During the tournament I managed to speak with a lot of Grandmasters, had the chance to get to know them a little bit, very interesting. In the upcoming weeks I will post a series of interviews with a.o. Maxime Vachier Lagrave and Anish Giri. For now I bring you a funny memory Anish shared with me from the early days of his career:
'I remember that -as a little boy- when I was about to lose my first serious chess game, I stole the rook of my opponent!'
Keep an eye on my blog! More is to come:)
