|Apr-20-06|| ||sitzkrieg: Very cool!
Good tournament also, i very much like what they are doing for chess in turkey!
|Jul-08-06|| ||Dozy: Thanks for the link, DeepBlade. I passed it on via our local (Australian) chess forum.|
|Jul-08-06|| ||Resignation Trap: What? No portrait of Portisch on www.chessgames.com ??|
|Jul-16-06|| ||chancho: Here's one from 2005. (Gotta scroll down a little to see the pic.|
|Aug-31-06|| ||Hinger: I read that no chess player studied or worked harder at chess than Lajos Portich. Next was Bobby Fischer.|
|Oct-23-06|| ||WTHarvey: Here are some critical positions from his games: http://www.wtharvey.com/port.html|

Thanks for all the excitement.
And good luck at Gausdal Classics!
|Apr-04-07|| ||Resignation Trap: Best wishes GM Portisch on your 70th birthday! And many more to come!|
|Apr-04-07|| ||technical draw: It seems to me that Portisch has been around forever. He has played every top player of the last 50 years.|
|Apr-20-07|| ||Quintiliano: Right on, GM Portisch!!|
|Apr-23-07|| ||Maatalkko: Portisch is way better than 2512 at his best.|
|Apr-26-07|| ||stanleys: He did very well at Gausdal Classic - shared second place with Rozentalis and Krasenkov with 5,5 from 9.|
Congratulations Mr Portisch!
|May-15-07|| ||Eggman: Some unusual factual errors in Kasparov's new <"Revolution In the 70s"> tome, such as referring to 8-time candidate Portisch as a 5-time candidate.|
|Sep-26-07|| ||parisattack: Portisch's play never 'spoke to me' but he certainly was a super-super GM. I interviewed him for the college newspaper when he played in Denver, 1972. It was tough getting much out of him; his answers whilst polite were short, to-the-point. When I asked him the difference between his play and Fischer's he said, "We are both tacticians, he plays 1. e4 and I play 1. d4; that's all." After the simul we treated him to a night at the then fashionable Playboy Club where I thought he might loosen up a bit - but not.|
|Oct-24-07|| ||Manuel G. Vergara: Me and Mr. Lajos had a 3 blitz games a while ago over the site flyordie. Of course i have'nt had the chance to equalize, he is legendary.|
|Nov-05-07|| ||parisattack: <he is legendary.> Indeed, he is. That would make a great memory for a chess player - blitz games with a Super-GM. I think someone pulled out a pocket set when we went to the Playboy Club but I was too busy watching the bunnies to remember much... :)|
|May-25-08|| ||Billy Vaughan: Hey, he and I share a birthday!|
|May-26-08|| ||RookFile: Portisch played a lot of interesting games.|
|Feb-05-09|| ||M.D. Wilson: A very solid player and very dangerous at his best. Portisch worked very hard at chess and he has results to show for it. His approach to 1. d4 is instructive, but not mind-blowing.|

Agree. I think Gligoric was the most 'classical' 1. d4 player of the post-war era. the touchstone for his games is that the center is everything.
|Mar-22-09|| ||GrahamClayton: Portisch holds the record for the most victories by one player in the history of the Chess Olympiads, with 121 victories in 20 Olympiads.|
|Apr-04-09|| ||wordfunph: From 1956 to 2000, Lajos Portisch has played in 20 chess olympiads, more than anyone else. Long live the celebrant...Happy Birthday GM Lajos Portisch!!|
|Apr-04-09|| ||talisman: happy birthday lajos.the man is in all the books.|
