|Jun-28-05|| ||aw1988: That sounds about right.|
|Jul-11-05|| ||farrooj: Hug is funnier, why'd you spoil it?|
|Jul-11-05|| ||TheAlchemist: I didn't spoil it. aw1988 asked a legitimate question and I gave him a legitimate answer. Truth is always relative, so... YOU can pronounce it any way YOU want. In fact, I used this trick in my profile as well, so I guess I'm a hypocrite.|
|Jul-11-05|| ||jamesmaskell: To think we are mickey taking froma World Junior Champion! Best join in...|
Just noticed that Hug was beaten to the precious.... (game 44) and was rogered by Rogers (game 95).
Hug fought a Nunn and I got shot for Ribli tickling jokes!
|Jul-11-05|| ||farrooj: naaaaaaaa it's alright... Why are you shouting YOU anyways, sounds as if your mad. What's wrong?|
|Jul-11-05|| ||TheAlchemist: <farrooj> I wasn't shouting, I was articulating it to make it clearer. How could I be mad at you? :-)|
|Jul-11-05|| ||farrooj: I dunno... Where's the Love ?
|Sep-10-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Werner Hug|
|Sep-10-06|| ||oao2102: This guy's name makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside...|
|Sep-10-06|| ||kevin86: I have to show this man some respect since we share the same birthday. He does have a BAD record,however :(|
|Sep-10-07|| ||chessamateur: POTD (Player Of The Day)|
|Aug-10-09|| ||MoonlitKnight: Can anyone tell me why this guy is one of the special guests at the Zürich Jubilee Open along with Kasparov, Karpov, Anand, Kramnik, Topalov, Spassky, Korchnoi, Polgar, Ponomariov and Khalifman? Seems like he's a little out of his league.|

He is one of the top players from Switzerland where the Jubilee is held. Probably a courtesy.

That tournament is for WC. And he was World Junior Champion|
|Aug-25-09|| ||DCP23: <MoonlitKnight>
The idea was to assemble World Champions only. Some of them are FIDE Champions, ok. Polgar was invited because she is "the strongest female player ever". And Hug was a Junior World Champ in the 70s, obviously the closest the Swiss could get to fielding one of their own.
|Aug-25-09|| ||dx9293: I thought Hug might get embarrassed, but he held up pretty well. Minus-two in this field is no small feat.|
|May-31-11|| ||Nietzowitsch: free hugs @ Cologne April 2011: http://player.vimeo.com/video/24157...
Enjoy - nothing to add...|
|Apr-22-12|| ||waustad: I'm guessing that when they write FRG they mean what I think of as BRD, Bundesrepublikdeutschland. On the western side of the pond we always called it East and West Germany, but in Europe I usually saw BRD and DDR.|
|Sep-10-12|| ||waustad: Happy 60th B'day!|
|Feb-23-13|| ||IndigoViolet: He looks like Ray Keene's evil twin.|
|Dec-08-13|| ||Refused: <TheAlchemist: <aw1988> "Hoog">|
Not 100% correct though.
devoicing of the last phoneme in a word is a phenomenom in some languages, including German.
So the proper pronunciation would be <"Hook">.
|Feb-26-14|| ||weary willy: Poor guy ... it's not enough that his record shows that he never fulfilled the potential of being Junior WC, he has to suffer the indignity that over half of his "biography" is about him watching a game that two other people played - "stellar" (?!) or not|
|Feb-26-14|| ||Granny O Doul: Announced the result in a "stellar" fashion? Like Marlon Brando at the end of "Streetcar"?|
|Oct-05-14|| ||Fusilli: Thanks <WCC Editing Project> for editing the bio, removing the offending sentence <Granny O Doul> and <weary willy> were objecting to.|
