|Sep-16-09|| ||whiskeyrebel: Med's my fanny! This guy sounds like a couple of my more bullheaded, self destructive drinking buddies from over the years. He's 36 but acting like he thinks he's 22 still. He can avoid rehab or worse (injury, death) if he just tones things down a bit. I hope he does.|

readers feedback at chessbase
some say these some say that. this case judgement was now thrown to the bar of public opinion.
many of those condemning this guy didnt even see his actual state during the tournament, its all base on how other see it, just like one kibitzer say naka is so rude on players stronger than him at icc, the guy saying dont even have an account at icc.
if you bring this to the court of law now withn Tkachiev with his lawyer and mr righteous accusing him of being in a state of alcohol intoxication that time he played a chess game together with his lawyer also, what are the chances that Tkachiev will be convicted?
will hang him if his guilty after.
|Sep-16-09|| ||timhortons: 1.<arbiters should learn how to use breath alcohol test machine>. http://healthguide.howstuffworks.co...|
this is better than letting chucky pee in a test tube..
2.arbiters should likewise learn how to use automated external defibrillator and should have a standbye one in cases of open and close tournament, most prefebrably open tournament where middle age player plays alot.As in the past month a case of sudden cardiac arrest while chess game is ongoing resulted to death. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automa...
i think this two is better done than having grandmasters undergo randonm drug evaluation during a tournament.
<if arbiter will be arm of this two thing nobody can bull--- an arbiter>
|Sep-16-09|| ||ontocaustic: arbiters should also just let players drink if they want to, we are all adults and maybe it helps tschaikov's nerves to have a little nip before and after/during a game, that way it's fair since the sober people are allowed to stay sober, and he wouldn't have to make up the excuse about self-medicating, fake an apology, and so on|
|Sep-17-09|| ||whiskeyrebel: You make a good point. There's been no rule against drinking expressed by the directors at any USCF tournaments I've ever played at (I started in 1969). I've seen plenty of players sucking 'em up at bars in tournament hotels. Does anybody really care on the FIDE international level, unless a player loses it and starts making noise or disturbing other players in another way? I wish Eric Schiller would pop in and contribute his arbiter's point of view. Dr. Schiller? Are you out there?|
|Sep-19-09|| ||hedgeh0g: I think this whole thing is being completely blown out of proportion. This is only "big" news in the chess world, which, let's face it, doesn't really have much news.|
On a global scale, this is about as significant as your granny cheating at the Sunday bingo.
|Sep-19-09|| ||HeMateMe: Tal and a few others probably showed up still drunk, for a morning game, and no one gave a rat's behind about it. Maybe its a sign of the finely tuned media we have these days, and the automatic transfer of info on the internet. If some one gets a pimple, it gets twittered about.|
|Sep-19-09|| ||Open Defence: if you say his name fast and loud it sounds like a karate chop|
|Sep-19-09|| ||tamar: Gesundheit!|
|Sep-19-09|| ||Open Defence: that too!|
|Sep-19-09|| ||Open Defence: apparently his chess skills are not to be sneezed at|
|Sep-19-09|| ||MarvinTsai: a try on pun: a scotch game Morozevich vs Tkachiev, 2001|
|Oct-07-09|| ||JointheArmy: Apparently there is a legitimate betting site that has these odds for Tkachiev.|
<Tkachiev to lose any game because of arriving late 8/1
Tkachiev to be disqualified for being reported for playing drunk 25/1
Tkachiev to drink a full bottle of vodka at the same time he plays one game 100/1
Tkachiev to fall asleep during a game and losing on time 100/1
Tkachiev to throw up over the board during any game 200/1>
|Nov-17-09|| ||TheaN: ^although I smirked, they should so something about that. It's good for a laugh but it does continue the whole story. Which gives a lame aftermath a worse outcome, IMO. I think Tkachiev learned his lesson because the so well known story became public worldwide, I guess we'll never see it happen again.|
|Jul-09-10|| ||LarsenBentYou: A modern day Tal, health wise.|
|Sep-04-10|| ||nummerzwei: French line-up for Khanty-Mansijsk

This has to be a mistake.
|Jul-21-11|| ||rogl: I recommend to take a look at Tkachiev's chess site http://whychess.org/. A few examples of what the site provides are a couple of nice articles by Seirawan, an interesting interview with Grischuk and live computer aided(Houdini) coverage of the top tournaments.|
|Feb-23-12|| ||Kramnikfan87: What's the matter with whychess web site?|
|Feb-24-12|| ||bronkenstein: <Kramnikfan87: What's the matter with whychess web site?> It is frozen for quite some time , due to funding problems , and Tkachiev still (?) hopes that it might continue working someday , according to <polarmis>.|
|Feb-25-12|| ||Nemesistic: This guy's beaten Chucky, Moro, and even the very pleasant Korchnoi in 1994, but his finest and most famous achievement in his chess career to date has to be in 93 when he played and beat AJ Goldsby! According to AJ Goldsby this guy was a total unknown, unrated back then though!!! |
Should i laugh or cry in frustration at Goldsby, because he really sickens me with his BS!
|Feb-26-12|| ||JoergWalter: picture of Tkachiev
|Feb-26-12|| ||Nina Myers: Wow, what a jim-dandy! No wonder that the hormonal balance of Pensacolan Master got freaky during their game.|
|Mar-18-12|| ||Brecker: Hm Vladislav likes to play the Slav... interesting|
