Tim, what do you think about the draw?
– The draw is what it is. I have wanted to pull Levan for a while. But I think with Denis out should be new draw. With him out the whole show changes.
You have a difficult rival – Levan. What will you do in the remaining month?
– All I can say is I am training hard. And am very motivated!
What do you think, what are your chances to stay in the top four and continue to fight for first place?
– My chances are good. Or I wouldn’t be fighting. I have been in this position before, where I can’t win. But as you know, I have beaten people that I was supposed to lose to.
Denis Tsyplenkov was hospitalized. Do you think it will ease this overall tension in the eight?
– It changes the whole show! That's why I say should be redraw. Denis is good man, strong. This won’t keep him down. Good luck my friend!
Would you like to try to pull Vitaly Laletin at the table?
– I will pull anyone. But I guess he couldn’t be on champs’ side because it changes everything. It should be reshuffled. Either Trubin or me should be on A side. So, a redraw would be proper, I believe. I would like to pull the young man. He is great puller. Or Levan. I'm not afraid to pull top guys, like others.
