Czech Grandmaster David Navara, who is now taking part in the European Championship in Jerusalem, has given an interview to Aleksander Nesterovsky (in Russian) after the 3rd round. Among other things, he says the rating calculation system adopted by FIDE for blitz games is 'somewhat strange':

'In my opinion, the coefficient used for calculating the blitz ratings is too high. It's clear that the coefficient cannot be the same for rapid and blitz, because one can play much more blitz games than rapid ones within a given period. My blitz rating (2798 - CN) has strangely soared exactly for this reason: I've gained nearly 100 rating points after just two successful tournaments. This is absurd, of course'.
