Nice Interview of Anatoly Karpov

A lot has been said and written about Kasparov vs Karpov chess rivalry. Even Kasparov has written/spoken at length about Karpov – both good things and not-so-good things. However Karpov still remains a mystery man.

Probably because he is not very fluent in English and hence enigma for the English speaking world.

Here is one nice interview conducted by IM Tania Sachdev which was released yesterday. Interestingly he said few nice things about Bobby Fischer and talked about the match that didn’t happen.

He is also a very loyal supporter of the Soviet regime, so he didn’t rebel (unlike Kasparov) against them and played with Fisher.

Couple of his other good interviews are below:
