Kamsky Interview

GM Gata Kamsky was at the top of a six-way tie for first recently at the National Open (June 5-8), part of the Las Vegas International Chess Festival. In this eight-minute interview with Macauley Peterson of ICC Chess.FM, Kamsky discusses his time in Vegas and his thoughts on the upcoming World Championship candidates match with Veselin Topalov, scheduled for November in Lvov, Ukraine."

My thanks to John Henderson of ICC for sending this through.


  1. I have to confess not making it to the end of that . . .

  2. Yes, I know what you mean. Chess player interviews don't make for a televisual feast, do they? This brand of chess journalism is in its infancy (and may never proceed to adulthood).

  3. To be honest, that's true of most interviews with sportsmen and women, and indeed most interviews per se.
