I think it can be safely assumed from this that he didn't declare his rating or previous playing history, and probably not his IM title. At most tournaments the first two would be grounds for ejecting him when the organisers found out, even if the name change wasn't grounds because it is now his legal name.GM Arturs Neiksans wrote:Just in round 3 I noticed that in the tournament icognito is playing the notorious Igors Rausis, who has been banned by FIDE to play in tournaments for 6 years! He was wearing a mask and playing on the lower boards with a name of Isa Kassimi thus I did not even notice him.
When I confronted Rausis, what is he doing here, violating the ban, he showed me a new ID with the new name. The tournament organizer, unclear how to solve the incident, decided to call one of the main arbiters in Latvia, for an advice. And the advice from the nation wide recognized arbiter was - it is legal for Rausis to play!
(The FIDE Ethics Commission ruling explicitly states "The ETH decision does not affect Mr Rausis’ rating", so he'll still have an inactive rating even though it's no longer shown on the FIDE website.)
