Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,
On December 3 a great chess theorist GM Georgy Borisenko passed away at the age of 91 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. Dmitry Aleev (Borisenko's pupil) recollects, "He was born on May 25, 1922, a veteran of Great Patriotic War, all his life he devoted to chess. He was an optimist and a man of great life energy. He was a second of many World Champions; he trained Nona Gaprindashvili and his wife Valentina Borisenko (Belova), one of the strongest chess players of the last century.

In 1965 Borisenko was offered a job to train the chess players in Armenia, Ural and Uzbekistan. He chose Tashkent and worked there as a Trainer. Among his pupils are GM Anton Filippov and GM Timur Gareev. (Fide)
