|Jun-29-06|| ||beatles fan: My Uncle Played this guy! He used to work at the UFT restocking lab equiptment. Didn't speak a lot of english, but he was a killer player. Living in post WWII Hungary, the place was flat, and he made his first chess set from stale bread.|
|Oct-06-07|| ||stanleys: Apparently Geza Fuster has been a victim of a brilliant tactical shot(I saw it in many Russian books,but couldn't find the whole game)|

|Aug-25-08|| ||myschkin: . . .
aka <Géza Füster>
Füster was a fixture at the YMCA Chess Club and later the Toronto Chess Club. A lover of speed chess, very generous with advice and encouragement to young players, and beloved for his aphorisms. When an opponent played a dubious move he would always say: "When a player is weak I say: 'Will you come again to play tomorrow?'".
|Aug-25-08|| ||RookFile: In Wade and OConnell's book on Fischer, Fuster is described as "luckless". He had a winning game against Fischer, but misplayed it, and Fischer came back to win:|
G Fuster vs Fischer, 1958
|Jul-26-10|| ||GrahamClayton: I read an interesting article about Fuster's participation in the 1958 Interzonal.|
The Toronto City Council was approached to see if they could provide the $1,000 required for Fuster's travel and accommodation. When the Council refused, Joseph Cornish started an appeal with $25.
Obviously the $1,000 was found, but it shows what an "amateur" like Fuster had to do in order to take part.
|Aug-03-11|| ||reztap: Fuster played third board in the Cleveland-Toronto match in the mid seventies. He lost to James Schroeder,a Cleveland player of Master strength, on the white side of a QGD. Milan Vukcevich was Cleveland's 1st brd.He also was a winner. Cleveland won the A team match but the B team did not. I played 8th on the A team and won because my opponent made an unsound sacrifice.|
|Aug-03-11|| ||reztap: To amend my previous kibitz Vukcevich's opponent was Vranesic He won on the black side of a sicillian. I played against a French Defense|
|Apr-08-13|| ||Llawdogg: Stanley, it's too bad that we don't have the entire game of Fuster vs Balogh, 1964.|
|Apr-08-13|| ||Llawdogg: Actually, I think it's Geza Fuster vs Janos Balogh, 1945, Budapest, Hungary, from the Hungarian Championship. This 23 move miniature is widely available on the internet at places like chess.com and chesstempo.com among others. Just do a quick google search.|
|Apr-25-13|| ||wordfunph: "I'm always in time trouble. But you can't change the man. A long time ago
Maroczy told me I could be one of the best players in the world if not for time trouble. Yuri Averbakh said I'm always looking for the best move. That's not good. I should just find a good move and play it - but I can't."|
