Sep-11-14  AJ of Alaska: <Joshka: Professional high level chess stinks to high heaven. Kirsan wants to be dictator for life!! Just like Putin>

I usually try to respond to all posts addressed at me, but in your case I am tempted to make an exception to that rule!

You are obviously a seriously deranged individual, or (and I hope for your sake that this is the reason) you are deliberately provocative just to get angry reactions.

Your "opinions" are laughable.
Before Kirsan FIDE was a mess. No money, no sponsors, NOTHING!

FIDE was not recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) at the time and was in a deep economic and political crisis (it was essentially on the brink of splitting).

Ilyumzhinov proclaimed FIDE an organization not for two great chess players, but rather for thousands of professional chess players, hundreds of national chess federations, and millions of chess enthusiasts.

This declaration ultimately was vindicated: FIDE currently counts 181 countries as its members, which makes it one of the world’s largest sports organizations. Under Ilyumzhinov’s leadership, FIDE was able to recover from its critical state.

I could go on and on...

<Since you must be on Kirsan's payroll, has he ever taken you aboard the spaceship with the aliens?? Yea what do you say about that???>

Kirsan is an eccentric. That is one of his traits and it is essential to understand the man. Many highly creative, ingenious people have their fair share of eccentricities!

I don't purport to understand much of his stories about aliens, but are they relevant? He is a great leader, that is what is relevant. And great, imaginative people can have some strange ideas, sometimes!

President Reagan is universally acknowledged as a great leader. Yet, it is well known that he, through the enthusiastic input from his wife, relied on astrology for guidance in making important political decisions. What do you think about that, Joshka? Does that take away anything from Reagan, the great man?

Stop spreading lies and disinformation about FIDE and Kirsan, Joshka.

I suspect that you are connected to Kasparov in some way, perhaps you know him? Do you? Because, this is exactly what he and his friends do, spreading lies and disinformation about alleged "crimes" and corruption.

In nineteen years we have not had a single case of corruption in FIDE!

That is something Kirsan is very proud of.
Cheers, Alan

  perfidious: And Fischer thought an eleven-round US title event was too open to chance--one can only imagine what his views were on the KO matches.

  MarkFinan: Did I really just read Joshka's post correctly or am I missing the sarcasm for once?? Has this guy claimed to have played interplanetary chess?? I give up, lol. No wonder TheFocus left good LOL 🐸

I just want to see Carlsen whoop Anand and then I'm out of this place!

I guess it is his fabrication. Excited to see how MAX the superrobot will come into play in his next version :-).

Premium Chessgames Member
  MarkFinan: Lol. Maybe Max taught him everything he knows. That's definitely one of my favourite AJ stories :-)

Here, for you folks who are not aware of this wacko's belief's. Is it any wonder we can't get sponsor's for the World Chess Championship. Recall back in the early 90's before this lunatic came to power in FIDE, we had purses for around 3 million!! Now since he's been involved, the purses are way much smaller and countries do not want to even bid on his matches!! KO matches were a joke, and these 12 game matches are just as laughable as he is. Think he built a chess city, too. So why are there no big high level championship tourneys in his chess city? hey <AJ of Alaska> does he pay you in rubles or in the intergalactic monetary system?

Sep-12-14  john barleycorn: <Joshka:

Here, for you folks who are not aware of this wacko's belief's....>

I know about his beliefs. Unfortunately, I know also about Kasparov's beliefs.

So what is your point? And was it not Kasparov who wanted to get back into Illyumshinov's arms in the 90's after Kasparov had to shut down his business because of being too successful??? hahaha

Premium Chessgames Member
  Joshka: <john barleycorn> Guess your memory is shot, remember what happened to this reporter, when she was uncovering corruption on Kirsan!!! Larisa Ludina!!! Just like Putin!!! Don't go poking into the criminals business, you'll end up 6 feet under!!! So you and <AJ of Alaska> going to get ring side seats next to Kirsan and Putin in Sochi for the big match!?? Really thought the young man Carlsen was going to stand for some changes at the top, guess it's business as usual.
Sep-12-14  john barleycorn: Don't change the topic.

  Absentee: I mean the story about "Max".

Ilyumzhinov with Ghaddafi:

  MissScarlett: For all those who disbelieved that Kirsan was abducted by aliens:

Oct-12-14  landlizard: Probably most people know this, but Kirsan is a disease that has infected FIDE and there is no cure. I would guess the Kasparov haters are drones or idiots sponsored by this shady character.

Just go to the Fide web site, or view anything that fide is involved with, and you will see more pictures of Kirsan than you will of the chess players. It does not take a genius to recognize the blatant propaganda he uses to promote himself. Not only that, but he probably sucks at chess.

It's sickening to read something comparing Kasparov to Kirsan. There is no comparison. The primary reason top chess players do not get the money they deserve is because no legitimate organization or individual wants Kirsan's image associated with their name or product.

A new organization needs to be formed, or Kirsan needs to leave Fide. He won't leave voluntarily, and he knows how to manipulate the one country one vote to maintain his stranglehold on Fide.

People that distract from the issue by bashing Kasparov, need to get a life. They obviously don't know what's happening with Fide. Maybe Kasparov's arrogance bothers them, maybe they are paid shills to trash Kasparov, and distract from the real problem.

  MissScarlett: <Chess in Translation @ChessinT · Oct 30

Curiously, in a meeting with Putin Ilyumzhinov talked about "bids from a few countries" for the World Ch. match:>

Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: Here's the official version of events:

<The most important thing for us is the modern means of telecommunications, as the match will be broadcast online. Tens of millions, and we have had cases where up to 400 millions of people, chess players visited the championship website and the website simply collapsed.>

This is what's known in the trade as <talking bollocks>.

  Rookiepawn: <To mix the terms God and disease together in the same sentence>

Not only that, I heard he mixed also "god" with "toaster", "cockroach", "zino-pad" and "leprechaun". If this doesn't send Mr <perfidious> to jail then the Western civilization is seriously threatened.

  perfidious: <Rookiepawn> Slap the manacles on already!
Dec-07-14  schweigzwang: Did he mix "leprechaun" with "toaster"? If not, I'm willing to give him a pass.

  perfidious: If Ah done thet, somebody shoulda smacked me one!

What the hail is a zino-pad anyway? Can y'all tell me?

LOL, I see you are not familiar with hi-tech, hi-fashion accessories. Pity you:
