Nov-02-10  BIDMONFA: Maxim Turov

TUROV, Maxim

Jul-28-11  jamesmaskell: Ive followed Turov for a while now, partly because he crops up in so many tournaments you cant avoid his name. A truly professional player. His game's come on a long way in the past year or so. A very reliable opening repertoire.
Jul-28-11  jamesmaskell: Maxim Turov shared first with Vladimir Georgiev and Yuri Vovk in Dutch Open 2011 today scoring 7/9.
Jul-30-11  jamesmaskell: Standings confirm Maxim Turov won the Dutch Open 2011 on tiebreak and a TPR of 2710 with Yuri Vovk 2nd and Vladimir Georgiev 3rd.
Aug-28-11  jamesmaskell: Another month, another Turov tournament win, this time the BDO Premier tournament, on the sounds of it by an Armageddon tiebreak game against von Kampen.

From the looks of the website, this tournament was a qualifier for the Tata Group C. Fantastic news if true as he deserves it.

  Penguincw: Beats Danielian with the black pieces today. Group C could be an easy tournament for him.

  DarthStapler: Turov, dinosaur hunter
Jan-14-12  Everett: He is a very strong Caro-Kann player, particularly in the Advance and Bronstein-Larsen variations. If anyone here plays those lines you may find his games very helpful.

  Penguincw: < "Russia’s Maxim Turov took the 100-euro day prize in group C for his win in 31 moves with black from a Reti against India’s Adhiban Baskaran. Turov shares the lead in this section of the tournament with Sweden’s Hans Tikkanen, who defeated Britain’s Matthew Sadler, also with black, in 42 moves from a French Defense." >

Hang on there!

Jan-29-12  jamesmaskell: Maxim Turov wins Tata Group C with 10.5/13, half a point ahead of Hans Tikkanen.

  Penguincw: Congratulations to Maxim Turov. I had a feeling it would be rather Turov or Sadler.

  Check It Out: Turov is a chess animal!
Mar-14-12  plimko: Another success for Maxim! 1st for tie in Agzamov Memorial (UZB) 6-14 March 2012 http://www.uzchess.uz/
Apr-22-12  plimko: Impressive!

http://ratings.fide.com/chess_stati...

Apr-22-12  plimko: One lost (with Grachev) in the last 79 games!
Apr-22-12  plimko: I have to correct myself. His last tournament was:

http://www.metzalekhine57.fr/open/2...

With a defeat at the first round.

Jun-17-12  jamesmaskell: Turov currently playing in the Master Open at Voronezh (3.5/5). He came 8th in the rapid chess section with 6.5/10 and came 13th in the 960 variant section with 4.5/10.

There are PGN files but they dont contain the moves, a great shame with so many grandmasters in the field.

  eternaloptimist: I'm surprised that nobody has made a comment (until now) today since he is the POTD today but he is a "no name" GM. This must be the reason for this. I'm not familiar w/ him at all but I've noticed that he looks like something out of a horror movie in this bidmonfa pic...lol!: http://www.bidmonfa.com/turov_maxim...
Although he is rated over 2600 now so he's got my respect for his chess playing ability!

  Penguincw: Happy 34th birthday Maxim Turov!
Dec-07-14  Everett: Again, C-K players are advised to check out his games. Recently played 4..Qc7 in the Advanced.
Dec-07-14  waustad: If he were not in Russia or another huge chess country he'd probably be playing first board in the olympiad. In a pond full of orcas, he's not that high on the food chain.
