Mar-05-08  hovik2003: I know who is Mershad(Mehrshad) Sharif, he was a very good Iranian master, so <Microdot> why don't you stop this IM business!
Mar-05-08  hovik2003: <Microdot>
Agge shoma aghaye Sharif hastid, khahesh mikonam man ra mi bakhshid va do kalame farsi be man minevisid.
Mar-05-08  DUS: And who are you, Udit Narayan, a supper GM?
Mar-05-08  Caissanist: There should be a ChessBookie bet on whether that really is him or not; sounds like I'd get pretty good odds betting on yes.

Of course <microdot> would be the big winner regardless.

Mar-05-08  pawnofdoom: <hovik2003> just admitted to being Gabriel Sargissian (dunno if I spelled it right) on the Morelia-Linares page. Anyone else got confessions?

I don't mind giving away my name, but its pointless because im 1500 and not famous (yet...)

<tpstar> It was <SnoopDogg> who claimed to be Giorgi Margvelashvili, he admits and apologizes for it in his user description.

Mar-05-08  pawnofdoom: Btw, <Microdot> if you can tell me what "Z" stands for in "your" name then I'll believe that this really is you
Mar-06-08  positionalgenius: OK, lets reveal it. I am Garry Kasparov.
