[what is this?]
Maxim Sorokin was a Russian GM (1992) who learned to play at the Chess School of Alexander N Panchenko. He was a highly respected chess-trainer: he was put in charge of the Russian women's team, he was the chief trainer of the Elista Grandmaster School, and also seconded Sergei Rublevsky in the 2007 Candidates matches in Elista. In 2005 he achieved his peak rating, an impressive 2599.
GM Ruslan Shcherbakov wrote, "Max's erudition was almost legendary among his friends--it seemed that he knew everything, be it mathematics, medicine or foreign languages". (http://www.chesstoday.net/ July 2nd, 2007)
Sadly, in 2007 he died of complications from a car accident that occurred driving home from the Candidates matches in Elista.
