  • Even a dickhead would do a better job than Ilyumzhinov. The chaos in the chess world is caused by “leaders” who are unable to do their job properly.
  • People knew about 110 years of chess history. Nowadays, nobody is able to tell you the name of the world champion of 2000.
  • My relations with Korchnoi depend on whether he has slept well. If he had bad dreams, he speaks a lot of rubbish.
