[what is this?]

GM Vladislav Ivanovich Tkachiev was born in Moscow on November 9, 1973. When he was eight years old he and his family moved to Kazakhstan. It was there that he picked up the game of chess, winning the Kazakhstani Youth Championship in 1982. He became an IM in 1993 and a GM in 1996. He won two Kazakhstan championships before moving once again, this time to France. He now lives in Cannes and plays for the French federation, becoming the national champion in 2006 after a tie-break match with Laurent Fressinet. Tkachiev won the European Individual Championships (2007), beating out seven other players in tie-breaks.

Tkachiev is also a noted blitz player, capturing the 2004 Moscow Blitz Superfinal ahead of Alexander Morozevich.

Sep-19-09  Open Defence: apparently his chess skills are not to be sneezed at

  JointheArmy: Apparently there is a legitimate betting site that has these odds for Tkachiev.

<Tkachiev to lose any game because of arriving late 8/1

Tkachiev to be disqualified for being reported for playing drunk 25/1

Tkachiev to drink a full bottle of vodka at the same time he plays one game 100/1

Tkachiev to fall asleep during a game and losing on time 100/1

Tkachiev to throw up over the board during any game 200/1>

Nov-17-09  TheaN: ^although I smirked, they should so something about that. It's good for a laugh but it does continue the whole story. Which gives a lame aftermath a worse outcome, IMO. I think Tkachiev learned his lesson because the so well known story became public worldwide, I guess we'll never see it happen again.
Jul-09-10  LarsenBentYou: A modern day Tal, health wise.

This has to be a mistake.

Jul-21-11  rogl: I recommend to take a look at Tkachiev's chess site A few examples of what the site provides are a couple of nice articles by Seirawan, an interesting interview with Grischuk and live computer aided(Houdini) coverage of the top tournaments.
Feb-23-12  Kramnikfan87: What's the matter with whychess web site?
Feb-24-12  bronkenstein: <Kramnikfan87: What's the matter with whychess web site?> It is frozen for quite some time , due to funding problems , and Tkachiev still (?) hopes that it might continue working someday , according to <polarmis>.
Feb-25-12  Nemesistic: This guy's beaten Chucky, Moro, and even the very pleasant Korchnoi in 1994, but his finest and most famous achievement in his chess career to date has to be in 93 when he played and beat AJ Goldsby! According to AJ Goldsby this guy was a total unknown, unrated back then though!!!

Should i laugh or cry in frustration at Goldsby, because he really sickens me with his BS!

Feb-26-12  JoergWalter: picture of Tkachiev

Feb-26-12  Nina Myers: Wow, what a jim-dandy! No wonder that the hormonal balance of Pensacolan Master got freaky during their game.

  OhioChessFan: He's beaten Pono, Chucky, MVL, Moro, and Korchnoi, and he's not worthy of being a player of the day?

  juan31: Are quite different times and achivements the GMI, M. Tal was world champion and has inspired hundreds perhaps thousands of people to play chess. I dont say that Master Tkachiev Is someone to

  perfidious: Indeed, Tkachiev is a formidable player; after all, to win in A J Goldsby vs Tkachiev, 1995 was no mean feat.
