about chess and chess players. And the press office of the event, which will be used by journalists from all over the world to report on the Chess Classic will be equipped with hardware provided by Livingston.

„I do know how to play chess, but don’t consider myself a strong player“ admits Volker Mertens. “Maybe I should skip chess altogether and start with Chess960 right away” he says with a smile. “Looking at my diary, I just don’t see myself spending much time memorizing opening moves.”
