Natalia Pogonina Interviewed by R-Sport

Interview by Anatoliy Samokhvalov, R-Sport
Translation: Pogonina.com


Bookmark and Share

Russian grandmaster Natalia Pogonina told R-Sport interviwer Anatoliy Samokhvalov about her expectations for the World Team Chess Championship which is starting on Sunday in Chengdu, China. Recently Natalia became the runner-up of the Women's World Chess Championship. The tournament was held in Sochi, Russia.

- Natalia you are currently between two world championships. Is this the proper time to be in top shape?


- I don't focus my attention on whether I am in my best form or not. If you try to peak at one event you are likely to fail at another one. After the tournament in China I have one more tournament coming up. Hence, I don't want to program myself in such a way. Of course, for any chess player the World Championship is the main event: more important than the Olympiad or than the World Team Championship. But I am trying to do my best at every competition!


- Don't you overburden yourself this way?


- It depends on the emotions. If you keep wasting them, you will get burned out. I approach my job carefully and calmly. There is no need to tell oneself: "Come on, you have to prove yourself at all costs!". Such slogans lead to fatigue and stress. 


- Were you affected by the fact that the championship (originally scheduled for autumn 2014) had been postponed? 


- Not really. I was told that the event will probably take place in sprint, so I wasn't planning to play anywhere else during this period.


- Were you expecting to travel to UAE? This was the original plan for the venue.


- To be honest, I wasn't expecting the tournament to take place there. There was no information about the preparation. Russian President Vladimir Putin basically saved us. If not for him, I have no idea who would host the championship. Even with men's events there are often problems finding sponsorship, for example, for the Grand Prix stages. With respect to women's chess fundraising is even more problematic.

Natalia Pogonina: The race after titles, fame and money is destroying people from the inside

Natalia, my congratulations to you on an inspiring performance!


What were your expectations for the Womens World Chess Championship? The bookmakers didnt seem to have a lot of confidence in you: one of the companies estimated the odds of you winning the event at 1:41, while the #1 favorites chances, according to their assessment, were almost 13 times higher. Did you set any goals before the tournament?


I dont pay attention to such forecasts. Humans are in charge of all those assessments, and they tend to make mistakes. For a player there is not much sense in studying such information. Under the knockout system anyone can pull oneself together and do well. One shouldnt set any limits for oneself. I didnt have any particular goals and didnt treat it in the the minimal task is to reach round X way. I was mentally prepared to go home after the very first round. If I move on, its nice. If not, its also fine, because I will return to my family. Maybe this attitude helped me to focus on the game itself instead of dwelling on the results. My attention was on the game, not on the outcome.
