    I am interested in chess and psychology, especially how chess can help the person grow. May chess used as indicator to measure women and men or people with different background. Also aging and chess. Being one of the top World players at the end of 80's I have tremendous experience and I know all top players from that period till today. I only did not play Magnus, but I beat Spassky in the past.
