[what is this?]
|GM Igor Vladimirovich Platonov was born in Odessa. At the 1964 Trade Union Championship in Moscow, there were nine players who eventually became Grandmasters in the field, and Platonov scored 9/15 for a very impressive tied 3rd-4th place, as the winner was World Champion Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian. This was his best result so far. Platonov qualified for his first Soviet final at Kharkov 1967 (URS-ch35), where the event was run on a Swiss format with more than 100 players. He finished well above the middle of the field; the winners were Mikhail Tal and Lev Polugaevsky. His performance was good enough to make the team for the USSR's match against Bulgaria, Sofia 1967. Platonov made his career best score in a Soviet final in the 1969 Zonal at Moscow (URS-ch37), where he finished with 12.5/22, to tie for 7th-9th places; the winners were Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian and Lev Polugaevsky. He missed qualifying for the Interzonal by one point. Another successful qualification to SR-ch at Novosibirsk 1971 earned his place for the final at Leningrad 1971 (URS-ch39), where he was very respectable with 10/21 for a tied 12th-13th place, as Vladimir A Savon won. At Cienfuegos 1972 (Capablanca mem.), he had one of his best career results, placing 2nd with 13/19, behind only Anatoly Lein. In November of 1994, he found two thieves in his apartment and they murdered him.|

|Nov-05-03|| ||Resignation Trap: The death of this Grandmaster is a tragedy. In November of 1994, he found two thieves in his apartment. They murdered him. |

|Sep-25-05|| ||Resignation Trap: Igor Vladimirovich Platonov was born in Odessa, Ukraine on January 18, 1934. He first gained the attention of the public by his fine debut at the 1967 USSR Championship (the Swiss System event). He also played in the next four USSR Championships, his best performance was in the 37th annual event when he scored 12.5/22 and tied for 7th-9th.|

GM Igov Platonov (1934–1994) from Ukraine.
|Oct-27-10|| ||Eastfrisian: Is there any photo of him?|
|Oct-27-10|| ||whiteshark: <Eastfrisian: Is there any photo of him?> Unfortunately no success even for Игорь Плато нов. A second try was via tournament photos, especially Hoogovens 1970 and Capablanca Memorial in 1972 (his non-Russian tournaments). GDR magazine Schach 5/1972, p.131 shows the tournament hall but you can barely identify any players. Maybe you have more luck with the Dutch one.|
Maybe User: Petrosianic and User: Resignation Tracould help with some other, more successsful re-sources / research methods
|Sep-27-11|| ||stanleys: Finally found a pic of him,it is from the 37th USSR championship - http://visualrian.ru/ru/images/zoom...|
I don't know why the CG underestimates his result at the 35th championship in 1967 - he shared the 3rd place with Vasiukov and Taimanov: http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%A7...
|Jan-18-12|| ||brankat: R.I.P. GM Platonov.|
|Oct-16-13|| ||kereru: Given that he had a "Soviet Grandmaster" title and a peak rating of 2515, it's odd that he never received even an IM title from FIDE. Some politics going on here?|
|Oct-16-13|| ||perfidious: <kereru>: Platonov seldom played international chess, and during much of his active career, one had to make the norms necessary for a title within a rolling period of three years, else the oldest would lapse and it was back to square one.|
In earlier days also, attaining a particular rating plus norms did not guarantee one a title, though it is clear that, had Platonov lived outside the Soviet Union, he would have eventually made GM.
