Tournaments in Alushta for me like in the advertisement Ц Уthree pleasures in oneФ
The first is a noble Crimea climate created by nature itself. The second – nice friendly atmosphere of the tournament, thanks first of all to the leading organizer Mister Galperin. And finally the creative character of the tournament. There is an opportunity for Grossmaster to make experiments, just to play without thinking about «scores, points and second». Maybe, that’s why my results are so different from -3 (1999) to + 8 (2000).
