|Feb-29-04|| ||ConLaMismaMano: This is my favorite player, has beaten players such as Morozevich, Shirov, Gulko, Geller, Jiangchuan (China's top player), Granda Zuñiga, Topalov, Timman, Sutovsky, Short, Karjakin, etc. |
|Feb-29-04|| ||PizzatheHut: <ConLaMismaMano> I've never heard of him. Could you explain why he's your favorite player? |
|Mar-01-04|| ||ConLaMismaMano: First because he's from Argentina, where I was born, second because he's a "normal" 2500s GM but there days in which he can beat anyone, check out his games against Topalov, Shirov and Morozevich. And finally and most importantly because i like very much his playing style. |
|Mar-01-04|| ||meloncio: Now he lives in Sevilla (Spain), my hometown, where sometimes I meet him. Last time I saw him, just before Christmas, he had a very long beard as a biblical patriarch. |
|Mar-28-04|| ||ruylopez900: An interesting fellow. Shame no one's commented on his 24 hours in the spotlite as Player of the Day.... |
|Jul-23-04|| ||meloncio: No news from Christmas time about him. |
|Jul-23-04|| ||islero: <meloncio> I met Campora yesterday http://www.fsajedrez.com/torneos/20... (25' games)
no biblical patriarch beard though. |
|Dec-26-04|| ||Benzol: Daniel Hugo Campora
Born 30th June 1957 in San Nicolas
He was awarded the IM title in 1982.
|Jun-30-06|| ||chessgames.com: We just did something unprecedented: we switched the player of the day to Daniel Campora. The reason we did this is that we are testing out new POTD system.|
From this point forward, the Player of the Day will no longer be randomly selected, but instead will be picked from a list which mostly coincides with player's birthdays, and sometimes relevant holidays. We think this will be much more fair and interesting than the random system.
|Jun-30-06|| ||Confuse: <chessgames.com> i thought u already did that what with all the coincidences already! thats cool though, thanks for your hard work : )|

I do not agree. Campora's elo has risen the past few years. According to the FIDE website, Camporas' elo is now 2532.
