Gennadi Anatolyevich Timoshchenko was born in Chelyabinsk*. He was awarded the IM title in 1976 and the GM title in 1980. In tournaments he was 1st at Polanica Zdroj 1976, 1st at Varna 1977, 1st at Slupsk 1979, 1st= at Helsinki 1986 and 5th= at Plovdiv 1988. In 1989 he won the Keres memorial, sharing 1st place with Lembit Antsovich Oll and Jaan Yukhanovich Ehlvest.
Honza Cervenka: <Benzol> Almost certainly they are not related. Both are Ukrainians (although Gennadi Timoshchenko has now a citizenship of Slovakia) and their surnames are very similar but it is just a coincidence.
By the way, since 1995 Gennadi Timoshchenko is as a Slovak player listed in FIDE register as "Gennadij Timoscenko" which is a Slovak (as well as Czech) phonetic transliteration of his name, of course without diacritical marks. See http://www.chesslive.de/scripts/ser...
