Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-02-04  Lawrence: GM Viktor Moskalenko has just won first prize in the Catalan Circuit of International Open Chess Tournaments, based on the results of 24 tournaments. Second was Oleg Korneev.

Moskalenko today gave a simultaneous demo at the Molins de Rei (King's Mills) Fiesta Mayor, smashing about 39 of us and losing just one game, with no draws. (I lasted 30 moves, not bad for an old duffer whose estimated Elo is 1000 below his.)

After the exhibition some of us had the pleasure of having a drink with him in a local bar--nice guy!--and meeting his charming wife Tatiana, also a very good chess player.

Dec-15-07  Karpova: Interview with Moskalenko: http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...

On playchess, his handle is <CapNemo>.

<Rated at 2575, Viktor Moskalenko was born in Odessa, Ukraine, on the 12th of April 1960. Married to Tatiana Yastrebova, who incidentally turns out to be a chess player as well (with a FIDE rating of 2037), this chess couple is blessed with a daughter named Mila.

Moskalenko's competitive career blossomed rather late and enjoyed the first wind of active tournament participations in the period of 1980 to 1995. He was Ukrainian Champion in 1987, and gained his grandmaster title in 1992. He competed in many events and enjoyed victories against players such as Morozevich, Khalifman, Sveshnikov, Bronstein and many more. During the period of 1992 to 1994, Moskalenko twice helped Vassily Ivanchuk with his chess preparations.>

<Strategic Ideas & Surprise Weapons for Dynamic Chess Player

<publication date: November 2010, 272 pages!

Blurb:

<The widely-played Winawer Variation has been called 'the jewel in the crown of the French Defence'. It is easy to see why: this is an opening for players who love a real fight. Black immediately attacks White's centre and the resulting positional dynamics offer chances to both sides.

<Viktor Moskalenko, a renowned champion of dynamic play, is the ideal guide to show you both the strategic prin­ciples and the tactical finesses. As a follow-up to his best-selling The Flexible French, Moskalenko has written anoth­er sparkling book brimming with new and original ideas.

<The entire spectrum of the Winawer is covered, but of course Moskalenko has his own preferences and he does not shy away from some daring recommendations. His keen eye for the essence of positions, his talent to find new resources in well-known lines and his own inimitable style will make the 'French Magic' work for every reader. >>>>>>

  whiteshark: Here is a fine article about V.M. and a phantastic game (positional-queen-sacrifice) from him.

http://kevinspraggett.blogspot.com/...

"Viktor Moskalenko is a very strong Grandmaster who lives in Barcelona...

Viktor has an aggressive style of play and has played many great and memorable games. He is also a well known chess author.

Chessbase writes : ''Born in 1960, is a grandmaster from Odessa (Ukraine) but who now lives in Spain. He was champion of Ukraine in 1987 and of Catalonia in 2001, 2005 and 2007. In his surveys he introduces us to his interesting repertoire, which is partially composed of sidelines which offer lots of possibilities for success. Moskalenko lives in Barcelona where he works as a trainer. He is also a successful author of chess books like The Fabulous Budapest Gambit, The Flexible French, Revolutionize Your Chess and The Wonderful Winawer.''

ibid.

May-26-12  goodevans: This guy has some notable wins (Morozevich x2, Bronstein, ...) and some good tournament wins under his belt, but the nature of this loss would have been a bit embarrassing: V Moskalenko vs G Orlov, 1989.
Dec-31-12  Chris1971: Ths guy is a very good author as well. I have enjoyed three of his books and hope GM Moskalenko has more in the works.
Feb-09-13  Wyatt Gwyon: I highly recommend Moskalenko's books on the French.
Feb-09-13  parisattack: <Wyatt Gwyon: I highly recommend Moskalenko's books on the French.>

Seconded. They are quite good. His new tome, The Perfect Pirc-Modern, is due out soon.
