  Honza Cervenka: <This man sure loved his draws; they cover more than half of his games.> Things have changed a little bit after loading some hundreds of his missing games. Now one can say that "this man sure loved his wins...":-D

Russian GM <Andrei Kharlov> (born 1968)

"As we see many tied prizes. Yes-Andrei is always joking he needs a 1/2 point more. And it happens so often that he had got accustomed to this fate :)"

Nov-20-10  wordfunph: "Ninety percent of success in World Championship matches is due to psychology --- this is the most important thing that I've learnt from working with Kasparov. I think that Garry lost the match in 2000 mainly for psychological reasons."
