  Phony Benoni: Brody was probably around age 60 when he played this game, but you can't tell. After a couple of sham sacrifices he uncorks a real doozy and sets up a mating net.

  Phony Benoni: <Resignation Trap> Thanks! Always nice to fill in the gaps on these players. (Oh, why did I get rid of my Gaiges?)
Jun-10-07  Whitehat1963: Wonder if he's a sheriff in Amity. Anyone know? <Whiteshark>, have you had any dealings with Brody?
Jun-11-07  Whitehat1963: I can do anything; I'm the chief of police.

  whiteshark: After World War I, he became a Romanian citizen as a result of the post-war border changes in 1920.


Jan-06-14  Karpova: Dr. Nikolaus Brody from Kolozsvar published an article on the <W. Paulsen> variation of the Sicilian Defense (3...a6 followed by ...Qc7), as he saw Black facing problems in the Ruy Lopez and the QGD. The <W. Paulsen> variation had been a rare sight for decennia and wasn't overly analysed yet. Dr. Brody tested the Sicilian in the International Correspondence tournament of the Budapest 'Alkotmany' (1912-1914, 20 participants) and the Austro-Hungarian Championship 1913 in Budapest - see Rudolf Spielmann - in 4 games each, with a score of +4 -0 =4. He gives three games which have been submitted.

The 12 opening moves from 7 (Correspondence) tournament games he played during the last two years:
