Newly Re-elected Chess Federation President Takes Your Questions

Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, the president of the World Chess Federation, who was re-elected last week after a contentious campaign, will answer readers’ questions.

In recent years, Mr. Ilyumzhinov, who became president in 1995, has been criticized for failing to gain corporate sponsorship for tournaments and neglecting the development of new players and public interest in the game. His opponent in the last election, the former world champion Anatoly Karpov, ran on a platform of bringing professional management to the organization.

Readers can submit questions to chess@nytimes.com or leave them in the comments section below; a selection of them will be forwarded to Mr. Ilyumzhinov, who will provide written responses that will be published in the near future. Friday is the deadline for submissions.
