30.04.2007 ANNOUNCEMENT OF OUR PUBLICATION: School of Alexander Panchenko
25 years ago Vera Nikolaevna Tikhomirova had suggested to establish an all-Russia chess school. One section of it became famous as the School of grandmaster Alexander Panchenko (another section was headed by Evgeny Sveshnikov). Many well-known grandmasters had grown up in it both in chess and human sense. The school gave much also to those who had not become chess professionals. In May our site will publish materials about Panchenko School written by its graduates, grandmasters A.Galliamova, S.Rublevsky, M.Ulibin, S.Volkov, R.Sherbakov, V.Milov, M.Sorokin, D.Yevseev, E.Kovalevskaya, A.Prudnikova, T.Shumiakina, by present student A.Timofeev, by WIM R.Bilunova. An excellent text was sent to us by A.Zizevskikh, a student in 1981-1990. Grandmaster Panchenko gave us an interview and prepared some of his works for publication at our site. The idea to tell about schools (in many senses) of M.Botvinnik, V.Smyslov, M.Dvoretsky, I.Zaitsev, E.Sveshnikov, about chess legacy of I.Bondarevsky and other outstanding trainers, was one by IM Sergej Nikolaev. He also took a burden of accomplishing the project. Realizing that it is better to move forward using invaluable (often undervalued, sometimes unknown) works of brilliant teachers and coaches of the past, we hope that our new project will be of interest to our readers. Watch for our publications!
