Grandmasters Beware!

During the recent Kramnik vs Topalov match, I swear I heard Topalov's manager, Silvio Danailov, being described as the Don King of chess by a Sydney radio. Well, it seems that there is another chess promoter who really does want to be Don King. Israeli GM Artur Kogan's story has an important lesson for GMs around the world.

Hi there!

Thanks for publishing this (sad) story!
I hope that not only GM's will be aware,and that 2007 will bring us more positive chess news,much less sad chess stories,less cheaters and much more justice and respect for a great game that really deserve it!
