Torbay Chess Congress
I considered this match a very important event, but it's not the most important thing in my life. For me it's more important to be healthy, to be a happy person in my daily life. I will try to explain another way. Health and happiness means number "1" for me. Achievements, victories are the "zeros". So I would add those zeros to the number "1". The total can be 10, 100, 1000, 10000, but without the number "1" it's nothing.
