very few Russian players on this board, is it an economic thing ,or is this place for people with to much time on their hands?

Russia may have the strongest players, but I believe that Germany has the highest number of Grandmasters-- though I'm not sure of the exact count. And Iceland has the highest number of Grandmasters per capita (or so I've heard!).

Generally speaking, Russia supports chess alot, almost everyone in russia has grown up playing chess instead of computer games, and it seems a kind of tradition. & the dominance of the russians in world championships concludes this. That does not mean to say that other counties cannot produce strong chess players, take Viswanathan Anand (IND) for example :-)

In world championships, maybe so. But the Rest of the World whupped Russia in their games. Kasparov was beaten badly--- Polgar won her game with him!
