    There is a great video of a "master class" by Ivanchuk at the Gibraltar tournament: http://blip.tv/gibchess/round7-ivanchuk-6515809

    The later part, in which his fellow GM and audience members ask him questions, is especially interesting.

    i'm amazed he doesn't use an engine. he is probably the only grandmaster in the world who doesn't!

    Yeah, Moyuba, I was amazed by that too. For those who didn't watch the video, Ivanchuk says he has a chess database but doesn't use an engine. If he wants something analyzed by an engine every once in a while, he will ask somebody else (his trainer, I think) to do it for him. The man really does not like engines.

    Yeah have to say Ivanchuk grew on me about 3-5 years ago. He sticks his nose in those games no matter who his opponent is in the game.
