Mar-22-10  Ryan Razo: He must be Vladimir Andreevich Makogonov 's brother.
Dec-16-11  Resignation Trap: I found this photo of Mikhail (left) playing Viktor Arsentievich Goglidze :
Dec-17-11  Resignation Trap: The second of the six Makogonov brothers (Victor, Vasily, Nikolai, Vladimir Andreevich Makogonov and Valentine were the others). Mikhail and his brother shared 1st-2nd in the Baku city championship of 1923, ahead of recent Moscow transplant Nikolai Potemkin, who placed 3rd. The prizes were not what one would expect nowadays: Vladimir won a vase, Mikhail a coffeepot, and Potemkin - 12 bars of soap! In the 1928 Baku Championship, Mikhail scored a convincing victory by winning all 15 of his games. Later in that year, in his quest for the Master title, he lost a match to Nikolay Dmitrievich Grigoriev by a score of +1-5=2. Mikhail was one of 36 players in the 1929 USSR Championship, which took place in Odessa. The players were divided into 4 quarterfinal groups of nine players, with the top three from each group advancing to two semifinal groups. Mikhail scored 5.5/8 in his quarterfinal group, finishing in third place, and advancing to the second semifinal group. In the semifinal group, Mikhail scored only 1.5/5 and was eliminated from advancing further. Boris Verlinsky defeated Mikhail twice in this event: once in the quarterfinal and again in the semifinal, and ultimately Verlinsky finished first in Odessa.

Dec-17-11  Resignation Trap: Due to his excellent result at Odessa, he was awarded the Master of Sports title in 1929. At the national tournament at Tbilisi 1933, he finished =3rd-4th with Leonid Savitsky , behind Vladimir Alatortsev and Viktor Arsentievich Goglidze . Grpoup
Dec-17-11  Resignation Trap: Group photo of Tbilisi 1933: Seated: Sorokhin, Alatortsev, Goglidze. Standing: Kasparian, M. Makogonov, Ebralidze, Samushin (organizer), V. Makogonov, Savitsky.
Dec-17-11  Resignation Trap: At the USSR Championship semifinal in Tbilisi in 1934, he scored 6/13 and tied for 8th-10th. His master's title was stripped in 1935 (along with many other distinguised players) in what was called a "cleansing" of the title.
Dec-17-11  Resignation Trap: In the Baku City Championship 1935, Mikhail finished second behind his brother, Vladimir. Later in that year, Mikhail tied for first in the Azerbaijan Championship with Zhilakov. In the USSR Championship semifinal in Kiev, 1938, he scored 7/17 and tied for 11th-12th. Thereafter, the demands for his profession as a construction engineer gave him little time for chess. He was a casualty of World War II, and died at the Battle of Kursk (July 5-August 23, 1943).
