|Feb-05-07|| ||tanuri: Why do you people cry so much?
Bidmonfa has lots of pictures, and you are not obliged to read his comments, I don't know why does it make your life so much more frustrating
|Feb-05-07|| ||GrandPatzerSCL: Good point, <tanuri>. I visit BIDMONFA's links at times; only when I am not familiar with the player.|
|Feb-05-07|| ||TheAlchemist: Apparently Lutikov and Korchnoi were big friends. They would often write down whole games without even playing, sometimes one would win, sometimes the other, depending on the situation. Once they "played" a game in the King's Gambit that attracted theoretical attention, even Svidler much later told Korchnoi how he could improve on Black's play, but Korchoi jokingly responded he "had" to lose.|
|Feb-05-07|| ||Resignation Trap: <TheAlchemist> You must be referring to this game: Lutikov vs Korchnoi, 1951 .|
|Jul-03-07|| ||parisattack: Lutikov played some interesting games. His Nimzovitch Defense to the KP was outstanding. He played the 1. e4, Nc6; 2. d4, d6; 3. Nf3, Bg4 variation well before Tony Miles popularized it. I'd like to see the Alburt-Lutikov Gunderdam Defense game if you're still around, monopole2313.|
|Feb-04-08|| ||Resignation Trap: Here's another photo of Lutikov, on the eve of the 75th anniversary of his birth: http://e3e5.com/upload/articles/ima... .|
|Feb-05-08|| ||whiteshark: Player of the Day
Picture when he was younger http://www.ajedrezdeataque.com/15%2...
In 1967, the year he received the IM-title, he was placed 2nd behind Spassky but ahead of e.g. Larsen at Hoogovenstoernooi (Wijk aan Zee) ... Final standings: http://www.coruschess.com/tournamen...
He scored 6.5/7 at WORLD STUDENT TEAM CHESS CHAMPIONSHIP 1956
|Feb-05-08|| ||whiteshark: In his book, <The Reliable Past> Genna Sosonko quotes a Russian militia
report from the times that the Soviet Union still existed: <"Citizen <A.S. Lutikov> in a
state of extreme alcoholic intoxication was found dragging on his back another
citizen, who was later found to be M.N. Tal.">|
Here is the whole story by <Hans Ree>:
|Feb-05-08|| ||whiteshark: In a book review of Genna Sosonko's <The Reliable Past> I found some more stuff about Lutikov:|
The best players of course live a good life, but professionals like e.g. <Anatoly Lutikov <(Luka)>> has a very tough life and their difficulties increases with age. Take a look at this excerpt from the portrait of <Luka>:
"Colleagues, friends, drinking companions. Lengthy drinking sessions. Merriment, exchanges of views, and conversations, the content of which was impossible to remember on the following murky morning. He possessed a rare constitution, and in his younger days he could calmly down a litre of vodka in an evening, or perhaps even more. In such a state he would become heavy, and the evening could end anywhere and at any unearthly hour. An extract from the militia records of those years. 'Citizen A.S. Lutikov in a state of extreme alcoholic intoxication was found dragging on his bag another citizen, who later was found to be M.N. Tal.'.....
..... The last period of his life was a difficult one. Deficiencies, camouflaged in youth by optimism and energy, become more evident in old age. In his case this occurred on the background of a severe, debilitating illness: the sugar content in his blood exceeded all permissible levels. He could no longer drink: his head would begin to swim after the first glass. He could no longer concentrate at the board, and his hands, which previously used to choose the required squares for his pieces, would now dispatch them into premature, cavalier attacks, easily parried by his opponents. Lutikov's attacks on the chess board began more to resemble ventures, the victim of which he became himself."
|Aug-21-08|| ||Woody Wood Pusher: This guy sounds like a legend, cheers Lutikov!|
|Aug-21-08|| ||Alphastar: I don't understand all the fuss about BIDMONFA. There are loads of player pages on chessgames.com where there is no picture, however BIDMONFA's link does provide one. He usually also provides extra information like tournament wins.|
|Aug-21-08|| ||zooter: Nice....Came from the page where he beat Tal and this guy looks like he could be a great player. Too sad that he didn't live more than 51|
|Aug-21-08|| ||Alphastar: <zooter> Well, if he was born in 1933 and he died in 1989 as the biography above says, he lived longer than 51.|
|Aug-21-08|| ||mastrocira: BIDMONFA seems to me interesting and
|Aug-21-08|| ||zooter: <Alphastar: <zooter> Well, if he was born in 1933 and he died in 1989 as the biography above says, he lived longer than 51.>|
*cough* *cough* -- I mean 56. Still a young age to die
|Feb-05-09|| ||brankat: R.I.P. Mr.Lutikov.|
|Jul-21-09|| ||hedgeh0g: User: BIDMONFA|
|Aug-30-09|| ||outsider: I remember, when he died, [russian] "Chess Bulletin" (Shachmatnyj biuljetenj") 1989 No. 3 wrote that he committed a suicide|
|Feb-05-10|| ||Broon Bottle: Outsider. You are one of the best present-day undiscovered talents. I thank you for showing a glimmer of light into what we are missing.
|Feb-05-11|| ||alfiepa: Another imagine of a young Lutikov there is in his obituary in the magazine " new in chess" 1992 - number 2 96
the title of the article is
The early creations of Anatoly Lutikov"
authors : Yuri Markov - Boris Shipkov.
|Feb-05-11|| ||Penguincw: R.I.P. <Anatoly S Lutikov>.|
|Feb-05-15|| ||Caissanist: <outsider> If this is true, then Lutikov was by no means the only one. He was one of many middle-aged former Soviet chess professionals who, in Genna Sosonko's words, "simply did not have the means to exist". Others who committed suicide in the midst of horrific poverty included Alvis Vitolinsh and Karen Ashotovich Grigorian .|
|May-27-15|| ||TheFocus: <There were quite a few in the chess world who had a sober outlook on life; but while taking this sober look at the world they could not help but start drinking> - Viktor Kortchnoi speaking about Anatoly Lutikov's love of the bottle in the Soviet Union.|
|Feb-05-16|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, GM Anatoly Lutikov.|
|Feb-05-17|| ||Marmot PFL: Another Soviet GM who played hard and died young.|
