|Mar-27-10|| ||wordfunph: 50th birthday of gm zurab azmaiparashvili..
|Aug-02-10|| ||cjgone: From what I read about this guy, he's pretty awesome. :D|
|Oct-10-10|| ||splatty: I feel sorry for Gashimov, he is a virtuoso chess player and was left out of the Olympiad because of the politics of a self-serving ex-FIDE politician. Gashimov is more of a talent than Azmaiparashvili ever was, and it's a disgrace he inhibits a top young player from representing his own country. I already thought Azmaiparashvili was a thug and a selfish idiot from previous Chessbase reports over the years relating to his role as a FIDE vice president, and this has confirmed all of that for me and I'll be happy if I never hear his name mentioned again as he's done enough damage. (As an aside, he has been part of the corruption in FIDE to get fat and rich for years, and he is hypocrite enough to complain and try and sue when the tables are turned on him...)|

P.S. This one would be a "decent and honest" motto for the FIDE (instead of "Gens una sumus"). ;0)
|Mar-16-12|| ||Penguincw: Happy Birthday POTD!|
|Mar-24-12|| ||King Death: <Jul-03-08 percyblakeney: It's only five years ago Azmai was a 2700 player, in July 2003 he had a 2702 rating (just behind Ivanchuk with 2710 but well ahead of Moro with 2679). This when such a rating was enough to be #15 (and not #30 as it is today).>|
And that 2702 wouldn't even get you in the top 40 today, http://www.2700chess.com/
But there's no inflation, that's a conspiracy theory. Lee Harvey Oswald was a lone gunman too.

<A man that will take back a move at chess will pick a pocket.>
'A man' as synomym for politicans and banksters!
|Dec-09-12|| ||OhioChessFan: I have always had a problem with moves being written down before they are made. That is not "recording". That is "making notes." FWIW, in the account, I think it made NO difference if he'd written a different move down or not.|
|Jul-24-13|| ||offramp: Would you buy a used car from this man?|
|Mar-14-14|| ||offramp: I took the plunge and bought a second-hand Volkswagen Puppo from Azmai. |
I later found out that it was two different cars sellotaped together!
Only the front end was a Volkswagen. Now he won't answer the phone.
|Mar-14-14|| ||Jim Bartle: Sounds about right.|
|Aug-13-14|| ||Karpova: The new president of the European Chess Union.
|Aug-13-14|| ||perfidious: The fix is in, baby!
Y'all want a title? A boost in rating? The Big A's your man! Slip him enough baksheesh and get anything!

|Sep-11-17|| ||Mudphudder: Famous fighter against chest corruption....uses the word "gypsy" bahahahahhaaa!|
|Mar-16-18|| ||FSR: I hate to see this scumbag as Player of the Day.|
|Mar-16-18|| ||HeMateMe: what specifically is this guy accused of, what has he done?|
|Mar-16-18|| ||perfidious: <HMM>, this player, inter alia, was alleged to have fixed the result of Strumica 1995, the games for which will be found here:|
There have been other shenanigans since.

Great article but the Gandhi quote at the top of the page should be changed to:
"First they trust you, then they rue the day, then they arrest you and finally you're hired by FIDE"
|Nov-03-18|| ||Nina Myers: What a disgusting human being.
Zurab, the same guy that made Anton Kovalyov quit the World Cup and cheated his way into the world elite, now yells at a 13 year old chess player for blundering in round 11 of a long, stressful tournament on move 81.
Zurab himself blundered in the final game of the European Championship 2003 and just made another move in order to win the game. He propably wanted <Alexander Krastev> to do the same...
People like Zurab are a disgrace to chess.
|Nov-03-18|| ||perfidious: This once, we are in agreement. Azmai is a disgrazia and a <point of sale>.|
|Dec-11-18|| ||Nina Myers: <perfidious>, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.|
