Azgamov memIn the same week when Korchnoi turned 78 and Smyslov 88, another famous veteran had a notable success: 64-year-old GM Vitaly Tseshkovsky from Russia won the strong Georgy Azgamov Memorial in Tashkent, ahead of GMs like Kasimdzhanov, Amonatov and Volkov.

The 3rd Georgy Azgamov Memorial took place 15-26 March in Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan. The strongest player from Uzbekistan is of course former FIDE World Champion Rustam Kasimdzhanov, but another well-known player is their number two, Anton Filippov. Both played in the Azgamov Memorial but it was Vitaly Tseshkovsky who finished clear first with 7.5/9.

Tseshkovsky won the 1986 USSR Championship finishing clear first, after he had won it shared with Mikhail Tal in 1978. In 2004 he managed to qualify for the Russian Championship Super final which was eventuall won by Garry Kasparov.

Below are all games by Tseshkovsky from the Agzamov memorial. Unfortunately the game against Volkov seems to be incomplete.
