[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.

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.|

In 1963/64, Gereben co-won at the 6th edition of the traditional Reggio Emilia tournament, alongside with Rudolf Teschner (best-on tie-break), Gedeon Barcza, and Janos Flesch.
Gereben was clear first at the Hoogovens Beverwijk - B tournament in 1962, and also won the so-called Masters A at the great Monte Carlo tournament in 1967 (in fact, this was another B-group), Bobby Fischer won the head tournament above Smyslov, Geller, and Larsen.
