The World Junior Champion Nataliya Buksa answered Vladimir Barsky's questions. "It was a very tense tournament for me; I think hardly anyone could predict before the start that I would even make it to the top ten. After winning this championship, I can say that it's not any specific preparation for a game that decides in sports, but your work as a whole and your attitude to the game. A strong will is important, and the desire to win. In every game!"

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.
