How difficult is it to become a world champion as a tournament organizer?
Indeed, it was quite difficult for me to divide my time and energy between two important activities – playing in the tournament and helping to organize it. Fortunately, the organizers team was quite big and effective; therefore I could concentrate on important games quite well. However, at the end of the tournament, I felt really exhausted. But the joy of winning the title and the joy of successful organizing was far more important at that moment.
