|Sep-08-11|| ||wordfunph: $8 plus $3 shipping for Charousek's Games of Chess (published in 1989) by Philip Sergeant..|
<Charousek died of tuberculosis at the early age of 26 before his full powers had been realized. Evidence of his bold, incisive play has been preserved in this book with over 140 of his finest games.>
|Sep-08-11|| ||TheFocus: <wordfunph> Thanks for the tip. I went and found another book I was looking for. I hope I win it.|
May even bid on the Charousek book.
|Sep-22-11|| ||Cemoblanca: Rudolf Rezso "Magic Mate[s]" Charousek! 1 of my favorite players of all time! RIP!|
|Oct-26-11|| ||Nosnibor: I have comments concerning two games.
Game 25 This was not a formal march game between Charousek and Makovetz which is stated by jessicafischerqueen in her wonderful picture/music posts of Charousek,but a game whereby Charousek gave odds of a Queens Knight to Makovetz. You will note that there is no move by White of this piece.Souce:Chess-players Compendium by William Cook.
Game 149 between Charousek and Maroczy was not played in Budapest but at Nagy Teteny on New Years Eve 1897.Source:Dreindhart Schackpartien by Maroczy.
|Oct-26-11|| ||Nosnibor: Apologies! My last post should have read games21 and 120|
|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!|
|Sep-19-12|| ||Nosnibor: Here is a game not in the database played 115 years ago by one of the supreme attacking players of all time and certainly one of my favourite players.White:R Charousek Black:J Lehner,Budapest,1897.Evans Gambit Declined.1e4 e5 2Nf3 Nc6 3Bc4 Bc5 4b4 Bb6 5a4 a5 6b5 Nd4 7c3 Nxf3+ 8Qxf3 Qe7 90-0 d6 10d3 h6 11Na3 Nf6 12Bb3 Bg4 13Qg3 g5 14Nc4 Ba7 15Ne3 Bd7 16Rb1 Nh5 17Qf3 Nf4 18Nd5 Qd8 19b6 Bxb6 20Nxb6 g4 21Qd1 gxf3 22Ba3 Qf6 23Bc4 and wins 1-0|
|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.|
