Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-10-08  MichAdams: <Never heard the name Toni Najdoski? The 31-year-old Macedonian appears to be the new Crisan of international chess. Currently rated 2600 FIDE, he has been ranked in the top 100 in the world for several rating lists. The graduate of the Moscow Physical Institute of Chess is not without some chess culture, but his rise to the top is at best mysterious. Since January 2000, his rating has gone from 2548 to 2600 with a dip in July of 2000 to 2492. This reflects a particularly awful result in the Goodricke International in India where he scored less than fifty percent against a field rated below 2300. One of his losses was to a ten-year-old girl. Everyone can have a bad game or bad tournament, but it appears rather strange that in the only event in which Najdoski's games appear, he didn't even perform at the FM level. Yes, it's true. Try to find games of Najdoski's from 1992 to 1999. All I could locate was a loss in 1999 at a team tournament in Budapest to Hungarian 2300 Monica Grabics.>

The above dates from 2001, and FIDE appear to have only one record of his playing since:

A Russian tournament comprised of assorted nondescript East Europeans; who could doubt its veracity?

Jul-10-08  MichAdams: Needless to say, but I'll say it anyway, Macedonia is one of the most corrupt countries in the world.

Jul-10-08  tino72: Joint 84th out of 179 according to your link.

Needless to say but I'll say it anyway: you are talking garbage. Please desist.

Jul-10-08  MichAdams: I'm not going to stop posting garbage for you or anybody else.

Listen; if, as a nation, you're ranked in a corruption list below countries such as Colombia and Saudi Arabia, and equal with the likes of Jamaica and Swaziland, then you are, by definition, one of the most corrupt places on the planet.

And if you chance to look at the other link, TI's Global Corruption Barometer for 2007, you'll learn that Macedonia is ranked in the top quintile (along with Albania, Kosovo, Pakistan, Nigeria et al.) of countries most affected by bribery.

What is it about these figures that you don't understand?

  wordfunph: <MichAdams> <tino72> bottomline is... Tino got his GM title. Verify and check with FIDE officials if there are indeed irregularities in obtaining his GM belt..
May-05-12  King Death: What I don't understand is how the corruption in the player's homeland has anything to do with his GM title, unless <MichAdams> is trying to claim that because this player's Macedonian he must be corrupt. <MichAdams> should stuff a sock in it. At least so far FIDE hasn't stripped Najdoski of the title:

Once <MichAdams> gets a word in I'm sure it'll happen though.

May-05-12  DanielBryant: MichAdams signed up in summer 2008, posted several times, and hasn't returned since. Seems like a hit and run type account that is best ignored here, especially as he's given us no reason to draw any logical connection between this player and any alleged Macedonian corruption.
May-05-12  Shams: As a troll he burned brief, but oh so bright.

  tpstar: <MichAdams> was the reincarnation of <WMD> after he was triple banned. Some people believe he continued on in the <BobCrisp>/<AlphaMale>/etc. lineage but I disagree. That bit about "Messages posted by Chessgames members" really bothered him at the time. Really.

He had a definite activist streak, trying to rectify past chess injustices, some real and some imagined.

May-05-12  King Death: <tpstar> I've seen some kibitzes of this <WMD> and I could buy into it even if you hadn't said something, there was a mean streak in him for sure. I don't get why the CG disclaimer would bug anybody, that's routine to me anyhow.

P.S. It was funny to see <WMD's> last post with him telling somebody not to get a Premium Membership unless the site got better mods. Maybe the admins stuffed a sock in there for him LOL.

  tpstar: <King Death> Two categories of chess professionals seem to raise random kibitzers' ire the most: computer cheaters, and people who obtain permanent titles through shaky and/or questionable methods. The reference to Alexandru Crisan attempts to draw a connection between this player's ability and their rating and their title.

When the chessforum system came about in 2006, there was legitimate concern that certain posters would use their space as a rulebreaking free-for-all frenzy. Take one guess at who got mentioned. =)
