For us chess players the language of artist is something natural.
An impatient person plays differently than a more patient person.
My way of playing is very different and Karpov plays very differently as well.
Only he, who penetrates into the depth of the game, can express his personality in it.
With the Berlin I was able to set up a fortress that he could come near but not breach.
Every top player has his own style, just as every painter has his own personal signature.
Chess is an infinitely complex game, which one can play in infinitely numerous and varied ways.
Even if you play perfectly, a fault of your opponent's can destroy the entire beauty of the game.
No - I'm quite calm inside during the game for most of the time - not 100%, but generally very calm.
For me art and chess are closely related, both are forms in which the self finds beauty and expression.
