My thought - Who is Dariusz Swiercz? wink.png

He is a Polish born GM. He is currently living and studying in the USA. He has switched federations from Poland to the USA. This would mean that all the appropriate paperwork has been processed and the appropriate fees have been paid. It is what it is.

Disgusting mercenary.

i feel this is bad because as you said he was born in Poland hence he truly represents IT like winning olympics. in fact in terms of federation even if he would gain citizenship he should still only represent his/her country. this ought to be true for every player yet in the instance of a SUCCESSFUL player it shifts the advantage unjustly away from Poland and to the target country's federation  so paying a fee to join should not be enough for exchanging federation. this rule s desirable for the receivers of money but seems wrong.

USA always steals the top best talent from other countries with generous financial incentives.

It's a good way to build a solid collection of skilled individuals but deep down the players have nothing in common with each other, lack teamwork, and zero passion for representing their adopted country.

With a name like GM Dariusz Swiercz, he should move to Hawaii.  The land of no vowels.

"Greek is everyone that becomes the vessel of the Greek education and science"

   So we can say that:

"American is everyone that becomes the vessel of the American  education and science"

In a truly perfect world, Aristotle and chipotle would rhyme.

 I really think that is great for him and for USA too. I just was curious to know what other people thought about it.
