Following known saying, that the person is such one, with what he wants to be, it is possible to consider Alexey Chizhoff as the player of risky gamble style, by what he and refers himself. But... Few accept call and the majority of his games played in right position style with some tactics. Per the last 2 years the style of A.Chizhoff became more and more risky, delivering true enjoying fans of draughts. So, ENJOY...

30 April Selection tournament to the championship of Russia of 2001 on the international checkers, being also a command Cup of Russia was held in a boarding house "Zemchuzina", near town Zvenigorod of the Moscow area from April, 21 till April, 29. Look the entire account HERE. And still a little bit about "draughts politics". Conference of the Russian Federation of checkers was held April, 29. Under the report of credentials committee was present 48 delegates, but we have counted in a hall only 35 persons together with spectators. As they say, comments are superfluous... All the greater interest among delegates are made with people which checkers players see only at conference, and so we shall tell, a little bit far from understanding both draughts game, and draughts problems. From here and quality of decisions accepted by them. To sharp criticism on the part of the president of federation members of presidium as Chertok, Androsov , and the chairman of federation of checkers of St.-Petersburg V.O.Langin in general has refused to participate in similar committee.
