Tkachiev Statement on Kolkata

Vladislav Tkachiev comments on publicity on his recent problems in Kolkata.


I would like to explain the recent incident at the Calcutta tournament in which I was involved. From the very beginning of the event I experienced problems with health and acclimatization, and had to take strong medications, which obviously affected my ability to play.
I wish to express my gratitude to the Alekhine Chess Club for their hospitality and a high level of organization of the event. I thank all media who have published this letter.

Best regards,

Vlad Tkachiev
