|Jul-15-09|| ||whiteshark: Thanks <SwitchingQuylthulg>! It was actually a reminder for me, wasn't it? :D|
|Dec-29-09|| ||gezafan: If Maroczy had loose skin as described in Kmoch's account he may have lost a great deal of weight in the past.|
|Mar-03-10|| ||talisman: happy birthday geza.|
|Sep-10-10|| ||GrahamClayton: <Maatalkko>News flash! Maroczy plays a posthumous correspondence game with Korchnoi! http://jeff.zaadz.com/blog/2006/4/d... Here is the game:
Any thoughts? Do you think the game is a reasonable guess at how Maroczy would play? Can we upload it to the database and make it Game of the Day sometime? That would be the easiest pun ever. I can think of about four right now.
Here is discussion of this game:
|Dec-01-10|| ||backrank: It's truly a shame that Maroczy is not in the chessgames srolldown menu for choosing a player (while some much lesser players are there).
He was one of the very strongest players a the beginning of the 20th century, and for some time he was considered as a worthy challenger for the World championship.|
|Mar-03-11|| ||talisman: <backrank> talk to WHITESHARK, he started a MOVEMENT and had Leonid Stein added. He had Bumper Stickers and everything ordered when Chessgames finally capitulated.|
|Mar-05-11|| ||Penguincw: Penguincw: Quote of the Day : <"The White position is still a little better, but that is not enough to win against Capablanca"> Rare to see a QOTD from a game.|
|Aug-18-11|| ||whiteshark: <myschkin: "In 1931, during a chess tournament in Bled, he challenged Nimzovich to a pistol duel at dawn Nimzovich refused." (Trivia)>|
Thanks <mysche>, I was just as. :D
|Sep-18-11|| ||markwell: His biography on this site should at least mention that he was one of the original group of Grandmasters.|
|Sep-18-11|| ||wordfunph: The first Grandmaster to die was Geza Maroczy.
rest in peace GM Maroczy..
|Sep-18-11|| ||parisattack: Fine player he was; one of quite a few past masters who haven't received their fair share of attention. |
Definitely a world champion level player for a few years. Chessmetrics shows him 1, 2 or 3 from 1900-1910.
I've been studying his games on someones 'tip' a few months ago - perhaps it was <wordfunph>.
|Sep-18-11|| ||wordfunph: off-topic
sir <parisattack>, i'm sure you are interested to buy these vintage books..
hope you re-open your forum soon :)
|Sep-19-11|| ||parisattack: Hi, <Wordfunph> I hope all goes well for you!|
Just not enough interest in chess literature for my forum. New material more than adequately handled at <chessbookforum> where BTW I just added a short post.

< "The White position is still a little better, but that is not enough to win against Capablanca." >
--- Annotation by Maroczy
|Mar-03-12|| ||Penguincw: R.I.P. Maroczy, one the greatest Hungarian masters that ever lived!|
|Jul-15-12|| ||Karpova: Dr. Emanuel Lasker: <Gegenwärtig gibt es 2 Spieler, die den Anspruch erheben können, um die Ehre der Weltmeisterschaft zu kämpfen: der Deutsche Dr. Tarrasch und der Ungar Geza Maroczy.>|
'(Neue) Wiener Schachzeitung', 1907, page 95.
Translation: Currently (i. e. 1907) there are 2 players who can lay claim to the honour of playing a match for the Worldchampionship: the German Dr. Tarrasch and the Hungarian Geza Maroczy.
|Aug-12-12|| ||Karpova: Maroczy won a small tournament in Budapest, 1899:
1. Maroczy 3.0 (+3 -1)
2. Gyozo R Exner 2.5
3. Miklos Brody 0.5
Source: Page 53 of the 1899 '(Neue) Wiener Schachzeitung'
And on page 54 it is reported that Maroczy beat Exner in a match right after the tournament with +3 =3 -0.
|Aug-12-12|| ||Calli: <Karpova> It is "Wiener Schachzeitung" up to 1916. In 1923 publication resumed as "(Neue) Wiener Schachzeitung". The link collection you are using Game Collection: Wiener Schachzeitung clearly states this.|
|Aug-12-12|| ||SVarden: I have always wondered why Maroczy is not included in the list of names of the player search function. Although his career as a chess professional often took a back seat to his career as a government official, he was easily a top five player for a decade and was one of the first players to have a deep understanding of positional play. I guess his legacy has suffered due to the fact that he was not known for flashy scarifies or mating attacks. He relied more on careful preparation, the accumulation of small advantages, and great patience.|
|Aug-13-12|| ||Karpova: Thanks <Calli>! I didn't know your collection and found the editions of the 'Wiener Schachzeitung' via Edward Winter's chesshistory.com (in C.N. 7728 Olimpiu G. Urcan brought this to attention. The Österreichische Nationalbibliothek gives the title as '(Neue) Wiener Schachzeitung', hence I followed their example). |
<SVarden> actually, this has been brought to <chessgames.com>'s attention. One of the parameters for choosing who appears on the drop down list is the number of games in the database. So Varlam Vepkhvishvili gets on the list while Maroczy doesn't. Maroczy has been praised by Capablanca and I cited Dr. Lasker above who said in 1907 that only Dr. Tarrasch and Maroczy were worthy WC challengers. Apart from that, only political problems prevented a WC match in 1906 between him and Dr. Lasker.
|Nov-19-12|| ||Cemoblanca: Géza had really great hair. I would be happy with half as much. :D|
|Nov-19-12|| ||The17thPawn: <Cemoblanca> - I would be happy with half of his chess ability. This guy could play with the best.|
|Nov-19-12|| ||Cemoblanca: <The17thPawn: <Cemoblanca> - I would be happy with half of his chess ability. This guy could play with the best.>|
LOL! Indeed! Géza was a giant! 1 of my fav players of all time & not only because of his nice hair! ;)
|Mar-03-13|| ||Abdel Irada: <Thanks <mysche>, I was just as. :D>|
U my word! If you're going to at the matter in that light, we may be here all . I wonder what Nurse would say. She's always been the of critical commentary in such matters.
|Mar-03-13|| ||talisman: happy birthday Geza.|
