  Benzol: He doesn't look like Gennadi. Then again I don't look like my relatives either, much to their relief.
Premium Chessgames Member Honza, thanks for helping us sort out the games between Georgy and Gennadi Timoshchenko. We're going through the corrections now; this is a big help.

  Honza Cervenka: <> I am preparing files with missing games of both GMs and so I am trying to sort it out but it is an extremely difficult task. Games of both GMs are mixed up in every database I have seen and so it is almost detective work to find out who played what and where. For example, there is a game G Timoshchenko vs Marjanovic, 1990 played in 1990 Vrnjacka Banja tournament, which is clearly attributed to Gennadi Timoshchenko (even with acronym of his newly adopted country) but according to's database it was Georgy Timoshenko who played there. I tried to check any other source with information about that event but I didn't find anything. Can anybody here look into Chess Informant from 1990?

Apr-21-07  CFMEU: This Timoshenko won the Sydney International Open 2007. Thanks for coming out here mate!
