|Mar-15-07|| ||Laskerfan82: Glad to see him as player of the day. I will always remember how my former coach IM Ilya Botvinnik spoke with great reverence about Tukmakov. To translate one of his comments (our lessons were in Hebrew): "Tukmakov was a very strong Grandmaster. VERY strong." |
Analyzing Tukmakov's games games is rewarding for the aspiring student. Many of them are strategically rich. His best games are from the late 1970s through the mid 1980s.

|Dec-18-11|| ||wordfunph: thanks <ketch>!
here's the book description..
<Opening, middlegame and endgame are the three universally recognized stages of a game of chess, but what about the art of preparation? Winning starts with planning before the game, teaches legendary chess trainer Vladimir Tukmakov in this enlightening and entertaining work on a neglected subject.
Exploring and understanding, prior to the game, the strengths and weaknesses of your next opponent and being aware of your own strong points and shortcomings, are a key to success. Tukmakov describes how planning has become a systematic process, how methodical preparation works, and which critical steps you have to take.
The role of the computer in preparing for a game has grown tremendously, and Modern Chess Preparation explains how it is used by top players to get organized for success. But you will also learn the limitations on the use of chess engines and databases and how disastrous it can be to overly respect them and rely on them. A separate chapter is devoted on how to prepare for all-important games, games that will decide a tournament, a match or a even an entire career.
Modern Chess Preparation is about more than just opening preparation. It also teaches you how to immerse yourself in order to find the best approach to the game. With powerful anecdotes and many instructive high-level games, Tukmakov explains how, as a competitive chess player, you can organize your homework, focus your efforts, and arrive at a viable game plan.
Vladimir Tukmakov is a chess grandmaster and a former national champion of Ukraine. In his active career he won many tournaments as well as gold medals in international team competitions. He is universally acknowledged as an outstanding chess trainer and coach.>

Around 1970 or so the guessing game was who would be the next Soviet Super GM - Karpov or Tukmakov...
|Jan-16-14|| ||cro777: GM Vladimir Tukmakov, after his active career, became an esteemed chess coach. He is new coach and second of GM Anish Giri. Tata Steel Chess 2014 is Giri's first event with Tukmakov.|
|Jan-21-14|| ||EvanTheTerrible: And the event has been a mighty success for Giri.|
|Sep-19-14|| ||Mudphudder: 2400 games on this site?!!!!|
|May-11-15|| ||zanzibar: 2400 games and they're still missing this gem from him: |
<Tukmakov--Zilberman, Nathan R (UKR-ch Kiev 1966) 25 C05 1-0>
Lombardy uses this game anonymously, introducing it with <"The second player's penchant for originality gets him into trouble">.
I often differ with Lombardy's analysis (of course I have engines, he didn't back in 1972). Sometimes I differ with his lack of analysis. For instance in the game mentioned at White's 17th move:
(White to play - premoves: 15...c4 16.b5 Na5)

Now White has a subtle move to find to win, a move I find impressive but Lombardy doesn't even comment on.
Here's RUSbase's version of the game (I should submit it to <CG> for game 2401):
[Event "Ch Ukraine"]
[Site "Kiev (Ukraine)"]
[White "Tukmakov Vladimir B (UKR)"]
[Black "Zilberman Nathan R (KYR)"]
1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 Nf6 4.e5 Nfd7 5.Bd3 c5 6.c3 Nc6 7.Ne2 f6 8.Nf4
Qe7 9.Nf3 fxe5 10.Ng6 hxg6 11.Bxg6+ Kd8 12.Bg5 Nf6 13.dxe5 Kc7 14.O-O
Bd7 15.b4 c4 16.b5 Na5 17.Re1 Qd8 18.Qd4 Be7 19.exf6 gxf6 20.Bf4+ Kc8
21.Bf7 e5 22.Nxe5 fxe5 23.Qxe5 Bc5 24.Qxd5 Qb6 25.Rad1 1-0
|May-11-15|| ||Retireborn: <z> That game is in Informator (presumably where Lombardy got it from) but it is annotated very superficially (by Yudovich) and the strength of 17.Re1 attracts no praise there either. 21.Bf7 does get a ! though.|
|May-23-15|| ||TheFocus: <In Dortmund, as well as in Leningrad and in Sochi, I played pretty well, but clearly I did not score high enough. It was something new: usually I had more points than I deserved. It seemed that I had matured as a chessplayer. My positional understanding got deeper, my opening knowledge had grown, and in general my game had become more balanced and versatile. At the same time, I had the feeling that something was important was gone for good. The mental tension that previously had never left me during the game was now replaced by a calm and sober view of the position. I was not sure if it was for better or for worse> - Vladimir Tukmakov, writing in Profession:Chessplayer.|
|Nov-29-15|| ||SteinitzLives: Bought his new book on Bluffing and Calculated risk in chess, real enjoyable. |
He has a unique take on the subject and deals with it as some who see chess as more science than art might not be all that comfortable with. Tukmakov and most of the rest of us seasoned tournament players (especially when we observe Naka or Carlsen's games) know what he is writing about, and it is about time someone took this subject head on, and he does, giving great historic perspective, and many modern games too.
A most useful and instructive read. Lots of diagrams, so the 1800+ player won't need the chess set out for most of the game or fragments he provides as examples.
|Mar-05-16|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, GM Vladimir Tukmakov.|
