Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-19-03  Ali Makongoro: A. Galkin is real contender by all the way.
Premium Chessgames Member
  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.

GALKIN, Alexander
Champion - Championship of the World, Youthful, 1999

Feb-07-06  babakova: ooh BIDMONFA... u so crazy
May-23-07  bauernfresser: That guy draws a lot. Up to now, exactly half of his games, 132 out of 264, are draws with 30 moves or less.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: He obviously flew below my radar screen, but momentarily he is playing Russian Superfinals (2011), such being the case ...
Aug-09-11  polarmis: For a chess player he's got a rather surprisingly number of other jobs!

Aug-09-11  waustad: So now days he's more politician than chess player.
Mar-06-12  BIDMONFA: Alexander Galkin
