|Dec-22-05|| ||nikolaas: http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail... that's the first time I see a typo on a nameboard (his name is not Kransekow is it :-)).|
|Jan-09-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Mikhail Krasenkow|
|Apr-05-06|| ||Resignation Trap: Now that he lives in Poland, "Michal" is the preferred spelling of his first name, and that is how FIDE also spells it.|
|May-08-06|| ||PhilFeeley: Nice game. Weird opening. I love it when the underdog wins:|

|Mar-31-07|| ||matysso: In July and October 2000 - Krasenkow's rating was 2702 |
|May-13-07|| ||argishti: JUL '01 2573 42

now thats got to hurt.
|Jul-25-07|| ||Troller: Yeah, he has always been inconsistent. He also reached the elite rather late in his career.|
Curently, he is rated 2660 and has 5/5 in Politiken Cup:
Playing Sargissian with black later today.
|Mar-28-08|| ||sonia91: He won the Scandinavian Rapid Open in Stockholm. Congratulations!|

|Jun-11-08|| ||hitman84: Congratulations to GM Krasenkow!
|Nov-14-09|| ||WhiteRook48: especially known for Short's blunder against him|
|Jan-03-10|| ||Tabanus: Winner today of rapid (35 min. 3 sec.) tournament Open Mundial de Leon (Spain),|
|Jun-06-10|| ||plimko: What do you think about the Krasenkow's open letter? |
I agree with him.
|Jun-06-10|| ||yalie: <I agree with him.>|
I do too.
|Jun-06-10|| ||whiteshark: There is every indication that in a team competition only team efforts should be honoured officially.|
|Aug-06-10|| ||polarmis: Just published is my translation of Krasenkow's Q&A session with Crestbook readers:
He's asked about (almost) everything under the sun and e.g. to the question of whether excessive theory and computer cheating threaten the future of chess, responds:
<For the time being we’re still a long way from that – at the highest level the majority of games are still decided by a struggle at the board. And human memory isn’t unlimited. Computer assistance is a problem. For now it’s still a marginal phenomenon. Human nature comes to the rescue – chess players usually want to win on their own, without anyone’s help. But you can’t rely on nature for too long. We need to come up with effective anti-cheating measures.>
|Aug-31-10|| ||Uncanny: Looks like he kibitzes here.|
|Aug-17-14|| ||Mr. V: Damn, ranked 10th in the world at one time! And nobody talks about him these days.|
|Aug-17-14|| ||dx9293: <Mr.V> Yes, Krasenkow was the 18th player ever to reach 2700 (with 2702) when he reached #10 in the World (July 2000).|
In August 2014, #10 in the World is 2760 (Kramnik)! So we can say that Krasenkow's achievement is quite significant.
|Aug-17-14|| ||Mr. V: <dx9293> You're definitely right; regardless of rating, being #10 is a huge accomplishment. What confuses me is, how did he become #10? His results against the world's best aren't great (from what I've seen). I'd love to see a great tournament from him among the elite, if you happen to know more about him.|
|Aug-17-14|| ||Mr. V: Actually, I found a few, in addition to the Rubinstein Memorial, which I think is most impressive.
This is good: Madrid (1998)
Even better: Leonid Stein Memorial (2000)
I guess he had an okay Wijk Aan Zee: Wijk aan Zee (2003)|
|Aug-17-14|| ||PhilFeeley: He just won the HZ Chess Open (http://en.chessbase.com/post/hz-che...) I don't know why there's no page here.|
|Jun-07-15|| ||Penguincw: Congrats to Krasenkow for beating Navara with black today.|
Navara vs M Krasenkow, 2015
|Jun-23-15|| ||cro777: Krasenkow has made numerous major contributions to opening theory, and has written books on the Open Spanish and the Sveshnikov Sicilian. His other special areas of interest are the Grünfeld Defence and the Noteboom System, and he is the biggest expert of the King's Indian with 6.h3.|
Krasenkow is a FIDE senior trainer and has worked with many top players including Anand. He's been the national coach of Poland since 2010.
|Jun-23-15|| ||cro777: Michal Krasenkow: "There are two kinds of beauty in chess: the 'beauty of paradox', where the Gordian knot of problems is cut with a tactical strike or a subtle, hidden manoeuvre; and the 'beauty of logic', where a player, using his opponent's minor inaccuracies, consistently imposing more and more strokes, paints the canvas of victory."|
Krasenkow's new book: <Finding Chess Jewels: Improve your Imagination and Calculation> deals with the first kind of beauty.
