Topalov - Grischuk encounter turned out to be one of the most interesting duels of Round 1 of Grand Prix. Bulgarian being white got some advantage in the middlegame, but it's hard to mark when did he miss it without analyses. In any case, Russian player at some point chose the best, maybe even ideal, way to defend.

Grischuk has been asked a question which was suggesting itself: How could it happen that he didn't experience any time trouble? Russian turned it into a joke: "I have a new strategy: I'm playing blitz at the beginning of the game, not in the end. However, this strategy hardly can be mentioned as a successful one, because I got a worse position."

Alexander also gave an exclusive commentary to our correspondent Maria Yurenok and told her that he is in London and in England in general for the first time. He said he enjoys his stay. "I guess this is one of the best districts of London, well, maybe I wouldn't enjoy that much if I was anywhere else..."

Grischuk also noted that he hasn't completely recovered from the tiresome Olympiad: "I'm still disappointed with the result..."

Noteworthy is Veselin Topalov's remark on the venue of the tournament: "After two weeks spent at the airport in Istanbul, the progres is obvious."
