  MissScarlett: <Okay, I will tell you one name, the story which was discussed during a long period of time. In 90ís Andrei Makarov was planned to come to the government of the Russian Chess Federation with Kasparov's support. So, before this he decided to enhance his chess qualification and get the title of either Master or IM, I donít remember. There were two tournaments; and itís not even about the fact that those tournaments werenít played, but according to the rules, the player had to show his game in order to get the title. So, when the specialists were showed the games, theyíve found out that the games have already been played before. I mean itís hard to have any clearer proof. Nevertheless, that wasnít followed by any implications. The application was send to FIDE, which approved it; even with this kind of clear proofs.>

  MissScarlett: I learnt about this unhappy story in <The Batsford Book of Chess Records> by Iakov Damsky.

He gives the score of three 'phantom' games: Makarov vs Vladimir Kozlov, actually M Czerniak vs Alekhine, 1939; Makarov vs Normunds Miezis, actually Dolmatov vs Beliavsky, 1990; Makarov vs Sergey N Yuferov, actually Ujtelky vs Bondarevsky, 1964; all three wins for Makarov as Black.

<Makarov, later to be President of the Russian Chess Federation, enacted some more of these phantom games too; with their help he gained the International Master title (!), after only sitting down to play 5 or 6 real games in the course of two 'qualifying' tournaments.>

Unfortunately, that's all the detail we're permitted, so it's even unclear as to where, when and against whom these real games were supposedly played.
