|Feb-01-05|| ||Resignation Trap: Anatoly Stepanovich Lutikov was born in Leningrad (St. Petersburg) on February 5, 1933. |
He was a member of the victorious USSR team at the World Student Team Olympiad in Uppsala, Sweden. He scored 4.5/5 as first alternate. His teammates were Viktor Korchnoi , Lev Polugaevsky , Mikhail Tal , Vladimir Antoshin and Evgeni Vasiukov .
His first major international tournament outside of the USSR was at Beverwijk 1967, where he finished second with a score of 10.5/15, only half a point behind Boris Spassky . This was a GM performance, but he was awarded the IM title as he came into the tournament as an untitled player.
He finally earned the GM title in 1974.
Notable successes were first at Dubna, 1971, equal first/second at Leipzig, 1973, and first at Albena, 1976.
Lutikov first qualified for the USSR Championship semifinal as early as 1951, but it was not until 1959 that he played in his first USSR Championship final (the first of six). His best result in these tournaments was third place in 1968/9.
Lutikov died in Tiraspol, Moldavia on October 15, 1989.
|May-12-05|| ||Runemaster: Lutikov had a great record against Tal (5-2 according to the database).|

LUTIKOV, Anatoly S.
|Apr-03-06|| ||wallytherhino: why do you [BIDMONFA] keep spamming the bidmonfa website on almost every single notable chess player?|
|Apr-03-06|| ||Benzol: <BIDMONFA> seems to be setting up individual player links from his own site to this one.|
|Apr-03-06|| ||offramp: BIDMONFA, who I believe to be some kind of bot, not a human, has created what I like to call the world's smallest internet maze.|
You click on any of his links and you see a page with a photograph and a 'games' link. If you click the 'games' link you end up where you started from. You are back on the street again.
|Apr-03-06|| ||Eric Schiller: <offramp> I agree, and BIDMONFA is the only resident of my ignore list. Stangely, (s)he/it seems to concentrate on our site, according to a google search.
Since Chessgames has profiles and photos, there is NEVER any reason to visit "his site" which just points back here.|
The annoying thing is that searches that should bring folks here might instead turn up a link to his useless site, forcing them to waste time.
Certainly I consider the BIDMONFA site one of the least useful sites in the chess world, with absolutely no reason to justify its existence. And the spamming of links here is simply intolerable.
|Apr-03-06|| ||monopole2313: I've never seen a photograph of Lutikov (or of many other players featured here), so I appreaciate BIDMONFA's links. There was a game
Alburt-Lutikov which went 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Qe7 and was won by Lutikov. I'll post it if no one else does.|
|Apr-03-06|| ||Karpova: Yes, a picture of Anatoly Lutikov justifies all this spamming. My life took another turn after seeing this photo.|
|Apr-03-06|| ||MorphyMatt: Hasn't he been player of the day before?|
|Apr-04-06|| ||AlexandraThess: <Karpova> He really seems very hot!|
|Apr-04-06|| ||AlexandraThess: God, forgive his sins!|
|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.|
