|Nov-22-06|| ||Maatalkko: Either a very enigmatic or a very unremarkable Player of the Day. He boasts not a comment on his profile or on any of his games.|
|Nov-22-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Ilkka Antero Kanko|
|Nov-22-06|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: His rating was always around 2200. What else can you expect...|
|Nov-22-06|| ||mahmoudkubba: I was thinking in another direction: Suppose a good player from Germany at the time of WWII what do any one do for that, So I was thinking suppose Finland is an enemy to something .. what is the behavior of those others toward a player, is he/she a good player from one side and is he/she is a good person on the other side. Who is right and who is wrong is another question of course and etc.. Yepppeee|
|Nov-22-06|| ||fromoort: <mahmoudkubba> What?|
|Nov-22-06|| ||Karpova: <mahmoudkubba> you are asking if others were able to differentiate between a person's playing skills and his character?
Well, depends on the character of the other person. Fischer for example still has fans. And many people appreciate his games.|
|Dec-09-06|| ||mahmoudkubba: <Karpova>: As far as I know it is a big problem whether in ch. or other sports or really in L...I...F...E.|
|Nov-22-09|| ||talisman: happy birthday Mr. Kanko. I hereby nominate mahmoudkubba for the most hilarious k-bitzer.|
