Jan-25-07  BIDMONFA: Ivan Akimov


Jan-25-07  AAAAron: How is this guy player of the day!? He loses more than he wins. I guess it must be hard to come up with 360 players of the day, where they have more wins than losses.... I won't be studying this guy, thats for sure!

  dalbertz: <AAAAron> Check out the birthday.
Jan-25-07  rover: <He loses more than he wins.>

That is almost certainly not true.

Jan-25-07  AAAAron: <rover> His list on this site shows 13 wins 25 losses. Including losing all his games, except a couple of draws, in 2003, which are his last games on this record. Other than his birthday being today, he should NOT be player of the day. Maybe we should study this guy to learn what not to do. Yeah, thats the ticket! What this site doesn't show is how Akimov went undefeated for 2004-2006. I funny.

  whiteshark: every year again :D
Jan-25-10  Albertan: According to the website Ivan Akimov played in the UralFR Championship 2008 open (Ekaterinburg) where he scored 3 wins, 2 losses and four draws.
Jan-25-10  WhiteRook48: he draws less than he loses

  Abdel Irada: <AAAAron>: It should be borne in mind that the database doesn't contain every game Akimov played in the past 20-plus years.

One doesn't get and hold a rating over 2300 if one *really* loses more often than not, so we can infer that the games appearing here are likely to be ones played against particularly strong opposition and therefore not representative of his results as a whole.

Meanwhile, Akimov is far from the only recent POTD who *appears* to have a losing record. And those of us whose ratings have never reached 2300 should think twice before ridiculing those whose have; I assure you that getting to that level requires a fair amount of both talent and hard work.

Jan-25-13  DarthStapler: His name reminds me of Isaac Asimov
Jan-25-13  Kikoman: Happy 31st Birthday IM Ivan Akimov! ^^
