Aug-18-04  acirce: Kasparov's second right?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Zenchess: Yes, he's Kasparov's long-time second.
Oct-23-05  WMD: <There are two Dokhoians. Dokhoian on his own and Dokhoian within Kasparov or his mother's field of tension. When he is on his own, Dokhoian does not mind a chat, but he isn't often on his own. He spends most of the day in Kasparov's company. Analysing together or talking together about what they have analysed. When you meet Dokhoian together with Kasparov, he has a commendable knack of knowing his place. Unsmiling and serious, he looks ahead of himself in silence, absent-mindedly, as if he doesn't notice when people are talking next to him. Why put in a word if you risk it being the wrong one? What is to be done or what is to be discussed is determined by Kasparov. When they go to a restaurant together, Kasparov decides what Dokhoian will have.> Dirk Jan ten Geuzendam, Linares!

Oct-23-05  azaris: You're clearly overexaggerating. From the third picture it is clear they are not in fact joined at the hip:

Oct-26-06  BIDMONFA: Yuri Dokhoian


Aug-13-09  arsen387: Dokhoian is an Armenian GM, now representing Russia. He was Kasparov's long-time second and now he is the second of Karjakin after the latter also 'switched' to Russia.
Premium Chessgames Member
  GrahamClayton: One of the stipulations of Dokhoian's contract with the Russian Chess Federation is that he is forbidden from coaching/training non-Russian players.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Stonehenge: RIP GM Dokhoian, another death caused by the Coronavirus.
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: I was worried just on seeing his name in the list of <Recent Kibitzing>.

  MissScarlett: His face, especially the mouth, reminds me of William John Donaldson, but John has more hair, obviously.
Jul-03-21  Eastfrisian: R.I.P. GM Dokhoian.
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: Still waiting for to acknowledge his passing. Perhaps he's preparing a fitting tribute.

  HeMateMe: <7/3/2021 ? The chess world mourns the passing of Yury Dohkoian. The successful coach and long-time second of Garry Kasparov died on July 1 in Moscow due to a Covid-19 infection. | Photo: Eteri Kublashvili / Russian Chess Federation>


<or many years, he worked for Garry Kasparov as a trainer and second until Kasparov retired from tournament chess in 2005. From 2006 to 2011, Dokhoian was trainer of the Russian women?s national team and won the gold medal with them at the Women?s Chess Olympiad in Khanty-Mansiysk. He also coached Tatiana and Nadezhda Kosintseva and helped them to reach top spots in the world ranking. From 2011 to 2015, Yury Dokhoian was coach of the Russian men?s team.

In 2009, Dokhoian began a collaboration with Sergey Karjakin. Dokhoian also coached many other Russian talents, including Andrey Esipenko.

In 2007, FIDE awarded him the title of senior coach.

Yury Dokhoian died of a Covid-19 infection on 1 July 2021 in Moscow. He was 56 years old.>

  MissScarlett: When did he start working with Kasparov as a second? Friedel states: <I met Yury in the early days of my association with Garry Kasparov,> but since Friedel knew Kasparov from the mid-1980s, can this be correct? Both his main recollections date to the period 1996-97. Of course, it's possible that Dokhoian worked with Kasparov long before he became his main second (and unofficial bodyguard).
