|Feb-12-09|| ||Mr. President: Some refer to him as <George Mafiakropoulos>|
|Oct-27-11|| ||Blunderdome: http://www.whychess.org/node/2643 <-- Interview Oct. 2011|
|Apr-11-18|| ||cunctatorg: One of the greatest, most cunning and methodical "Greek Imposters" in all (Greek and global) History!!|
He presumably hates chess but he loves to manipulate chess players in order to prove -and perhaps he is quite right about this!!...- that he is a stronger, more successful and even more influential personality than any chess player in all History of Chess...
He is not some kind of "Mafiakropoulos" though; his unique strength is his real ability to pinpoint the weaknesses of the great chess players and the chess community as a whole; the great chess players are in fact artists who only need strong and capable rivals in order to create their masterpieces; their genuine need for high level rivalry overshadows (and in fact absorbs) their abilities in most sectors and hence their inability to form a constant legal body, a healthy legal, political and social environment for their duels. There are more causes of course; their need for Sponsors, their egotistical, "anarchist" spirit combined with various propaganda wars and such...
And here comes Makropoulos' manipulative genius in order to outmaneuver all these fine artists and to force them to succumb to his political genius; I repeat that his strength is the inherent weakness of the vast majority of the great chess artists who are consumed by their need to outplay their rivals and to deliver chess masterpieces!! That genius of his is fueled of course by his lack of pure chess genius which makes him envy his peers and the whole Makropoulos' genius is not only born but also launched!! Down with Fischer, down with Korchnoi, down with Karpov and down with that horrible Gazza of course; Alekhine and Capablance will eat Makropoulos' dust!!...
Let's see if Makropoulos' manipulative dream comes true!!...
|Jun-29-18|| ||Penguincw: < "The medal winners were awarded by acting World Chess Federation (FIDE) president Georgios Makropoulos." >|
So he's still the deputy president?
|Sep-23-18|| ||PhilFeeley: Interview at 2018 Olympiad here:
|Sep-23-18|| ||soldal: |
<Following the ECF's rejection of Short, his bitter rival Makropoulos declared: “Not even his own country supports him... Thank you England!!”>
|Sep-23-18|| ||john barleycorn: <soldal> also interesting to read <Short, the only Briton to challenge for the world chess title,...>|
"challenge for the world chess title" ?
"the world chess title"? rather the <"The Times World Chess Championship." >
One world chess title created by him and Kasparov.
In 1993 there were 3 guys claiming "the" title: Karpov, Kasparov, and Fischer.
|Oct-03-18|| ||Mr. President: Do you mind if I sit back a little? Because your breath is very bad.|
