For those waiting for a united Over the Board world champion under one accepted organization...don't hold your breath! Three very dysfunctional but powerful groups are standing in the way of this.
1. Corporate sponsers seeking to profit from the game
2. The top 20-30 players (with very large ego's) seeking to secure there place in the history of the game
3. Chess organizers who are very concerned with keeping there place of power within the organization.
Trying to get these three groups to agree on anything, chess related, would be much like attempting to train 100 mice to march in single file. It's just not going to happen! I think world chess organizations such as the FIDE will become like boxing in America, ie: several organizations, each with there own champion, all manuvering for credibility.
