MAKOGONOV, Vladimir Andreevich
|Jan-22-06|| ||meloncio: <Gypsy><Resignation Trap> I have an old Argentinian book (1949 edition), about this Tournament. According to it, Panov didn't play from round # 13 to the end, leaving the tournament by sickness.|
|May-14-06|| ||DeepBlade: Queen's Gambit Declined, Tartakower (Makagonov-Bondarevsky) Syst (D58)|
|May-16-06|| ||Gypsy: <meloncio> Thx. That explains Panov's realy poor performance.|
|May-16-06|| ||Ron: Im my honest opinion, the systems Makoganov created against the King's Indian Defense, and the Grunfeld, are pretty good.|
|Aug-27-06|| ||DCP23: <Jafar219>: <as I know Makogonov was born in Azerbaijan (Baku city) not in Russia.>|
Makogonov was indeed born in Azerbaijan, but not in Baku! He is from Nakhichevan.
|Aug-27-06|| ||Honza Cervenka: I have just sent some Makogonov's missing games to chessgames.com. He really deserved his GM title though he got it only late as "honorary" one in age of 83.|
|Aug-27-06|| ||WTHarvey: Here are some of Makogonov's crucial positions: http://www.wtharvey.com/mako.html What's the best move?|
|Dec-10-06|| ||Whitehat1963: Although it's not mentioned in his bio here, he was apparently one of Kasparov's first chess teachers.|
|Jul-25-07|| ||ahmadov: I have never heard of this man before...|
|Aug-09-07|| ||Resignation Trap: In the 1940 USSR Championship, Makogonov defeated Smyslov, Keres <and> Botvinnik : V Makogonov vs Botvinnik, 1940 , V Makogonov vs Keres, 1940 and V Makogonov vs Smyslov, 1940 . After eleven rounds, he occupied one of the top five spots, but several losses followed, and Vladimir failed to win a major prize. See http://www.chesspro.ru/_events/2007... for a good report of this tournament (in Russian).|

Makogonov was also very well known as a chess coach. He helped Vasily Smyslov prepare for his 1957 World Chess Championship match against Mikhail Botvinnik . He trained Vladimir Bagirov and Genrikh Chepukaitis ,and on Mikhail Botvinnik 's recommendation, became one of the young Garry Kasparov 's first teachers. His brother, Mikhail Makogonov (1900-1943), was also a chess master; they tied for first in the first Baku chess championship in 1923

|Oct-14-08|| ||brankat: <Resignation Trap> A great album indeed! Thank You very much.|
|Jul-23-10|| ||GrahamClayton: The "Makagonov rule" states that in positions where no other important matters need to be considered, one should identify one's worst placed piece and bring it to a more active square.|
|Aug-27-10|| ||Jafar219: <Jafar219: <chessgames.com> as I know Makogonov was born in Azerbaijan (Baku city) not in Russia.>|
Oh my GOD.I wrote this 5 years ago.Time is flying and I couldn`t learn English yet.
Makagonov is from Azerbaijan and he is basic creator of Azeri chess school.
Thanks DCP23 for correction.

Thanks for posting such a high quality link for biographical information: http://sultanov.azeriland.com/chess...
<Vladimir Makogonov> served as second to <Vassily Smyslov> in both the 1954 and 1957 WCC matches against <Mikhail Botvinnik>.
In the Botvinnik-Smyslov World Championship Match (1954), both <Vladimir Simagin> and <Makogonov> seconded <Smyslov>.
-Mikhail Botvinnik, "Botvinnik's Complete Games (1942-1956) and Selected Writings (Part 2)" Kean Neat ed., transl. (Olomouc 2012), pp.27,31. -Originally published in Mikhail Botvinnik, "Match Botvinnik-Smyslov" (Fizkultura i sport, Moscow, 1955).
In the Botvinnik-Smyslov World Championship Return Match (1957) both <Igor Bondarevsky> and <Makogonov> seconded <Smyslov>.
According to the conditions for the 1957 match, only one second was allowed to help analyze adjourned games. In this case, that was <Makogonov>.
"The World Chess Championships of 1957 and 1958"
(Harding Simpole 2002 -original copyright Golombek 1957), p. 8
<Smyslov> testifies to the value of <Makogonov's> aid:
<"During the match against Botvinnik, Makogonov was one of my coaches <<<And the fact that I became world champion>>> is due in large part to his work. He expounded his ideas clearly and persuasively. I remember his excellent analysis, which he summed up with the help of diagrams. This method is best to fix in memory the most important opening positions.">
(translation by Google. I adjusted some of the punctuation, diction and phrasing for clearer English idiom and sense)

The Makogonov h3 in the KID seems to be experiencing a bit of a renaissance. No doubt because <Shams> began playing it. ;)
Perhaps Mak's b4 sortie in the Grunfeld is due for a deeper look?
