|Apr-09-07|| ||perfidious: It's been a good many years now, but Mikhail Mukhin was another promising young Soviet master who, if my memory hasn't totally failed me, passed on at a very early age, through illness.|
|Apr-09-07|| ||Ziggurat: <perfidious> Thanks for this information.|
|Sep-17-07|| ||percyblakeney: Mukhin had a couple of good results in 1972, first he participated in Suchumi and was leading after ten rounds, ahead of a field containing among others Tal, Taimanov and Savon. He ended up fourth (Tal won), but had players like Kholmov, Hübner and Gufeld 2-3 points behind.|
A few months later he was one of the 22 players in the Soviet Championship in Baku. Once again Tal won, and Mukhin shared third (0.5 from second) after beating Bronstein and going +4. He didn't play any tournaments on the same level in his final years, and died at the age of 29 in 1977.
|Sep-17-07|| ||whiteshark: My guess is that these players are identical:
Mikhail A Mukhin and Evgeny Mukhin
In the enourmous database there were a lot of Mukhin dublets, only differing in the first name.
|May-24-14|| ||siggemannen: Does anyone know details regarding his illness? He seemed promising indeed.|

|Jun-26-14|| ||WCC Editing Project: |
Mikhail A Mukhin and Evgeny Mukhin are definitely different players.
At the <USSR Republics Team Championship 1972>, Mikhail Mukhin played for Kazakhstan and Evgeny Mukhin played for Uzbekistan.
You can see them both here in the player list from this event:
