– By the way I have never been a professional player. I easily graduated from the University, than 12 years worked by a trade of the engineer and at the age of 30 started playing chess. Now I continue to work as the trainer. And I have quite good pupils. All the members of my family are chess players. My father was the champion of area (I watched his game and gradually joined), my wife is also a chess player. And our daughter has gone on our steps...

More often I am the arbiter in female tournaments, I have seen much and I can compare. I could tell that female chess strongly differs from the man's. It’s not good and not bad, but it is. On this tournament the leader Zhao Xue has shown really "man's game". Such a great result is feasible not to each grandmaster... I want to thank the representatives of FIDE and the local organizers. On this tournament the conditions for the participants are perfect. I think it is a merit of FIDE, they have already understood how necessary is to organize such actions. Also it was very pleasant to talk to the participants because they are really very nice and polite.
