Three Questions to Grandmasters
Shortly before the start of the World Championship Tournament in Mexico, we asked grandmasters of several generations three questions: 1. What competition for the World Champion title do you remember most of all? 2. What system of determining the World Champion do you prefer? 3. Who do you think will win in Mexico? 41 grandmasters answered: 31 men, 10 women.

INTERVIEW WITH ZHANNA THAT RESEMBLES HER FATHER MIKHAIL TAL SO MUCH
On November, 9 – 70th anniversary of Tal's birth – the Riga newspaper "Telegraph" published an interview with the eight world champion's daughter Zhanna in which she told about her today's life in Germany and her professional interests.

It’s always interesting to listen to Viktor Lvovich Korchnoi. It’s something like watching a blockbuster – you’ll never guess the development of the action. Our moviemakers are making the first steps in this genre: “Night watch”, “Day watch”. I offer the readers “Korchnoi: the watch”, in which the famous grandmaster (the watchman) as usual gives no quarter neither to the others nor to himself.
