  • Art and chess are just different fields, in which the same poetry finds expression. Vladimir Kramnik, 14th World Chess Champion

  • Vladimir Kramnik is one of the most talented players, perhaps THE most talented player, whom I have met in my chess career... There are some positions, like for example with the bishop pair or with a central passed pawn, which he played as if with divine inspiration. Artur Yusupov
