Kramnik-Grischuk and Gelfand-Kamsky: Game 1 Live

Live video (and recordings from other rounds)


Some great quotes from the press conferences:


I am generally such a person whom people trust () Kramnik about Grischuk's early draw offer as White and comment that he "believed in the quality of Vladimir's analysis"


I would be the first one to vote for abandoning all chess engines from now on. And would have even paid some money for that! (C) Kramnik


The game has changed a lot. I remember playing for the Ural team on board four, and I often had to face - polite cough - rather unpeculiar chess players. So, I recall, let's say I am playing a 2400-2450-rated player. After all, it's an IM. I'm playing the Catalan. After g3 he goes like: what is that?! And now, for example, my wife is participating in the Women's European Championship. Her opponent, a girl rated 2100, knows all the latest theory, Anand-Topalov and stuff, all home prep. Chess is changing a lot. (C) Grischuk


It is quite obvious that chess is a draw. If you can't mate with two knights, then what are we talking about? (C) Kramnik


I and my seconds didn't think about this, we are not as creative as FIDE (C) Kramnik about an idea of a new rule where pieces will be able to capture en passant


Grischuk is being asked about what modifications of chess he likes. Kramnik bursts in: poker!


Even taking into account that I have overall more analysis than all the others, I would agree to have everyone disarmed in terms of theory. I want to PLAY chess (C) Kramnik


When Capablanca started playing badly, he began talking about the draw death of chess. Then Alekhine. When Fischer started playing badly, he invented his own chess (C) Gelfand
