Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-17-13  jamesmaskell: Qualified for the World Cup 2013 after coming second in the FIDE Zone 3.4 Championship 2013 with 6.5/9. Quite a performance when you look at the field.
Aug-20-13  Karpova: Prior to the start of the World Cup (2013), Anton Filippov gave an interview and what he had to say was not nice:

- Markov's play was suspiciously strong yet sometimes it appeared as if he had no clue. <I was honest and said that I had some doubts, but yet I wasn't sure if he is really cheating.>

- Some Kyrgyz players deliberately lost their games against Markov's opponents to raise his Buchholz. <People demonstratively lose and say that they will do anything only to help their compatriot to qualify for the World Cup.>
