Emil Sutovsky:
"2011 was marked by a lot of outstanding events. Everything started with Nakamura 
winning Wijk aan Zee, which few expected. Then came Gelfand's brilliant victory in Kazan - a few staked on him. Svidler won in Khanty-Mansiysk - he, as well, wasn't a favourite. Germany became European Champion - it's altogether incredible.That, probably, proves that with a proper aspiration and some luck we are capable of anything. That's why I wish the readers of Chess-News best of luck in New Year, believe in yourselves, work on yourselves. That is something that I feel myself and, therefore, I hope that coming year will bring us a lot of good results". 

Alexandr Motylev:
"Not long ago I've read Hokku, which I can quote as a congratulation; it's a bit sad though.
Fish and birds
I do not envy them anymore
I'll forget all the sorrows of the year 

It's such an impetuous time now, that everyone's running somewhere, do not have time... I'd like to wish not to forget that at some point one has to stop, think, appreciate. To take timely break".

Eugeny Naer:
"First of all I'd like to wish everyone health. Love to our game, to have as much interesting chess events in New Year as it's possible, and the most important - to participate in them. I've heard from my friends, amateurs in chess, for many times: they've played in some sort of a tournament and experienced a great pleasure. Regardless our skills, we all love this game. And I think, that our own games are the most interesting for us. That's why, following Vasily Utkin's words, I'd like to wish everyone to play chess as much as possible. And, of course, follow chess news, including on - Chess-News". 

Vladimir Tukmakov:
"First of all I'd like to wish luck and success in life to my team of Azerbaijan. The joyous and significant events have happened this year for Gadir Guseinov and Teimour Radjabov. They got married, they became family men, they got a new kind of responsibility. Shakhriyar Mamedyarov and Nidjat Mamedov are next. I wish them to complete the started. The engagements have already been done, now the weddings should take place. I wish that to be beautiful and joyful events and those, who already had families, - I wish a logical continuation of the first stage. 

I'd like to wish everything the best to my former team - guys from Ukrainian team. Foremost to Pasha Eljanov whose daughter was born recently. All the best to them in chess career and everyday life. The same wishes for the "SOCAR" team, captain of which I am. Half of the team consists of Azerbaijani people whom I've already wished everything. All the best for the second half of it as well, foremost - chess success, successful tournaments. 

Not to mention all other chess fans". 

Sergey Karjakin:
"I wish everyone chess victories, perfection, so that the interest in chess won't fade. From all the New Years I had, the happiest was 2001/2002, when we had a practice session with Ponomariov and Topalov in the run-up to the match against Ivanchuk. That was a memorable New Year: we didn't have any special celebrations, but just sat and played chess. For me, 11-year-old boy, dealing with such giants, of course, couldn't pass without leaving a trace, that impression exists till now. 

I'd like to wish the interest in chess won't fade for anyone in New Year, and the visitors of Chess-News continue entering and reading it. I think this website is very objective, it enables everyone to express their views, which is a big plus. Good luck everyone!". 

Mikhail Golubev:
The most important I'm looking forward in the next year is a development of ratings in rapid and blitz. And in general I wish everyone what people wish themselves - let the dreams come true". 

Mikhail Vasiliev:
"I wish all the chess lovers every success, health, and good mood. To have a good celebration of New Year. And we have to meet more often!".

Genna Sosonko:
I wish the whole chess community the same as I wish myself. Maybe that goes against what it's doing right now, listens to us, but I still can't avoid saying that. The past year, more than any other, carried me into a virtual world. And I'm completely sure that the visitors of the website spend a big part of their lives in the virtual world. In other words, I can't live without the Internet. That's correct and that's good. But they have to take on trust - the real life is more important than a virtual one. Don't forget about the real life, which is ridiculously and cruelly short". 

Alexandr Onischuk:
"First of all - I wish health everyone! And luck to accompany you in New Year. If you have that, life is good then". 

Ilya Levitov:
"I wish everyone a good chess mood. Pleasure from a favourite game, favourite job, favourite hobby. Less arguments, less hatred. More joy. I wish us victory in New Year, which will have only one big team competition. I hope, we will manage to succeed in it. We'll do our bests. In general, I wish everyone health and personal happiness!".    

Sergei Zhigalko:
"From myself and all Belarusian players I wish everyone much happiness and sound health. I wish the number of chess lovers to increase. As Kirsan Ilyumzhinov has said - a million to play chess; I wish you good mood. We'll support our compatriot Boris Gelfand in the World Champion's title match". 

Boris Gelfand:
"I'd like to wish Chess-News every success, development. Everyone - sound health. And all the chess lovers - the coming year to be not less bright than 2011; people to get pleasure from playing chess and please others with their games". 

Alexei Shirov:
"All those who aren't indifferent to chess I wish health and happiness in private life, harmony in everything. I also always wish everyone continue loving chess". 

Zurab Azmaiparashvili:
"May this New Year bring us happiness, world peace, because we're tired of all wars. And also let it bring peace in chess world. Let all the decisions made by the leaders benefit chess". 

Boris Postovsky:
"I wish all the chess players a happy New Year. Although this will be a leap year, the year of Dragon. Nevertheless, I wish everyone good health, energy, optimism, desire to overstep all the hardships, those who are facing them. An aspiration to achieve the things each has outlined. The year will be hard, but I think that chess will enable everyone, who plays it, to get a lot of pleasure. And those difficulties, which will raise outside the chess world, will be attenuated by chess. Positive mood, lots of smiles and everything the best!".
