Thanks for posting the interview Dick. I was waiting for some considered reaction to the Hydra match. There was plenty of comment flying around, much of it ignorant and disparaging towards Mickey Adams.

Mickey has lost a few Elo points and positions in the rankings lately. Perhaps he has been taking on too much, as he has been playing in the UK, French and German leagues as well as plenty of tournaments and the Leko match.

Maybe his thrashing by Hydra will galvanise him into regaining his status. Today at Dortmund (Round 1) he showed signs of that by beating Topalov the current equal World No 1 (without Kasparov) and the player touted as Kasparovs successor. We shall see.

Mike

Only now I had a chance to read the interview and after that I have a deeper respect for him! I think it's rare to find people with that type of personality and his comments about himself are very candid!

He shows great respect for other players and I thought it was interesting when he said that even if he had more time to prepare for the much the outcome would not be that different!

In short, he seems to be a great guy!

Dick,

he was indeed very honest and I appreciate this too:

Adams: " I did my best and it just wasn’t good enough."

You will not find a lot of players who would say this after a lost match...
