as well as to the Classical World Chess Champion
a written offer with a guaranteed fee of US $ 1,000,000 (net)
(US $ 500,000 for each of the two players). The match was to be organised from 25 November to 17
December 2006 under the title "World Chess Match of the Champions". There were to be 14 classical
games. The offer, which was accepted by Mr Kramnik, has been rejected by Mr Topalov.
