Sep-09-06  BIDMONFA: D Chuprov


Jun-23-11  wordfunph: <2011 Russian Championship: Rules such as not being able to leave the playing area were never seriously enforced, but this year, some players were in for a shock. GM Dmitry Chuprov, who had left the area twice, was informed by the arbiter his game was forfeit despite of suspecting him of cheating, as that was not the case, but simply because he had blatantly ignored the rules.>

Sep-15-12  stanleys: Very sad news: GM Chuprov has died yesterday. RIP

  Benzol: I'm stunned, 33 is no age at all. What happened?

  Stonehenge: 34, I believe. Awful news :(

RIP GM Chuprov.

You will not be forgotten.

GM Chuprov was very talented chess player of original style of play but problems with alcohol had become the serious obstacle to his further development. He needed more help.

At the beginning of the 64th Russian Championships Men - Higher League 2011 in Taganrog, Russia Chuprov lost two games by forfeit. In the first round he simply did not appear and was given a loss.

In the second round he played against FM Sergey Mikhailov.

Mikhailov, Sergey - Chuprov, Dmitry

Black's position is preferable. Chuprov thought he had been winning. But at that moment he left the playing area (he went down the stairs to the street) and the arbiter declared the game lost by Chuprov.

  cro777: The regional Tyumen news website writes that the past few years was a difficult period in Chuprov's life, and it all ended tragically.

His peak ELO was 2596, achieved by him in January 2008.

At the 17th Russian Team Championship Major League 2008, Chuprov achieved a nice win over Alexander Shimanov. (GM Shimanov recently won the 2012 Russian Chess Championship under 20).

"A bit surprisingly White with his extra rook is just deadly lost" (GM Mikhail Golubev).

Sep-17-12  stanleys: <Benzol: I'm stunned, 33 is no age at all. What happened?>

Unfortunately the same problem as Alexey Vyzmanavin, Valentin Arbakov, Alexander N Panchenko, Sergey Kiselev
and many other talented players :(

Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <stanleys> Thanks. IIRC Viktor Korchnoi said of Paul Keres that a heart attack was a chess player's occupational disease. Very sad.


Sep-18-12  stanleys: I was talking about alcohol :(
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: Oh. LOL. Perhaps you should publish a book titled "Drink Like A Grandmaster".

  cro777: "In the chess world alcoholism is a big problem. Numerous world champions suffered from severe alcoholism: Alekhine and Tal come readily to mind. Sometimes Tal had to be carried away from his game because he was so drunk!...

GM Vladislav Tkachiev, an extraordinarily talented chess player, twice champion of France, 2007 European Champion and winner of countless international tournaments, also a very popular person and well liked by his colleagues and chess fans, has a serious drinking problem as well. The night before the final round of the 2008 Dresden Olympiad Vlad did a bit too much partying and was not able to appear for the final round the next morning, ruining the medal chances for the French team." (Kevin Spraggett)

At a prestigious international tournament in Kolkata, India, Tkachiev showed up drunk at the venue. He was facing Praveen Kumar and about 10 to 15 minutes after the game started, he began showing signs of inebriation. Then he fell asleep with his head on the chess board. After attempts by both Kumar and the organizers to wake Tkachev proved futile and he couldn’t make his moves within an hour and a half as the regulations required, Tkachiev was declared ‘timed run-out’— a rarity in international chess — when officials at the event decided he wasn’t in a condition to carry on. The Indian player walked away with a point.

Sep-18-12  Parbrahman: These players' chess talent made their early deaths tragic. But thousands of ordinary alcoholics die young every day and they're not talked about as tragic losses. So in this case of talented chessplayers dying young because of alcoholism, it was chess which was the problem, not the alcohol.

Believe that quote actually referred to Leonid Stein.

  perfidious: <Benzol> Here's a link with Korchnoi's remarks:

Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <perfidious> Thanks Alan. I must hunt out my copy of Korchnoi's "Chess Is My Life" and have another read of it. It's quite fascinating to get the insights of someone who witnessed events first hand.


Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Benzol> Yes, that was an interesting book, though one I've never owned somehow-saved that link so that can I peruse it at leisure.
