[what is this?]
Georgy Tadzhikanovich Agzamov was born in Almalik, USSR. He was champion of Uzbekistan in 1976 (=Valery A Loginov) and 1981.
Awarded the IM title in 1982 and the GM title in 1984, he finished first at Belgrade 1982 and at Sochi 1984, equal first at Tashkent 1984 and first at Calcutta 1986.
Agzamov died as the result of an accident at Sevastopol. He took a short cut to go swimming, fell between two rocks and became trapped. Passers-by heard his cries for help, but he was too deep down and by the time firemen reached him it was too late.

|Dec-19-04|| ||Benzol: Georgy Tadzhikanovich Agzamov
Born 6th September 1954 in Almalik
IM in 1982 and GM in 1984.
|Dec-19-04|| ||Knezh: Wasn't he the person who died by falling from a cliff? |
|Aug-25-05|| ||yoozum: What a depressing story.|
|Sep-06-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Georgy Tadzhikanovich Agzamov|
|Apr-19-07|| ||vonKrolock: <"He was the first ever Uzbek, and thus arguably the first ever Asian grandmaster. Born in 1954 Georgy Agzamov was not just a strong player – the nightmare of top GMs – he was also a great ambassador for chess."> Fine illustrated report on the First International Agzamov Memorial http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...|
|Jul-20-07|| ||Grim Reaper: He came as the crow flies.|
|Sep-06-07|| ||D4n: Life can be tragic.|
|Sep-06-07|| ||centercounter: The Agzamov variation in the Alekhine's Defense is one of Black's strongest responses to the Modern system. 1. e4? Nf6! 2. e5 Nf5 3. d4 d6 4. Nf3 Bg4 5. Be2 c6!|
The point is that after 6. O-O, then Bxf3! 7. Bxf3 dxe5 gives Black play against the Pe5. Black isn't winning, by any stretch, but it is not easy for White to demonstrate the usual "White" advantage, either.
Naturally, White has other options than 6. O-O. Rather than make this an encyclopedic post, I'll just say that White gains nothing significant. There are lines where Black forfeits the right to castle after a Queen exchange at d8, but that comes to nothing special for White, either.
|Sep-06-07|| ||fm avari viraf: Indeed, a very tragic end of a nice human being & a Great Master! May God Bless His Soul Peace In Heaven.|
|Sep-06-10|| ||DarthStapler: 2...Nf5 is illegal, centercounter|
|Sep-06-10|| ||whiteshark: <DarthStapler: 2...Nf5 is illegal, centercounter> It's <2...Nd5 <>>, of course. d+f are closer of the keyboard than on the chessboard. :D|
|Sep-06-10|| ||miguelito: first asian gm ? no , the first asian gm was eugenio torre 1974 , and rosendo balinas 1976 , both from phillipines .|

|Jun-27-13|| ||csmath: There is an important game Agzamov lost to Maliamov in 1976 in exchange Grunfeld that is missing here in this database. As if he had not played any game in 1976. :-)|

Since when is 1. e4 a bad move??
