  wordfunph: Grandmaster in 2008 and current 2341 rating..

Jul-29-13  Maatalkko: This is a false GM. Computer analysis by Ken Regan just proved the 2010 "Cup of Don" tournament to be a sham:

Given that he played in at least one fabricated tournament, his rating graph becomes quite suspicious: It is shown that he rose meteorically to the required GM threshold in 2007 before dropping sharply below.

Knowing this, we can further investigate the tournaments in which he gained the GM norms, knowing them to be fabricated. Here is just one of them:

The players Borovlev and Zaichenko, who took a dive in this event, are fabrications. Borovlev has one recorded game that turns up in a search, and Zaichenko has zero. This is never the case with legitimate 2400 players. Moreover, Zaichenko's history reveals more "Cup of Don" events dating back to 2001 and 2002:

Inquiry according to this method will uncover a vast web of pre-arranged tournaments, fake players, and, ultimately, the organizers of the cheating ring.
