Opening Interviews of Karen Vardanyan, Levon Aronian, and the participants

I think such events are very important as they create a chance of networking both among companies and their employees. It has an effect of team building among the companies let alone the fact that chess is an intellectual game. I think that this cooperation will get closer and closer and there will come a time when we will bring IT + Chess cooperation to the international arena. By the way during the DigiTech, our grandmasters played with a quite complicated chess program created by our developers. Now we are going to open that program for all Armenians so that it can be used for players as a tool for practicing.

Interview of Levon Aronian

You know we are a thinking nation. Both chess and IT are the spheres where Armenians feel good and have real achievements. And when these two spheres join each other, this is really something!
I do wish good luck to the IT Chess Cup players both in the games and in any personal initiative they will ever have!

Levon Aronian


The most interesting fact is that IT and chess are very close to each other not only by their logics but also by the fact that IT is growing in the world and so does chess. A very good event! Thank you Synergy!
