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

KANKO, Ilkka

Nov-22-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: His rating was always around 2200. What else can you expect...

  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.

  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.
