The winner of the ACP Golden Classic Vassily Ivanchuk answered several questions from Emil Sutovsky at the end of the tournament.

Vassily thanked for the invitation, noted that he likes to play in Amsterdam and that he enjoyed the event. "It's amusing to remember the good old times", said Ivanchuk, "To some extent, I caught the five-hour time control with adjournment and think that it benefited me at that time: it greatly helped me to develop analytical abilities. It's not just my achievement, but also that of my coaches, who accompanied me".

At the same time Ivanchuk doesn't think that this kind of format can dominate in modern chess, "but it's quite possible to hold such tournaments from time to time".

The Ukrainian named his game against Le Quang Liem as his best in the competition.
