Our congratulations with victory over Gata Kamsky. Tell us how the game was going on.

- It was a tough game. It is obvious that Gata has mixed something up at some point. We had complicated position in time trouble. I am very happy that even with some difficulties but I managed to win.

At some point you had a choice to play Nd5 which could give you an advantage instead of your move Bh7. Did you calculate it? What did not you like in it?

- Yes, truly speaking I calculated it, I felt that there is such a move, but could not see any precise way which could lead to a victory, that is why I decided not to risk.

- How often do you participate in blitz tournaments? And how serious do you consider them?

- It depends what tournament it is. Now this tournament is a world championship. Of course it is pleasant to play here.
