Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-24-05  MidnightDuffer: Papaioannou is one to watch! Defeating Krasenkow.
Jan-04-06  EmperorAtahualpa: He is currently Greece's second highest rated player on FIDE.
Jan-04-06  EmperorAtahualpa: (second behind Kotronias obviously)
Jun-13-06  BIDMONFA: Ioannis Papaioannou


May-02-08  niemzo: He just played in the european championship with very good results.
Premium Chessgames Member
  swordfish: Now he's beaten Morozevich in 25 moves with Black. See the 2010 World Team Championships for the game.
May-30-13  engineerX: Surely this victory with black against Morozevich should be one of his notable games
Oct-25-13  spysfi: Great positional understanding by a great Greek player in his match against Nakamura today. An almost flawless play after Naka's dubious (10. Qd3) opening move.
Premium Chessgames Member
  sonia91: He's back in the top 100 (99th in the August '17 list) after more than 15 years (!); he was 85th in the January 2002 list:
