Description

The title of World Chess Champion means "The Strongest Chess Player on Earth".

In 1886, two masters played a long chess match. Most chess historians regard the Steinitz-Zukertort match as the first official World Chess Championship, because it started a grand tradition. Starting with Steinitz, the title of World Chess Champion has been handed down through the generations from one player to another, like an Olympic torch.
In 1948, FIDE World Chess Championship Tournament crowned Mikhail Botvinnik as World Chess Champion and established a more formal system of selecting candidates for the future.

This system worked reasonably well, until 1993, PCA (Professional Chess Association) created a split title, while FIDE continued to manage a World Championship cycle. The uncomfortable situation of a split title persisted for 13 years.

The title was reunified in 2006 when FIDE Champion Veselin Topalov lost to Kramnik in Elista.
