[what is this?]

Erno Gereben (his name was Ernest Gruenfeld until 1935 but he is not to be confused with the well-known Austrian master Ernst Gruenfeld) was born in Sopron, Hungary in 1907. He was awarded the IM title in 1950 and emigrated to Switzerland in 1956. His best tournament result was 2nd= with Albert Becker after Laszlo Szabo at Tatatovaros in 1935. In Olympiads he played for Hungary in 1954 and for Switzerland in 1970, 1972 and 1974.

  Benzol: He is a different player from Ernst Gruenfeld isn't he?
Jun-18-06  WMD: Yes, he is. Or, rather, he was.

  keypusher: <WMD>! Nice to see you again.
Jun-18-06  WMD: Thank you, my fan.
Jun-18-06  ughaibu: Fan singular? I feel snubbed.
Jun-18-06  WMD: Ditto.
Jun-18-06  mack: WMD me old mucker, where have you been? Travelling to third world countries in an attempt to 'find yourself' or something?
Jun-18-06  WMD: Frequenting various right-wing websites. I'm not sure when my posting ban here was lifted.
Jun-18-06  Karpova: WMD: <I'm not sure when my posting ban here was lifted.>

Why did you get banned?
I noticed your absence but didn't know you were banned.

Jun-18-06  WMD: Can't exactly recall the offending remark but it had something to do with John Donaldson, Ray Keene and the subject of plagiarism. So it goes.
Jun-18-06  Karpova: So you took on the mighty <Ray Kenne>? Better stick with LMAJ next time ;-)
