Medvedev sends Telegram to Chess Olympiad Winners



Hi everybody!

I want to share with you the telegram I just got from Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

It's in Russian, but I will translate it for you:

Dear Friends,

I am glad to congratulate you on your impressive success at the 39th World Chess Olympiad.

At the competition in Khanty-Mansiysk you have shown mastery, stamina and true team spirit. All chess lovers in Russia rooted for you, and you did not let them down.

I especially would like to mention the triumph of our women's team. Winning all its matches, for the first time in the modern history of Russia, the team climbed to the top level of the chess Olympiad podium. Today the whole country is truly proud of your success.

Wishing you success and new bright accomplishments,

D. Medvedev

    Thats so Cool,
    "All chess lovers in Russia rooted for you" and many others all over the world.

    I actually spent a most enjoyable evening last night going over a few of your games. Blessings, BB.

    How is it possible to trademark a term like "Chess Queen"?

    Hi mtheory!

    It was possible and registered with the U.S. government.
    You can read more about it on the page:

    Now "Chess Queen" is my brand, legally registered.

    Somewhat similar to "Burger King".
    Nobody says "but MacDonalds is the true Burger King!", everybody knows that's it's a trademark.

    Best wishes,
    Alexandra :-)
