  GrahamClayton: Why did Adojan play under the name Jocha in his youth?
Jun-11-10
Premium Chessgames Member
  wwall: He was born Andras Jocha in 1950 and changed his name to Andras Adorjan around 1970. He took his new name after Andras Adorjan, an internationally acclaimed concert flutist from Hungary, born in 1944.

  wordfunph: 1994 Alushta: According to GM Mikhail Golubev, before the start of the tournament, GM Andras Adorjan proposed to play all his games with black. After some reflection, the other participants refused to support the idea. In the end, all three non-drawn games involving Adorjan were won by black.

Mar-31-12  King Death: Thanks for providing us with an entertaining writing style instead of dry technical reading. There's enough of that out there and a change is always good.

Happy Birthday!
