Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-26-07  engmaster: Gábor Kállai born 1959 is a Hungarian chess player and strong theorectical Grandmaster. His Elo rating in January 2006 was 2504.

He was Zoltan Ribli's second in Ribli's WC cadidate run in the early 80's.

Gabor's best book is Basic Chess openings E4. Even a decade later many of the key lines remain sound and the strategies remain similar. Still a very useful primer for key E4 lines

Sep-20-08  realbrob: I read that book, it was very interesting indeed.. Thx for the bio I was wondering how old Kallai was.

Never seen a player with so many draws under "Notable Games". They must be popular.
