    Just thought I would post this excerpt from a Korchnoi interview recently:

    The following excerpt is from an interview which appears at http://en.chessbase.com/post/viktor-korchnoi-interview-true-to-himself.

    V. Korchnoi: My opinion about the current World Champion is not that high.

    E. Surov: Well, then let’s talk about Kasparov and Karpov. Who do you appreciate more as a chess player?

    V. Korchnoi: Kasparov’s chess is much better than Karpov’s.

    G. Sosonko: Better even than Fischer’s?

    V. Korchnoi:  (smiling, with a characteristic smooth hand gesture) Fischer... Fischer is in a class by himself.

      Papa, do I have a chance againat the greatest player ever Bobby Fischer? No! My son but you must try for your country Russian . Can I refuse his fair conditions, because I can't win against Bobby.   Yes, my son, FIDE will help you become the world champion without playing one game against Fischer. Papa, you are the best! I thought I had to play, you know I not like Capablanca who refuse to accept the title without a fight. :) Thank you papa and FIDE for this gift and now I am the world champion, because of FIDE. :)

    Korchnoi declaring that he ranks Kasparov ahead of Fischer, but that one isn't referred to as often as the one where he says the opposite, for some reason :-)

    I think Korchnoi's latest interviews are those one should take less seriously, as he has among other things stated that Carlsen wins his games through hypnotism and isn't all that strong etc.

    I posted it today because I just saw it on the SF Mechanics website, and for no other reason ;)...
