|Nov-19-03|| ||Ali Makongoro: A. Galkin is real contender by all the way. |
|Nov-19-03|| ||Eggman: 24 year-old Alexander Galkin, the player of the day, is Russia's 24th-ranked player, and with a rating of 2607, is ranked 95th in the world. |
|Nov-19-03|| ||PinkPanther: I suppose he just kind of gets lost in the sea of Grischuks, Malakhovs, and Morozevichs that Russia constantly produces. |
|Jun-15-04|| ||Catfriend: He is a fairly strong GM, but without real victories against the greatest.|
|Oct-02-04|| ||teme: I know him online he is very nice he helps scholastic players a lot, like me.He also gives em some free lessons sometimes. |
