Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-03-06  skiskichess5: According to the April 2006 rating lists this guy has 2568 rating but is still an IM.

Could he be the IM with the highest rating?

Nov-21-07  BIDMONFA: Boris Savchenko


Nov-22-07  Karpova: GM Savchenko from Russia was born in 1986.

Pictures: (facing Bocharov)

Nov-22-07  pawnofdoom: He didn't do too bad at the Blitz cup. He just popped out of nowhere, but he didn't fair awfully against all those strong people like Anand.
May-24-08  Augalv: The Final tournament of the Moscow Chess Championship took place May 12-18, 2008.
