May-03-07  Knight13: FIDE rating of 2082? How does a person who reached 2574 drop down 500 points?
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: According to there are a number of Sergeys, and one of them does have a rating of 2082.

Think just grabbed/used the wrong Sergey...

Apr-10-09  noctiferus: A classic: it happened the same to Sergey Volkov: rating 2045, more or less, performing 600+ Elo points better in the last Russian team champ :)
Jan-16-11  BIDMONFA: Sergey Ivanov

IVANOV, Sergey
