I want to share with you my last game from Czech Open 2013 against Viktor Laznicka. Before the last round we were in totally different psychological states. I had 6.5 out of 8 winning 5 last games in a row and my opponent won his first 4 games and then played all the draws. So I was more than sure that he would play for a win, because 6.5 points do not promise much in this huge open. On the other hand I wouldn't mind against a draw though to be honest I wanted to take revenge for my loss against Viktor in European Championship, where he had beaten me quite badly with black.

Chess is considered to be not suitable for TV format. Ivanchuk refutes this postulate. His true love for chess is touching audience, his emotions are inimitable, and beauty of his games is incredible. Vasilly Ivanchuk presents lecture in English, besides he knows Spanish, German, Polish, Turkish, he also started to learn Portuguese. Ivanchuk still has youth desire to learn everything around and seek answers for most challenging question. Perhaps, that is the main lesson we can take from him!

"Ivanchuk is a first class chess player. For instance, Gelfand and Topalov aren't such. Aronian is close to that but yet he hasn't entered that caste. Ivanchuk continues the tradition of the outstanding players who didn't become world champions, such were Keres, Korchnoi. Moreover, he even surpasses them in certain components as he for instance, overtook me and Karpov in the tournaments, while those mentioned before haven't outstripped the star players of those times.". Garry Kasparov
