Margus Tuvikene started to play renju in 1988. His best result was the first place in Youth World Championship in 1996. He got the 2nd place in Team World Championship in 1996, too.

Tuvikene: "I always remember one tournament in Moscow. We were there with Ando. I played well and was finally sixth. But one game is still on my mind when I think of funny happenings in tournaments. I was playing with A. Mikhailov and he had only about ten minutes left to make his last moves. But I had about an hour. So I didn't rush too much. The board was almost full and I desperately wanted to win. I knew that my only chance is to fool him somehow. He was a smoker (maybe still is) but he couldn't smoke in the playing room. His hands trembled more and more and my chance to win rose. So when I had about 10 minutes left I made my move or two and he got fooled. 120 moves were made and I had to show my win but it seemed that nobody was interested. Finally there was a referee and my job was done. My opponent ran out and smoked at least three sigarettes. I still laugh at this sometimes. "
