I find it interesting that there are very few russians leaving comments.
i would think that russians play on russian servers.
Kasparov wasnt russian and Kosteniuk i believe is also not russian though, even though i cant recall Kosteniuk being world champion. But i guess Khalifman was russian though
Interesting, Kasparov is said to be Russian on wikipedia... is this a mistake?
Kosteniuk won the Women's World Chess Championship 2008. Do you mean this does not count as a world championship title?
no im probably wrong i thought he was half armenian and half from azerbaijan but my memory always seems to trick me.
for me it doesnt count, unless there is a biological reason why could be champion without beating the strongest man.
I don't know if he was born russian, but I'm pretty sure he played for russia.
what a weird pic
