Fabrice MAGGIORE wrote:Good evening with all,

First of all before addressing to me to you Mr. ELENBAAS and Mrs. BUBBI, I allow myself to draw your attention to copy-sticking it this anonymity which reproduced my post emitted on the site of the FFJD towards the forum of the FMJD. If I had wanted that it appears to with it, I could do it myself; each one has its own reasons and convictions to make what it likes.

I also draw the attention of Mr. Jacques PERMAL to the inopportunity to diffuse photographs without the approval of sound or his authors, infringement punished by the French Penal code. I am also saddened by the behavior of Mr. PERMAL who used this mistake at my place. I add that these mutiposts daily versed on the various sites (and in particular its post followed by my photograph) has as as result to irritate a good number of French damists who quite simply drew aside it considering his narrow-mindedness.

I am really sorry to use this space to position back the things, remarks certainly painful but necessary from time to time. Now that the things are said, as regards the subject itself, I allowed myself to make a comparison between an incomplete list emitted by the office of the FMJD and that of Mr. ELENBAAS.

What leads me to develop several interrogations:

Firstly: how members of such a large Confederation in term of distance can know as the aforementioned confederation does not have to pour its right of affiliation. I draw your attention that here in America, the damic nations only meet very episodically.

Secondo: I rather seldom traverse the forum of the FMJD and I did not follow all your discussions. All the more written in English or Dutch, it is very difficult to have a translation right while passing by a software, which led me to take with the first degree your Joke as you said. I amndt sorry for this incomprehension.

Thirdly: Can you Mrs. BUBBI inform me on Confération Panaméricaine concerning the reason on the presence of the countries BRAZIL, CURACAO and HAITI on your list?

Fourthly: Can you explain me Mr. ELENBAAS the evocation of the 13th PANAM in Montreal in July 2005 to precisely know 3 the qualified additional ones whereas in my opinion, that of HAITI 2004 should be taken more especially as there was no information having milked with three qualified additional by the means of the zonal one of Montreal and that in my opinion it is really late to take Vacation and to reserve very expensive plane tickets in three months of the expiry.

Quinto: I benefit from it to expose the case of the Guadeloupe which forms integral part of the Pan-American zone since it took part in the majority of the zonal ones. Can one hope for a participation of this country in the Championship of the world because of his membership in the aforementioned zone. You will understand easily that it is very difficult with a player inhabitant of Guadeloupe to take part in the French competitions. I want of it for proof that it is impossible for us to propose a team for a participation out of Cut of France. Can one hope for an evolution of this particular case when one realizes certain derogatory exemptions if I then to say in favour of dominant nations. As recalled by Mrs. BUBBI, it is a Championship of the planetary world.

While waiting to read you, please receive Madam, Mister my sincerity. Sincerely. Fabrice MAGGIORE
Dear Mr. Maggiore,
The picture my young friend Jacques used is part of the FMJD Album. [ http://fmjd.org/bb/album.php ] It was sent to us by the ones who made the photos in Haiti. I'm not sure who actually shot your specific picture, but certainly it must have been Hensley Rondei of Curaçao or Lélio Marcos of Brasil.

Sorry that it irritated you, but I'm certain that to irritate was not Jacques' intention.

If you place your opinion on the forum of the FFJD, than anyone can assume that it is not a private opinion anymore. So if you don't like to be quoted, don't write something on a forum.
But I think it is good that you wrote what you did. In Amsterdam people say 'Don't make a murder grave from your heart' and according to me that is often a wise attitude in life.

That two people, Anthony Alexandre and Louicéus Shang Wong qualified in the 12th PanAm in Haiti 2004 was written to me by Mr. Raoul Alias, president of the PADCF.
When FMJD stated 5 people from America could qualify for the world championship in Amsterdam I concluded/guessed that besides Alexandre and Wong, the other three had to qualify in the 13th PanAm in Montréal in July. Seems logic to me, but you never know with the FMJD.

I hope in Montréal you can raise above yourself, so that you can qualify for the world championship. In that case we will meet in October.
Good luck to you!

PS: It's a nice picture! You won that game?

Photos of CAP-HAITIEN has been taken by Organisation commitee of 2004 PANAM TOURNAMENT. Theses photos have been sent to FMJD. So FMJD FORUM can show them when there are dicussions about DRAUGHTS GAME.
Of course when you online your opinion in any forum, it isn't a private opinion.
Sometimes LE MONDE quoted opinion written in DER SPIEGEL............

I just want to add that every players of FRANCE know the high aggressivity rate of interventions of FABRICE MAGGIORE in FFJD FORUM.
It is very easy to broacast Critical opinions in FORUM (FFJD , FMJD....) but not easy to take initiatives in favor of our game. FABRICE MAGGIORE easily online bad opinions but has never fought for our game : He has never led a draughts association for instance.

Instead of criticize anyone, FABRICE MAGGIORE should send us results of GUADELOUPE tournaments.It would be more useful !!

On Forum FFJD (French Draughts Federation) dr. Malick Niang of Senegal writes that Ndiaga Samb and Macodou Ndiaye won't be there during next WC in Amsterdam:

Samb privé de mondial
Message envoyé par malickniang Le 07/06/2005 20:53:50

Le GMI Ndiaga Samb ne participera au championnat du monde individuel de jeu de dames qui aura lieu à AMSTERDAM en Hollande du 6 au 26 octobre 2005.
La faute à qui?
A la fois aux officiels sénégalais et à la FMJD.
Pour participer à ce mondial, il faut être champion d'Afrique où remporter le dernier championnat de son pays.
Pour ce qui est du Sénégal, il faut participer au Championnat régional de Dakar qui dure des mois, aprés c'est les préliminaires avec les 11 régions pour 15 jours encore à Dakar, vient enfin le championnat national pour 15 jours encore.
Un championnat qui dure pratiquement toute l'année, condition que ne peut remplir Ndiaga Samb et Maocodou Ndiaye qui sont à l'extérieur et des travailleurs comme moi qui du reste sommes nombreux.
La FMJD quant à elle au lieu d'organiser un championna d'Afrique et d'envoyer les meilleurs au mondial comme elle le faisait préfére cette année expérimenter le systéme des quotats.
Des maliens, guinéens et d'autres africains iront à la place des sénégalais.
Des gens qui n'allaient pas partir en Hollande, s'il y'avait un championat d'Afrique y seront conviés.
Des pays européens moins forts que le Sénégal auront 3 représentants, là où le Sénégal n'en aura que 1 où 2.
C'est de l'impérialisme qui ne dit pas son nom, n'est-ce pas cher Fabrice Maggiore, vous qui attendait la réaction des africains sur ce forum.
Là voici.

NEWS from DAKAR about BA and SAMB problems with national federation :

Ce tournoi s'est déroulé à Dakar au mois de mai 2005 et a été organisé par l'expert comptable sénégalais Tamsir Barry.
Ont participé à ce tournoi : Ba, Samb, Ndjofang et ques espoirs sénégal dont Aliou Dia et Nakh.
Quelques résultats :
Ba-Samb : 1-1
Ba-Ndjofang : 1-1
Ndjofang-Samb : 2-0
Classement :
1er Ba
2é Ndjofang
3é Samb
L'expert comptable Tamsir Barry est le chouchou des joueurs sénégalais, c'est leur mécène.
C'est Barry qui a payé de sa poche les billets d'avion aller et retour Hollande Sénégal, les frais d'hôtel, d'hergement, de nourriture de Ba, Samb et Ndjofang.
Il a payé également à Samb, Ba, Ndjofang et à tous les espoirs sénégalais qui ont participé à ce tournoi des primes et des récompenses.
C'est un gars qui à des moyents financiers énormes, rien que pour ce tournoi, il a déboursé des milliers d'euros.
Son cabinet prospére dans toute l'Afrique de l'Ouest.
Il a des marchés jusqu'en Europe.
A Plusieurs reprises les joueurs ont essayé de le porter à la tête de la fédération sénégalaise, mais en vain.
C'est le comité directeur qui élit le président de la fédération.
Le comité directeur est constitué des 11 présidents de ligues régionales, du délégué des joueurs et des coptés du ministre de la jeunesse et des sports, d'où la difficulté à élire Barry.
Les joueurs ne jurent que par son nom, il les a toujours aidé et soutenu.
Il a réguliérement organisé des tournois au Sénégal, la seule innovation de cette année, c'est qu'il y a associé les Ba, Samb et Ndjofang.
La fédération sénégalaise est dirigée par un ingénieur en télécomunication qui a un cabinet actuellement qui a également des moyenens financiers mais qui n'égale pas encore Barry sur le plan disponibité et largesse.
Ce que les autorités reprochent à Barry, c'est son manque de considération à leur égard.
Pour eux Barry les considére pour quantité négligeable.
Il se permet d'organiser un tournoi international, sans aviser la tutelle et les y associer.
Si Barry avait informé les officiels, la fédération Sénégalaise pourrait faire valider le tournoi par la FMJD.
Si les les autorités ne reviennent pas à de meilleurs sentiments, c'est une équipe à base locale qui ira à Turin.
Une sanction lourde et extrême aux conséquences incalculables dont les seuls perdants sont les joueurs sans défense et sans protecteurs.
Une géguerre, un conflit qui ne regarde nullement.
Je lance ici un appel à la FMJD pour qu'elle n'entérine pas cette mascarade sénégalaise.

They want information, then critical if come given, even if recognize, are partial.
Names are known, but FMJD waited for written communications official, from Federations and Confederations.
The Federations that not are you see Panamerica or Africa, are not present why they have not poured the affiliation tax.
The 2 Confederations know it and agree.
Oceania has right to a place being one country Australia and also a continent.
A championship of the world previews the world, not only the force of the players.
The only correct information is those that come given from the members of the CD of the FMJD.
That’s all, until 2 July.

But J.M FILHO won F. FORBIN yesterday. He must be very strong !
You remember the Brasilian grandmaster José Léandro, Jacques? This José Maria Filho is said to be the pupil of Léandro.

José Leandro in the World Championship 1986 scored only 3 points in 19 games, but in 1988 he became grandmaster after having scored 21 out of 19 in the WC.
It was a great performance of Leandro; he losed only 2 games (Mam. N'Diaye and Issalene) and won 4 games.
No loses against Russian and Dutch players !
Hanco, you know if he stopped play dammen? if yes...pity

Jose Maria Silva Filho
will represent Brazil in the WC in Amsterdam
</center>

Lélio Marcos, the great Draughtpromoter from Sao Paulo, Brasil, writes:

I saw in the FMJD forum some questions about José Leandro Teixeira Borba.
Let me explain you some details.
José Maria Silva Filho was 7 times brazilian champion.
José Leandro Teixeira Borba just 1 time.
José Maria Silva Filho lives in São Luís city, capital of Maranhão province, 3.200 km far from São Paulo city, around 3.000 km far from Rio de Janeiro city. And he is not rich person.
José Leandro Teixeira Borba lives in Brasília city, brazilian capital and he has good economic life.
Both are strong players.
José Maria Silva Filho never read a book !! He is natural talent.
José Leandro read a lot of books.
Both are my friends. Good friends.
José Maria Silva Filho didn´t get so many oportunities to play outside Brazil. Now I started to support him. So, I had rights to play WC 2005 because I played in Haiti but I gave my place for him. He will play in Amsterdam coming October.
José Leandro Teixeira is still playing but in the last 10 years he just played team competitions in 64 squares. Normally he doesn´t play personal competitions only team competitions.
Today José Leandro Teixeira is very busy with his work. He has no time. So, difficult for him to take part in competitions.
In my site www.topdam.com.br when you visit gallery photos you will see many pictures of brazilian players.
If you want any kind of information about brazilian players, please, ask me. I know all the brazilian players. Everyone !!

By Panamerican Federation laws for a player to take part in the WC the country of this player must take part in the Panamerican Championship.
Because this I played in Haiti. Few days before the Panamerican Championship in Haiti José Maria Silva Filho told me he could not go. So, I played. Only for Brazil be present.
In this case, Brazil has right to play in the W.C. and Brazil can indicate another player. And I´m indicating José Maria Silva Filho also because I can´t go to Amsterdam next October.
I can´t go out Brazil during the final of our team competition and this year this final will be from 15 to 22 October.

In www.topdam.com.br you can go to gallery photos and find many photos about brazilian draughts as this one from 1996:


Serafino Ongaro, Klayton Thomaz (payed Juniors Championship in Italy), José Leandro Teixeira Borba and Genaldo Gonzaga da Silva (played WC in Italy, Trento).
Strong team in our team competition.
The name of this team was Guarulhos but they are not more playing for Guarulhos. They now play for differents teams.

7. The official rules and regulations of the FMJD will be in full force. The use of clocks and the notation of the individual games is mandatory. The games will be played in the official Fischer-time rate of 50 moves in the first 2 hours and one hour till the end of the game (for each player). A player is said to be in ‘time shortage’ when he has 5 minutes or less to go before time control. Conform the FMJD regulations players are not allowed to agree on a draw before they both made 40 moves. In case of transgression if this rule, the referee is obliged to decide on a 0-0 result.
8. The final classification in both phases will be based on the total competition points obtained. The first place in the second phase gives right to the title of ‘World Champion 2005’.
9. If in the first or second phases two or more players and at the same place the following calculations will be
used to define their respective ranking:
- 1 the largest numer of points
- 2 the largest number of victories
- 3 the best result in +/- draws (*) throughout the particular round robin competition
- 4 the result(s) between the tied players
- 5 the best result obtained in the order of the classification.
- 6 the highest place for the player with the highest rating in last FMJD-list.
(*) When the result of a game is a draw and when there is a difference of 3 pieces or more (a king counting for two man, e.g. 2 kings and 1 man against 1 king) then the player with the majority gets an (administrative) plus (+); his opponent receives an administrative minus (-). In the final tournament ranking these pluses and minuses will be added up, and the results will be used to dicern between players tying the same place, following the order of priorities mentioned above.
10. A. If the titleholder again wins the title, the number two will be Challenger. In that case both players (and also the number three) have the right to participate in the World championship 2007.
B If the titleholder loses the title, he will be the Challenger. In that case the new champion, the Challenger and

Hi Michele,

If you want to have an answer you'd better contact Mrs. Bubbi or someone else from the technical commission of the FMJD.

There is written:
Costs for lodging and food of the players are borne by the organization. The players will be the guests of the organization from October 5 through October 24. The expected arrival date is October 5. The departure date is October 24. All players have to be present in the Opening- and Closing ceremony.

So why don't you want to have a free holiday in Amsterdam after your (possible) elimination? It might be exciting to see the Finals.
