No doubt that we've all read the Chessbase report on Campo's car accident in Turkey. I know some of our readers don't exactly like the Old Man very much, but I think we can at least be gracious enough to wish the former FIDE boss a speedy recovery.
The TCF are apparently looking after Campo. This report in ABS-CBN quotes Alli Nihat Yazici: "We would like to inform the Board of FIDE and the world of chess that the Turkish Chess Federation, governor of Antalya and mayor of Kemer will take care of our honorary president."
I met Campo only once, in 1999, when he was here for the QVB Chess Festival. Whatever anyone can say about him, I found him quite likable and gracious. Sydney personality and ex-Olympiad captain Peter Parr is another fan. All the best to Campo.
