After browsing the WhyChess website in the context of the previous post, I noted several interviews that might be of general interest. First, there's a short one with world #2 Levon Aronian, in which, in passing, he (sort of) names Alexander Alekhine the best player of all time. ("For me he's the best.")

Next up, a medium-sized interview with a player mostly unknown to those of us in the West, Biel winner Wang Hao.

Finally, there's a longer interview with newly crowned World Junior champion, federation-hopper and professional elbower Alexander Ipatov.
