. - They say you are so strained his playing Kasparov in a match for the chess crown that he had exhausted all the nervous energy and was not similar to itself ..

- It's hard to judge. Just in every game I tried not to give your opponent to show his strengths. During the match I had stubbornly defended, and then my eyes tried to "hypnotize" the enemy.
