|Mar-26-05|| ||cu8sfan: Our player of the day has his own web page: http://www.ghertneck.de. Lots of interesting articles there but all of them are in German. |
|Mar-26-05|| ||WTHarvey: Here are the critical positions from some of Gerald's games not shown here: http://www.wtharvey.com/hert.html |
|May-03-05|| ||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.|
|May-03-05|| ||WannaBe: At this pace, he'll be player of the day again in oh.. late June?!|
|May-03-05|| ||Sneaky: Chessgames likes him because his name lends itself so easily to cheap puns.|
|Mar-02-06|| ||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!|
|Jul-15-07|| ||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.|
|Sep-18-07|| ||whiteshark: How many times he was already PotD ?
4 times ?
|Sep-18-07|| ||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
|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.|
|Aug-22-08|| ||DarthStapler: Probably because he hurt his neck|
|Sep-18-08|| ||brankat: Happy Birthday GM Hertneck!|
|Feb-21-12|| ||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.|
|May-08-13|| ||offramp: Please can he be player of the day ¿|
