  cu8sfan: Player of the day AGAIN??? He was just a couple of weeks ago!
May-03-05  mjk: <cu8sfan> That's what happens when a random number generator gets to make the picks.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: At this pace, he'll be player of the day again in oh.. late June?!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sneaky: Chessgames likes him because his name lends itself so easily to cheap puns.
Premium Chessgames Member
  cu8sfan: How many players in the database? What are the odds of one player getting to be PotD three times over the span of a year?
Mar-02-06  BIDMONFA: Gerald Hertneck


Mar-02-06  MorphyMatt: <AdrianP> Here you go: D Pirrot vs Hertneck, 1989
Sep-18-06  Maatalkko: PotD again!
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: To win back my youth, Gerald, there is nothing I wouldn’t do - except take exercise, get up early, or be a useful member of the community.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: How many times he was already PotD ?
4 times ?
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: <whiteshark> This is sixth time he's player of the day, unless I'm very much mistaken:

1) Dec 16 2003
2) Mar 26 2005
3) May 3 2005
4) Mar 2 2006
5) Sep 18 2006
6) now

Sep-18-07  geraldo8187: might he hold the record?
Sep-18-07  lentil: does this guy have a title?
Sep-18-07  pawnofdoom: <lentil> Yes, thsi guy's a grandmaster. His rating is 2508 right now, but it's been a lot higher before. He's not playing as well and as much as he used to.
Premium Chessgames Member
  DarthStapler: Probably because he hurt his neck
Premium Chessgames Member
  brankat: Happy Birthday GM Hertneck!
Premium Chessgames Member
  GrahamClayton: Hertneck was a last minute substitute for the Cafe Batavia tournament in Amsterdam in February 2011, and made the most of his opportunity, winning the tournament with a score of 4.5/5.

Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: Please can he be player of the day ¿
Sep-18-15  Abdel Irada: <offramp>: Apparently so.

Good thing, too, because it's about time he had his seventh turn as POTD.

Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: "That was a nasty fall. Are you okay?"

"No, I hurt my neck."

Premium Chessgames Member
  eternaloptimist: Happy birthday to GM Hertneck!
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: <Abdel Irada: <offramp>: Apparently so. Good thing, too, because it's about time he had his seventh turn as POTD.>

Back off, buddy! Unless you want a Gerald Hertneck! :-)

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: [rediscovery] Lots of interesting articles there, all in German (though).
Premium Chessgames Member
  Check It Out: <Sneaky: Chessgames likes him because his name lends itself so easily to cheap puns. >

I now find posts by Sneaky so poignant. Its about time GM Hertneck got his 8th turn as POTD.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: I think he finally got it out of his system with Klu #35 of 2016...
