|Mar-01-05|| ||Albertan: An interesting story concerning Tukmakov is this. He played in the Canadian Open in Edmonton back at the beginning of the 90's. After a few rounds as he notched win after win he began playing the higher-rated Canadian players in the event. Apparently all the top-rated Canadians had planned their openings together:they chose to play the Queen's Gambit. In response Tukmakov chose to play the Blumenfield Counter-Gambit:Opening Explorer
After that game, all the top Canadians played the Blumenfeld against Tukmakov.However GM Tukmakov knew the opening better as he won all the games he played a White (except one in which he gave up a draw to Canadian Deen Hergott) Deen Hergott|
Tukmakov was interviewed in 2000.The interview can be read at: http://members.lycos.co.uk/csarchiv...
Tukmakov served as captain of the winning Ukrainian Men's team at the 36th Chess Olympiad: http://www.thechessdrum.net/tournam...
Tukmakov talks about the Kramnik-Kasparov match and other chess matters in an interview at: http://members.lycos.co.uk/csarchive/
Vladimir Tukmakov is one of the greatest players of all time at refuting an unsound attack. He certainly proves it here. Have a look at Sax- Tukmakov: Sax vs V Tukmakov, 2001
Tukmakov participated in 13 USSR championships between 1967 and 1987, scoring approximately 50%, and coming in second in 1970 and 1983. In 1984 he played on the USSR Olympic team. Tukamkov is one of the few trainers in the chess world with a certification from the FIDE: http://www.jovanpetronic.com/fidetr...
|Jan-03-06|| ||LancelotduLac: Tukmakov's deep positional understanding made him a serious force to be reckoned with in mid to late 70s. He went on to become an even more impressive coach than he was competitor, now serving as head coach of Ukraine's team, the current Olympic champions.|

TUKMAKOV, Vladimir B.
|Mar-15-07|| ||Laskerfan82: Glad to see him as player of the day. I will always remember how my former coach IM Ilya Botvinnik spoke with great reverence about Tukmakov. To translate one of his comments (our lessons were in Hebrew): "Tukmakov was a very strong Grandmaster. VERY strong." |
Analyzing Tukmakov's games games is rewarding for the aspiring student. Many of them are strategically rich. His best games are from the late 1970s through the mid 1980s.

|Dec-18-11|| ||wordfunph: thanks <ketch>!
here's the book description..
<Opening, middlegame and endgame are the three universally recognized stages of a game of chess, but what about the art of preparation? Winning starts with planning before the game, teaches legendary chess trainer Vladimir Tukmakov in this enlightening and entertaining work on a neglected subject.
Exploring and understanding, prior to the game, the strengths and weaknesses of your next opponent and being aware of your own strong points and shortcomings, are a key to success. Tukmakov describes how planning has become a systematic process, how methodical preparation works, and which critical steps you have to take.
The role of the computer in preparing for a game has grown tremendously, and Modern Chess Preparation explains how it is used by top players to get organized for success. But you will also learn the limitations on the use of chess engines and databases and how disastrous it can be to overly respect them and rely on them. A separate chapter is devoted on how to prepare for all-important games, games that will decide a tournament, a match or a even an entire career.
Modern Chess Preparation is about more than just opening preparation. It also teaches you how to immerse yourself in order to find the best approach to the game. With powerful anecdotes and many instructive high-level games, Tukmakov explains how, as a competitive chess player, you can organize your homework, focus your efforts, and arrive at a viable game plan.
Vladimir Tukmakov is a chess grandmaster and a former national champion of Ukraine. In his active career he won many tournaments as well as gold medals in international team competitions. He is universally acknowledged as an outstanding chess trainer and coach.>
