Etienne Bacrot was a little boy then. And he was probably intimidated by two things a) after the game he was supposed to be filmed for TV b) noticing a little boy at my table, and not realising who this talent was ( nor that he was my opponent ), I told him as friendly as I could that in a matter of minutes my opponent would turn up to take that chair.. "But I am your opponent" said the little guy ..

Many years ago I was at a tournament, watching one of the top players hit around with one of the ballboys, a lefthanded kid with an awkward no-knee-bend style. Then they started playing a match: the kid was McEnroe!

  IMlday: At the Moscow '94 Olympiad Canada won 4-0 in the first round and got to play Croatia on the stage in round two. Due to last-minute chaotic organization there were no team or individual name cards but an arbiter told me where to sit. I'm looking around and there are extreme little kids, unlabeled, on the next table. I didn't have a clue who they were until Lajos Portisch arrived to occupy the empty seat. Polgar, Leko and Almasi were the prodigy faces.
