Kirsan gives thumbs-up to Guernsey for 2015 and the Small Nations (pictured here with Fred Hamperl the Small Nations Tournament Organiser) Fiona Naftel manager of Les Cotils with Kirsan. On Sunday 15 June 2014 (Father's Day!) FIDE President Kirsan Ilyumzhinov visited Guernsey to see Small Nations 2015 venue. Kirsan Ilyumzhinov stood in the little chapel in the same spot that Max Euwe and Boris Spassky did many years before. Fred and Kirsan play a game of blitz (he sacrifices a piece for a perpetual check draw in the Kalashnikov) Kirsan and Fred in the grounds of Les Cotils.
