  WannaBe: Definitely not a goldfish, them (Bluefin) Tuna can get up max. length: 4.6 m (15 ft), weight: 684 kg (1,508 lb)

That's the freakin weight of a small hybrid car!

  HeMateMe: What's luft Got To Do With It?
Aug-07-15  bien pensant: A private tuncer, I say.

  whiteshark: <MissScarlett>, <lost in space> I see great minds think alike.

Now I am getting hungry...

  offramp: On board a shipping vessel a tuncer's job is to convince caught fish that they are being taken somewhere pleasant. Tuncing is a skill normally passed from father to son.

  cro777: In Turkish, Tuna means "Danube river" and Tuncer means "man of bronze".

This is Statue of Bronze Man in Danube Park

  alexmagnus: < In Turkish, Tuna means "Danube river" and Tuncer means "man of bronze".>

Why is the Danube named so differently in different languages?

Danube in English
Tuna in Turkish
Donau in German
Dunay in Russian
Dunav in Bulgarian
Danav in Bretonian
Tanay in Chuvash
Dounabis in Greek
Danubio in Spanish and Italian
Danubo in Esperanto
Duna in Hungarian

Probably only Moscow has even more language-dependent names :D

  offramp: The word for "German" is very different in each of the European languages. Perhaps someone more erudite could make a list?

cro, you seem to know more about everyone in chess than anyone on this site. It's remarkable.

Aug-08-15  waustad: If "Tuna" is the Danube, it sounds like Donau and a lot like what I've heard on down the way. Where I lived nearby it was in German.
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: <sonia91> That is FANTASTIC. Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

The Polish word is given as Niemcy, and that must be related to the name of Aron Nimzowitsch.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Catfriend: <offramp> Similarly, in Russian, the word for German people (as opposed to Germany itself) is <Nemtzy>.
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: The Spanish word, and Italian, for German is <tedesco>; that is related to "Deutsche".

It's odd for the adjective to be so different from the noun.

I agree. <Cro777> is brilliant and I urge all users to add him to your favourites list. I thought his username was based on that of one of my Masonic heroes, Aleister Crowley, who wrote an excellent book called <"777">. But <cro777> explains his username on his own page.

  morfishine: <offramp> I offer my complete endorsement for this comment: <<<Cro777>> is brilliant and I urge all users to add him to your favourites list>. He is not only brilliant, but completely without bias, which is to me, much appreciative. <cro777> is open and engaging with players of all strength and never has a sour word for anyone. <cro777> is one of my favorite posters


Aug-08-15  john barleycorn: <<morfishine> & <offramp>> totally agree. <cro777> is a pleasant person and giving excellent analysis. A mix hard to find.
Aug-08-15  Fiona Macleod: CG I understand had deleted some of <cro777's> posts, however.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Most unfortunate, for <cro777> is a worthy contributor here.
Aug-15-15  john barleycorn: <Fiona Macleod> welcome to <CG> the best managed chess site in the world.

  cro777: At the just finished Turkish Chess Superleague, Tuna Tuncer won individual gold on board 7 (Under 16 players).

LR: FM Volkan Sevgi (silver), Tuna Tuncer (gold), Cem Kaan Gökerkan (bronze)

Tuna's team, with Wesley So on board 1, took silver.

Aug-15-15  Barococo Prosopoeia: 30 pieces, I presume?
Oct-13-17  MadFaqirOfSwat: It has been a while since we've heard something about this delightfully named boy.
