BREAKING NEWS STORY: David Levy accuses Raymond Keene of misappropriating 50,000 British pounds for Kasparov World Chess Championship match in London.
International Chess Master David Levy says that his partner, Grandmaster Raymond Keene, misappropriated 50,000 pounds from the Mind Sports Olympiad bank account in order to set up a rival organization called the Brain Games Network PLC, which is to sponsor a match for the World Chess Championship between Kasparov and an opponent, either Anand or Kramnik, for a purse of $2 million.
A press conference to announce the match is being held this morning in London.
Raymond Keene is the chess correspondent for three British papers, "The Times", "The Sunday Times" and "The Spectator". Keene has written more chess books than any living human.
