derivalNicolas Derival, international grandmaster from the USA, told about his game at the World Draughts Championship, impressions and dreams.

- In the championship of such a level I am playing for the first time, and I learned many new and interesting things. Unfortunately, I did not get to the A-final, but next time I will do my utmost to be there. In the consolation B-final I play with varying success. Now I fall three points behind the leaders. My family helps me a lot, they support me. After speaking with them I have inspiration to continue the game with renewed vigour, - said the draughts player.

In his predictions about the winners of the Championship, Nicolas Derival said:

- Alexander Georgiev is a good and strong player. But I would like that Roel Boomstra or N’cho Joel Atse become the champion. It is not interesting when one and the same person wins sever times in a row.

I had a chance to speak to Nicolas about his impressions of Bashkortostan and even about his personal life.

- Most of all what I remembered about this country is hospitable people. I like this quality, and I think about getting married to a Russian girl, - the sportsman said smiling. – But while the Championship is going on, I cannot get distracted. For this, I will come here later, - the sportsman promised.
