Politiken Cup 2013
Portisch,L is playing.

Interview
(We) met the Hungarian chess legend Lajos Portisch in the lobby and got a short interview.

Mr. Portisch told us, that this is his third appearance in Politiken Cup and he likes the tournament because of the nice surroundings, the Konventum hotel, the good food and the nice atmosphere. 

We asked why he so far has not attended any senior chess competitions, Portisch answered, that he has no ambition to become a senior world champion, when he never became world champion in his best period as a chess player. 


“In my age, you choose your tournaments very carefully. Of course if the organizers of the senior world championship gave me a nice offer, I would consider, but my main ambition these days is to sing.(more)..’
