I believe every chess player senses beauty,
by Vladimir Kramnik

I believe every chess player senses beauty,
when he succeeds in creating situations,
which contradict the expectations and the rules,
and he succeeds in mastering this situation.
- Vladimir Kramnik

Only he, who penetrates into the depth of the game,
can express his personality in it.
- Vladimir Kramnik

In chess one cannot control everything.
Sometimes a game takes an unexpected turn,
in which beauty begins to emerge.
Both players are always instrumental in this.
- Vladimir Kramnik

For us chess players the language of artist is something natural.
- Vladimir Kramnik

 

I don't like to show my emotions at the board,
not because they might give something away to an opponent,
but because that's my style: I like to keep it to myself.
- Vladimir Kramnik

No - I'm quite calm inside during the game for most of the time -
not 100%,
but generally very calm.
- Vladimir Kramnik

very differently as well.
- Vladimir Kramnik

But with the Berlin, I was able to allow him to get near,
but not quite near enough, and I knew where to draw
the line with the fortresses I had set up.
- Vladimir Kramnik

It made a big difference to my match stamina.
I couldn't imagine I would have been so energetic during the match -
it really gave me a welcomed extra boost!
- Vladimir Kramnik

An impatient person plays differently than a more patient person.
- Vladimir Kramnik

Even if you play perfectly, a fault of your opponent's
can destroy the entire beauty of the game.
- Vladimir Kramnik

Every top player has his own style, just as every painter
has his own personal signature.
- Vladimir Kramnik

I am convinced, the way one plays chess always reflects
the player's personality.
If something defines his character, then it will also
define his way of playing.
- Vladimir Kramnik

Now, two years have passed and the situation is completely different:
no one wants to organise this match.
- Vladimir Kramnik

In this respect I suppose I'm the total opposite of Garry.
With his very emotive body language at the board he
shows and displays all his emotions.
I don't.
- Vladimir Kramnik

For me art and chess are closely related,
both are forms in which the self finds beauty and expression.
- Vladimir Kramnik

Chess is an infinitely complex game,
which one can play in infinitely numerous and varied ways.
- Vladimir Kramnik

Okay, when you start to fight for equality,
like Anand did in 1995, you could end up losing game 10,
like he did, without putting up any kind of fight.
- Vladimir Kramnik

The strength of the playing ability is much more important.
Only if the strength of the opponent's playing ability is comparable,
does the game develop.
- Vladimir Kramnik

With the Berlin I was able to set up a fortress that
he could come near but not breach.
- Vladimir Kramnik

I made a better decision in choosing my team.
Sure, I had a bigger choice of players to choose from -
but I couldn't have asked for a harder working group
of players who did an incredible job.
- Vladimir Kramnik

Once he had selected the path he was going down he
really had to stick with it in a 16 game match.
He had to try and hit in the one direction but unfortunately for him -
though fortunately for me!
- he hit in the wrong direction.
- Vladimir Kramnik

When I speak of the beauty of a game of chess,
then naturally this is subjective.
Beauty can be found in a very technical,
mathematical game for example.
That is the beauty of clarity.
- Vladimir Kramnik

You know, our ratings after this match will be very close -
I think I can also become the world number one in the not too distant future.
However, I'm sure that Garry will also have something to say about this!
- Vladimir Kramnik

The Berlin Defence suited my strategy for the match.
I had a defensive strategy - Actually,
I had in my pocket some other sharper stuff to fall back on -
but first I wanted to try the defensive strategy with
Black and it worked so well.
- Vladimir Kramnik

The development of beauty in chess never depends on you alone.
No matter how much imagination and creativity you invest,
you still do not create beauty.
Your opponent must react at the same highest level.
- Vladimir Kramnik

I feel that my relationship with Kasparov now is much
the same as it had been before the match -
good.
As for his reaction, well it can't be nice to lose
your title after so long,
but he was very generous.
- Vladimir Kramnik

So basically it's very simple: to start with,
if you want to win the match, you shouldn't be afraid of him.
There are still many, many things to do,
but above all this is the most important:
Don't be scared of him!
- Vladimir Kramnik

At some point he seemed to lose all confidence trying
to break down the Berlin Wall.
He was still fighting as only Kasparov can,
but I could see it in his eyes that he knew he wasn't
going to win one of these games.
- Vladimir Kramnik

Believe nothing, no matter where you read it,
or who said it, no matter if I have said it,
unless it agrees with your own reason
and your own common sense.

Faith so that you can believe,

Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.

Ask. Question. Think.
Decide - for yourself.

I believe that everything happens for a reason.

that falls on them unless they act.

It's what you put your thought and energy into,
because your hands physically manifest thought.
So your world becomes what you feel and what you think.
- Jewel
