Jul-31-13  Gallicrow: And winner of the rather dodgy Don Cup 2010 International tournament!

Jul-31-13  ughaibu: As he says, "scary and sad", mainly the latter.
Jun-20-15  waustad: Though he hasn't played a FIDE rated game at classical time in around five years, he has been very active in the recent past in rapid and blitz games.
Oct-02-15  dumbgai: This guy has a 2792 FIDE blitz rating. Are he and Bogdanovich really better blitz players than Anand and Kramnik? It's an interesting question, but I suspect that FIDE blitz ratings are still largely provisional due to the high k-factors and the relatively few games played.

  MissScarlett: <World blitz top 10, February 2016: what is the guy ranked #6? Any comments?>

May-10-16  Conrad93: Nobody knows who this guy is, but his blitz rating 2812! He is high rated than many of the top 25 players in the world.

He has dropped to #8 in the world, but he is only 8 points lower than Anish Giri.

  MikhailGolubev: GM Shkuro and his *blitz achievements*, discussed in Emil Sutovsky's FB (Rus. lang.)
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: Just give us the lowdown - is he a crook?
Premium Chessgames Member
  MikhailGolubev: some revelations (in Russian language) about the little known GM Iuri Shkuro, now 5th (!!!) in the world blitz rating: ---
more on Shkuro in a 2016 post by GM Y.Vovk (Engl.) a dubious 2010 long control event:
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: I think he means <Yes!>
Premium Chessgames Member
  MikhailGolubev: Sure.
Jun-06-17  SeazerCZ: He is playing online blitz on from time to time, but his perfomances are very poor. Definitely not the 2800 strenght
Aug-15-17  Nina Myers: <Iuri @#$%kuro> Fake #4 in blitz live rating with 2828.0
Premium Chessgames Member
  MikhailGolubev: Infamous GM Iuri Shkuro to appear in Omelnyk:
Premium Chessgames Member
  MikhailGolubev: GM Iuri #Shkuro took part in the UKR Rapid Ch, scoring 5/9, performance 2255 He is FIDE world's #6 in blitz.
Oct-13-17  dumbgai: So he's like the Alexandru Crisan of blitz ratings?
Premium Chessgames Member
  MikhailGolubev: 2 <dumbgai> no, surely worse: Crisan wasn't anywhere near World's Top 10, a shy guy, he just wanted to be the best of Romania
Premium Chessgames Member
  MikhailGolubev: Shkuro - GM Norms (2008): https://mikhailgolubev.files.wordpr... Such people as Pushkov (acted as arbiter) and Pilavov were involved in both tournaments.
Premium Chessgames Member
  MikhailGolubev: In my opinion, "GM" Iuri Shkuro should be disqualified. My open letter to the Ukrainian Chess Federation President, Viktor Kapustin (lang. Rus) FB: PDF: https://mikhailgolubev.files.wordpr... posted by CN:
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: If you're serious about making this case a cause célèbre, I propose a detailed letter (but not too much detail) in your best English to Mark Crowther, for publication in TWIC, should be your first port of call. The paper-shufflers at the Ukrainian Chess Federation and FIDE, will already be fully aware of Shkuro, and appear to be doing nothing.
Oct-22-17  dumbgai: <MikhailGolubev> Perhaps he doesn't deserve such attention, but it could be entertaining for Mr. Shkuro to be thrown into a tournament with his 2800+ peers such as Grischuk, Vachier-Lagrave, Aronian, etc. Much in the same manner that Mr. Crisan played in tournament with real GMs and got thoroughly thrashed.

  MikhailGolubev: <MissScarlett>I do not feel that there are many people outside Ukraine who are interested in this topic: maybe they consider the official FIDE blitz rating to be unimportant, otherwise it's hard to understand them at all. So, perhaps, for the foreign public I should write an open letter about why the blitz ratings ARE important - first, and only then write a letter about Shkuro, but this seems to be too much effort, I don't have time for this as of now. Regarding my open letter in Russian, Mark Crowther and some other journalists are informed, and it is up to them to react anyhow or ignore the topic. I have my opinion, but don't expect me to make all the work. If it's not important for others, OK, it's their choice.
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: If not now, then when? If not you, then whom?
Premium Chessgames Member
  MikhailGolubev: Infamous Iuri Shkuro is not in the world's top Blitz rating list any longer. It's, likely, only because he hadn't played any rated blitz games for 1 year. So, his scandalous blitz rating 2828 is preserved, but considered as inactive.
