Aug-17-03  morphynoman2: A very good interview with the winner, here:
Aug-18-03  PVS: I pretty much agree with Morozevich, especially his feeling that the world championship reunification will make a few players a bundle, and then the mess will resume. The only point on which I disagree is that I prefer all-play-all tournaments to knockouts.
