I have finalized all material for the 2021 Chess Calendar – 365 chess positions taken from FIDE world championship matches in the period 1993-2005 when the title was split and there was both a FIDE and a classical world champion. In 2006, the title was unified with the infamous match Kramnik – Topalov.
