:( That's terrible, I had heard he'd been in the hospital but was very much hoping he'd pull through. Very, very good Soviet player for all-time, RIP.

It wasn't pretty and he was worn out and out of shape by that point anyhow. It shouldn't take away from the fact that he was the "K" in the famous KLM line and his terrific performances in some big tournaments including the 1987 Canada Cup.
