Darya Tkachenko



Best results:

4 times women World champion.
2 times women European champion.
2 times mother of wonderful children.


Reading books, articles, watching historical and scientific films, listening my husband playing piano or guitar. 

Playing piano was a dream of my childhood, but I never studied. Now I can play the only song: Confessa (known by its performance by Adriano Chelentano), "where to press" shown by my husband.

Persons I admire:

Le comte de Monte-Cristo


My draughts career began almost 20 years ago and I have been having lots of interesting moments, tournaments and victories.

I remember well my first title of European junior champion in 1999 in Poland, and its confirmation in 2000 in Italy.

In 2001 I won a title of World junior champion in France.

My main achievements in women championships fall on the period of studies at the National University of Kiev which was one of the most interesting periods of my life and had a significant impact on my draughts performance.
