  wordfunph: FIDE awarded the GM title to Farrukh Amonatov in 2002 and won a game against Filipino GM Eugenio Torre in 2002 Bled Chess Olympiad.

Happy Birthday GM Amonatov!

Jun-16-09  ToTheDeath: WOW!! How come I've never heard of this guy?

F Amonatov vs A Timofeev, 2007

Premium Chessgames Member
  sisyphus: Tajikistan's first (and only) grandmaster.

He'd probably attract more attention if he didn't live in Moscow.

Jun-16-09  WhiteRook48: should live in Tajikstan
Jul-09-09  myschkin: . . .

"Tajik Grandmaster Farruh Amonatov won the World Cup qualifying tournament chess in the city of Tashkent. In total, the tournament has been played 3 trips - two men and one - among women. The best in the tournament for men became Farruh Amonatov, who received the first ticket and Tajikistan will present at the World Chess Cup in Khanty-Mansiysk."

Feb-06-10  notyetagm: Wow, what a tactical shot by Amonatov in round 7, 56 ♕f8x♗c8+!! .

<F.Amonatov – A.Gabrielian

Opponents have played Vinavera system in French defense. Having searched the overweight, White lost three pawns. To a victory in a position on the diagram conducted - 55... Kb8 or 55... Ka7. And 55... Qh5? lost because of 56.Rh8! Why? We’ll see:

55...Rh4? 56.Qxc8+!!

56…Rxc8 57.Rxc8+ Qb8
It is necessary to return a Queen. On 57... Ka7 would follow effective 58.Nc6 +! bxc6 59.Rf7 +, with a mate

58.Rxb8+ Kxb8 59.Rf8+ Ka7 60.Kxg3

And White realised the piece:>

60...Rh1 61.Rf7 Kb8 62.Nxe6 Ra1 63.Kf2 Rxa5 64.Ke3 Rb5 65.Kd4 a5 66.Rf8+ Ka7 67.Nc7. Black resigns.>

Feb-07-10  Don Cossacks: GM Amonatov is a tactical genius and has already won many tournaments in Russia and frequently in full-point ahead manner.I hope we see more of him.
May-01-12  DanielBryant: Tajikistan really only has one GM? I find that hard to believe.

  HeMateMe: Don't tell Sasha Cohen. He'll be there tomorrow to make a movie "about my glorious career as smartest man in Tajikistan!"
Jun-16-12  YoungEd: Am...on...atov...the world, looking down on creation!
Jun-16-12  TheTamale: <YoungEd>: Classic!
Jun-23-16  sonia91: Congratulations on winning the Eurasian Blitz Chess Cup (2016), ahead of several top players!
