|Jun-10-08|| ||Karpova: Hruby's historical Elo was 2480.|
|Jul-09-08|| ||whiteshark: Bio: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vincen...
|Jul-09-08|| ||whiteshark: <Trieste> flourished as part of Austria, from 1382 (the Austro-Hungarian Empire from 1867) until 1918.|
Thus he has been <Austrian <!>>
|Feb-19-11|| ||markwell: What nonsense for his bio to state that he was born in the Czech Republic. One is entitled to one's opinion, not one's own facts.|
|Feb-21-11|| ||Benzol: I thought it said he was born in a part of Bohemia that is now in the Czech Republic?|
Although this bio wasn't written by me I feel a great deal of sympathy for the writer. With all the shifting of boundaries, wars and political realignments in Europe over the last few centuries it can sometimes be very difficult assigning a nationality to a player.
|Sep-15-12|| ||Karpova: Hruby won a tournament at Trieste in 1887 ahead of A. Velcich, C. Vendlenner and Dr. J. Martinolich. Overall, 17 players participated. |
From page 17 of the July issue of the 1887 'Wiener Schachzeitung'
|Apr-07-16|| ||zanzibar: <Englisch v Hruby.óWe learn from the Berlin " Sonntags Blatt," that a match has been played between these two players, the result being that Here Hruby won, with a score of 3 to 1 and one game drawn.>|
CPC v6 (24 May 1882) p243/256
|Jun-19-16|| ||dernier loup de T: I love this player: not so many in his time used often the queen's gambit for opening, and it seems to me he did it a little with the spirit of Zuckertort rather than of Burn for instance (even of course I
respect the positional and defensive talent of Burn too)...|
|Sep-09-16|| ||dark.horse: <Benzol> right. He was born and died in Austria, but now both places are in different countries, neither of which is Austria.|
|Sep-09-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: This was the player that Scoobee Doo described as Hruby Hruby Roo.|
|Sep-09-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: He beat Chigorin and Blackburne, so he could play.|
