Aug-18-08  Jason Frost: No, his name is Imre Balog, he is a young FM from Hungry(Currently Rated 2419)

According to Fide there is another chessplayer named Imre Balog, but I don't think he has any games in the database so it shoulden't be a problem.

  alexmagnus: Isn't Imre spelled Balogh?
Aug-18-08  Jason Frost: Not acording to Fide
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: Hm, probably he uses both spellings :). I remember for sure that there is an FM Imre Balogh rated in 2400s (played in the last European U18 championship), though FIDE doesn't have him :)
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: European U18 team championship I mean:

He beat my third favourite player there, but when they played his name was listed as Balogh...

Winner of First Saturday GM June 2010 (2nd GM norm):, congratulations!
