|Aug-21-07|| ||Karpova: <DP12: He played the Milan Vidmar (deluding himself that he could actually justify his rating) and scored a miserable 1/2 out of 8 his only draw was a pity(bribe???) draw with GM Robert Ruck in 12 moves.>|
No, Ruck didn't play in the tournament:
His only draw was against Mikhalchishin
Mikhalchishin vs A Crisan, 2001 (who drew all of his games).
|Jan-30-08|| ||mateifl: I can't believe this moron has a page here on this site!!! chessgames should delete it !!! He faked he's rating, became Romanian Chess Federation through bribery and corrupt politician friends, and almost destroyed Romanian chess (already in a very difficult situation when he became president).
Delete his page !!! He's in jail now, for Heaven's sake!!! |
P.S. Not to mention ... How dumb does someone have to be to take part in a real GM tournament, after faking is rating?
|Feb-01-08|| ||dumbgai: <mateifl> Crisan was invited to participate in a GM tournament to show whether he was deserving of his rating. Not surprisingly, he scored only one draw and lost the rest of his games. The games are included here because they were played in an official GM tournament, and I find them rather amusing.|
|Oct-18-08|| ||zoren: I think possibly he believed that he could play at that level.|
|Nov-18-08|| ||fasting: this is a wierd story..
First I got fazinated, could one do GM-draws without nobody notizing that ones actually rating was way lower than it appeared - like the mikalishin draw. It reminded me of some kind of "art-stunt" or the sakozy-to-palin phone call - where the artist/joker by acting convincing turns things around to great fun for the suroundings. But then the joker, must be able to take of his mask and reveal the trick! Which obviously isn't the case with this big time jerk Crisan - sad for romania, fun story though..
|Mar-12-09|| ||jurado96: its like winning the tour of france
with all the juice they take
this guy should have his pidture on,
so we can see him as the biggest idiot
of our game
|Mar-12-09|| ||Jim Bartle: More like winning the tour of france on a motorcycle.|

|Jan-10-12|| ||Shams: Perhaps this fellow's biography could be fleshed out a bit.|
|Jan-10-12|| ||HeMateMe: <Shams> New avatar? Sort of like chess as a playing card. I'm worried about this guy, too. He might be from the Carpathian hills. He might be a vampire that plays chess. We need to know more.|
|May-06-12|| ||King Death: < DP12:...Gm Azmai... was asked to review (Crisan's) games from the tournament came to the conclusion that it was clear that his real strength is at least below 2400...>|
Azmai would sure be one to know about cheating I guess, there's this from his page:
< offramp: I found this on the internet about Strumica. I had never heard of it and it is really interesting:
"One harkens back to Strumica 1995, one of the best-known fake tournaments ever. In a four player sextuple round robin, the scores were:
I won't go into details about the bottom two players - they are basically blacklisted as known cheats. I know very little about Kutirov, other than the fact that he never had a rating over 2370 until 1995, then went from 2330 in late 1994 to 2525 in mid-1996, got the GM title, and has been haemorrhaging points - currently at 2367. Oh yeah, that jump (helped so greatly by Strumica) got him the IM AND GM titles. And Azmaiparashvili? Well, he was a world top 100 GM - no one questions his strength. Strumica helped him go from 2610 to 2660 - quite a huge jump for one rating list. Of course, Azmai showed his class, got as high as 2681, and is now 2676. Strumica or no Strumica, he's good." >
|May-06-12|| ||offramp: That was a blast from the past! I was led here after reading about Toni Najdoski.|
|May-06-12|| ||King Death: And here's a game from Strumica that made it into Informant (Azmaiparashvili vs Kurajica, 1995). I never heard of this Kutirov but it's hard to buy that awful result Rashkovsky had, he played in some Soviet finals back in the 70s. Also I never heard about the reputation of either Rashkovsky or Kurajica throwing games until <ray keene's> kibitz after the above <offramp> post here (Zurab Azmaiparashvili).|
|Jul-31-12|| ||wordfunph: <ALEXANDRU CRISAN
(born Jul-31-1962) Romania
Grandmaster who got his title through bribery.>
the most unpleasant CG player page bio i ever read :(
too harsh for GM Crisan, hope CG to edit his bio.
gens una sumus!
happy birthday, GM Crisan!
|Aug-01-12|| ||Gregor Samsa Mendel: It might be unpleasant and harsh, but is it false?|
|Aug-01-12|| ||perfidious: Never heard of Crisan till this moment, but he sounds like a piece of work.|
It's possible his bio could be edited to the extent that it displays the year he was made a GM. There seems little else to tell, none of it good.
|Aug-01-12|| ||shadowleaf04: Here is a nice chess article on how Crisan managed to obtain the GM title through dishonest means. It also shows how he got exposed when he scored 0.5/9 in the Vidmar Memorial.|
You can fake your credentials, but your moves over the chessboard tells it all!
|Jan-11-14|| ||kereru: Apparently he went to jail on fraud charges, but he's probably out now. Does anyone have the details? The only online sources I've seen are in Romanian and google translate doesn't handle it very well.|
|Jun-23-14|| ||Domdaniel: Crisan's FIDE rating is bizarre. It's steady at 2588 for a few years, then drops to 2500 (in 2005) - and then immediately bounces back to 2588 and stays there.|
|Jun-23-14|| ||perfidious: <Dom> Must be that player's way of conforming to the Peter Principle.|
Would that our glass ceiling were so high as 2588--hell, I'd settle for a mere 2400!
|Jun-23-14|| ||zanzibar: <Domdaniel> Didn't FIDE do some mucking around with the rating system?|
Look at his rating history card, and he didn't play any games during the period in question:
(I think his last active game play was in 2001 - but doublecheck me)
|Jun-23-14|| ||Domdaniel: <perf> Indeed. Truth be told, at this stage I'd be happy to get back to 2000.|
|Sep-02-15|| ||dumbgai: A 14 year old Mongolian girl goes from 1458 to 2309 in 4 months: http://ratings.fide.com/card.phtml?....|
Plays in the same tournament against the same players every month. Suspicious, or just another case of a youngster showing rapid improvement and benefiting from a very high k-factor?
|Sep-02-15|| ||whiteshark: <dumbgai> Alushta Summer 2015 I-X|
"For the last six years the chess players from all over the word took part in the tournaments in this city. Many leading chess players began their sport career in those tournaments and now they play for the national teams of their countries. A lot of attention should be paid at the leading Ukrainian players. Alushta became for them not only the city, where they fulfilled their norms but also a place of training, rest and a favorite place to stay."
GM Mikhail Golubev
|Sep-02-15|| ||Stonehenge: FIDE title : None
Grandmaster my arse.
