MrDodgy: The 5 Greatest Chess Interviews Ever

MrDodgy, the CEO of Chefable and the Tournament Director of MrDodgy Invitational 2022, has published his opinion of Hans Niemann’s recent interviews during the FTX Crypto Cup. In an article titled “The 5 Greatest Chess Interviews Ever: A list nobody can argue with” MrDodgy says, “Hans Niemann’s recent Meltwater Champions Chess Tour interviews led to a kerfuffle. Many are confused that an interviewee could actually “say things” instead of “not saying anything meaningful”. Bland is best, they say. Is it true, though? Controversy for the sake of controversy might seem cheap but shouldn’t we appreciate genuine emotion & even genuine pain? Every chess player knows exactly how Hans felt after losing those games, it’s just rare to see someone so high-profile talk about it in front of a camera. If we feel exactly the same way he did, what’s the problem with him expressing it?”

MrDodgy continues with his selection of the top 5 interviews, Including Viswanathan Anand, Magnus Carlsen, Hans Niemann, Alexander Gischuk, and Ivan Sokolov. See all the videos of “The 5 Greatest Chess Interviews Ever: A list nobody can argue with” here
