|Nov-24-11|| ||Sho: Nosnibor, better would be to use the game identification number, the seven-digit number at the end of the URL. |
If new games are added, "game 120" would become a different game.
|Jan-12-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: What a great Chess player, man!
God bless, GM Charousek!
|Jan-12-12|| ||iking: <Atking: You did a remarquable work on Charousek <Jessica> - Beautifull as your avatar -. I guess you should put all the moves until the end (It seems you stopped at Kd6) in the game Charousek-Horiato Caro (Berlin Tournament) for a proper understanding. Really beautiful.
<ughaibu: I dont understand the amount of praise Charousek gets, unless it's due to him dying relatively young. Looking at what he actually achieved, he wasn't that great.> If you can't appreciate the games at their real value (Many are subtle and quite complicated) I suggest to have a look on what strong players (among them Nigel Short) said about Charousek in the last <youtube> that Jessica has realized for us.
|Jan-12-12|| ||Morten: In terms of results and statisctics Charousek may not count for much in comparison with Lasker, Capablanca, Alekhine etc. But he is a player who sparks the imagination, because he clearly had THE GIFT and you can't help wonder what might have been had he been allowed to continue.|
|Aug-12-12|| ||Conrad93: This guy is definitely a great attacking player.
He should be in the same league as Morphy or Capablanca.
Every move he makes is designed for attack.
Kind of reminds me of a pit bull.
|Sep-19-12|| ||brankat: R.I.P. master Charousek.|
|Sep-19-12|| ||Llawdogg: Happy Birthday!|

|Feb-07-13|| ||IndigoViolet: <Here is a game not in the database...>|
Charousek vs Lehner, 1897
That took 30 seconds to find. What's wrong with people?
The database of Charousek's games in <Quarterly for Chess History, Spring 1/1999> lists 271 games (including fragments). Oh boy...
|Sep-19-13|| ||Nosnibor: 140 years ago today was born a chess genius.R.I.P. Master Charousek!|
|Oct-24-14|| ||ljfyffe: Jointly, with Maroczy, won first at the Hungarian
individual Correspondence Chess Tournament held from 1893 to 1897, organized by the
Budapest Chess Review.
|Feb-20-15|| ||zanzibar: <The Literary Digest, Volume 13 (1896) p862> gives his dob at Sept 10 (or 20), 1873:|
<Rudolph Charousek, who suddenly leaped to the front among Chess-players, was born at Prague, Bohemia on Sept 10, 1873, and is, therefore, 23 years old. When 5 years old his parents emigrated to Hungary, and he learned Chess at college at Kaschen in 1891. [...]>
A late starter, early bloomer.
|Feb-20-15|| ||zanzibar: <Lasker's Chess Magazine>, Aug 1905, also gives dob as Sept 10, 1873 for <Charousek>. |
It also adds this:
<Only seven years elapsed from learning the moves to- the end of his career, and he was under 27 when he played his last game.>
Could a biographer please look into the matter a little more?
(The <Literary Digest> probably copied from Lasker)
|Feb-20-15|| ||zanzibar: <Phony> I read your post inquiring about additional Charousek games:|
Rudolf Rezso Charousek (kibitz #71)
It doesn't seem that anybody on <CG> answered your question (if they did I missed it).
Did you ever find out yourself?
|Feb-20-15|| ||zanzibar: Spraggett has a rather nice article on Charousek here:|
|Feb-20-15|| ||zanzibar: Our own <JFQ> has an entire page on him here:|
|Feb-20-15|| ||Phony Benoni: <zanzibar> I wasn't actively actively searching for Charousek games, just putting forth a piece of information. But to answer your question, I don't recall any replies.|
|Feb-21-15|| ||zanzibar: <Phony> thanks for the update. Too bad there's no follow-up on your lead.|
|May-18-15|| ||offramp: There is a book about him called "Chess Comet Charousek" by Victor A. Charuchin. |
The title is actually a pun. There was a famous comet named Kahoutek.
|May-18-15|| ||Jim Bartle: Unfortunately Kohoutek was a giant fizzle as a public spectacle.|
|Aug-15-15|| ||offramp: Rezso peace.|
|Apr-18-16|| ||TheFocus: Rest in peace, Rudolph Charousek.|
|Sep-19-16|| ||TheFocus: Happy birthday, Rudolf Charousek.|
