Maatalkko: Since I made those posts on Monday, I have found other players with IM/GM titles gained in Pushkov connected events.
A "participant" of the Don Cup, Kiselev has played in the three Cappele-la-Grand opens, an Aeroflot open, and a few team events. He performs at hist rating to well below it. I can't link to his chessgames profile, because he doesn't have one - that's how rarely active he is, despite being only 25 years old and a Grandmaster at age 19. None of that Junior Championship nonsense though - Kiselev always played close to home, usually in Pushkov's events.
Alexey Kornyukov, http://ratings.fide.com/card.phtml?...
Another participant of the confirmed fake event, Kornyukov is also a Pushkov regular. He features in many of GM Ghane's brilliant successes during his "visits" from Iran (Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if Ghane has never even been to Russia): http://ratings.fide.com/tournament_..., http://ratings.fide.com/tournament_..., http://ratings.fide.com/tournament_..., http://ratings.fide.com/tournament_..., http://ratings.fide.com/tournament_.... Like many other titled players Pushkov has produced, Kornyukov is rarely active outside Rostov-on-Don and his outside performances have been OK to bad.
Kazbek Akbaev This "strong IM" has attempted to enter a few rapid and blitz events, and it has been an epic fail. Don Cup participant - enough said.
http://ratings.fide.com/hist.phtml?... Good old Tikhiy (not in our database) is the stand-up enforcer in Pushkov's little ratings mob. He is available to be the arbiter when Pushkov wants to play, or he can take a big dive when a VIP like Ghane visits town. http://ratings.fide.com/tournament_.... Of course, sometimes it's Tikhiy's day in the sun too. http://ratings.fide.com/tournament_..., http://ratings.fide.com/tournament_..., http://ratings.fide.com/tournament_.... Notice the extreme generosity of "Sergey Dotsenko", a player who introduced himself with a solid 2288 performance and disappeared in the blink of a few rating lists. Also note the Arbiter, "I. Shinkarenko", who is so elusive that those three events are the only mention of him on the entire Internet. Of course Good Ol' Tikhiy played with Houdini-like strength at the Don Cup.
Ghane, Pilavov, Kiselev, Kornyukov, Kazbek, and Tikhiy are the "worst of the worst" Pushkov accomplices. They recur again and again in Pushkov's events, and they tend to play 100 to 300+ points below their "Pushkov peaks" when exposed to direct sunlight (though none of them are total Crisans; no doubt they really do play and win against some of the fat fish in Pushkov's carefully tended pond). Of course, I could add other names to this list, but I am just keeping to the ones who are almost certainly knowing participants in the fraud.
