Vassily Ivanchuk: I didn’t learn the details of this match. But if this man feels himself so strong, let him first play in Ukrainian championship or at least some regional championship and get some rating.
After the interviewer suggested to organize match between 2 landsmen - Vassily vs Andrey
Vassily Ivanchuk answered that it’s not the first thing about which he is dreaming now.
Andrey Slyusarchuk responded that he is not going to prove anything. He don’t see any benefit for himself from match with Ivanchuk after he’s beaten Rybka. Winning against Ivanchuk for him is too simple task.
