"GM Florin Gheorghiu studierte Sprachwissenschaften, wurde Schachprofi und später auch Redakteur der führenden rumänischen Schachzeitschrift. Er gilt als Positionsspieler, der seine Partien sehr solide anlegt und dadurch nur schwer zu schlagen ist. Bei Turnieren wurde er häufig "Remiskönig". In seinen Glanzpartien loderte jedoch das feurige Temperament seiner südlichen Heimat."
|Apr-03-09|| ||BIDMONFA: Florin Gheorghiu|
|Apr-06-09|| ||wordfunph: GM Florin Gheorghiu....the guy who beat Bobby Fischer during the Havana Olympiad, Happy Birthday GM Gheorghiu!!!|
|Jul-03-09|| ||Knight13: This guy has a good record of drawing Karpov during Mr. K's prime, too.|
|Nov-11-09|| ||fred lennox: gheorghlu is not as well known as Ljubojevic and Andersson. In the mid to late 70's these three masters tore down the Maroczy Bind. That is, black playing against the Bind is not the disadvantage it was thought to be. Renato Naranja vs Gheorghiu, 1974. At this time cramp positions were being reevaluated for counter attacks. Or it seems to be.|
|Nov-11-09|| ||Shams: <fred lennox> that's a fine game, but it's not a Maroczy Bind game. I was hoping to see a nice takedown of the Bind.|
|Nov-12-09|| ||fred lennox: <shams> whoops! the few games i have that show this by Gheorghliu are not on this site. I hope this game from the Old Horse will satisfy you. M Lanzani vs Smyslov, 1988|
|Nov-12-09|| ||fred lennox: The thing about the maroczy bind is that it isn't the rosy picture for white as once thought. Not because things are found easier for black, no the situation for black is not easy. It's been found that things aren't so easy for white, making for an interesting formation. Not all players had concur to the reputable bind. Nimzowitch, Simagin, Larson, and Gurgenidze played against it with success. It wasn't until the seventies, i believe, that this attitude was more broadly accepted. Though the Bind is a formidable weapon, don't mean to treat is lightly.|
|Dec-19-09|| ||jerseybob: Fred Lennox: Just played over Lanzani-Smyslov, and while it's a fine game by black, white's premature e5 takes it out of Maroczy Bind territory, at least for me. When I think of the Bind, I think of white pawns on e4/c4, and black maneuvering behind the lines, looking for pawn breaks. The Hedgehog can grow out of that.|

|Apr-06-10|| ||chrisowen: Never one to guild the lily Florin does angle for interesting signs with nifty play. Grapple the pawn power his curency and trademark with skilled hands. Mock him not, fun or otherwise nor treat with contempt. It was this game <wordfunph> refers against Fischer that really stood out.|
Gheorghiu vs Fischer, 1966
|Apr-08-10|| ||Domdaniel: Lily the Pink invented something, but not orthoepy. To gild is to cover in gold. Pink is a popstar, a colour worn by Barbara Cartland, a flesh wound. A guild is a medieval trade union, skilled hands their trademark.|
It adds up.
|Apr-08-10|| ||Domdaniel: Apart from Gheorghiu, I like the Gothic Florins of the 1870s. Speaking numismatically.|
|Nov-29-10|| ||I play the Fred: William Winter, re: Gheorghiu at Lugano, 1990:
<Gheorghiu still has a total aversion to sitting down; he has the air of a Mediterranean barber who has decided there must be more to life than haircuts.>
|Mar-12-11|| ||perfidious: For all the references to Gheorghiu's win against Fischer, he-to nobody's surprise, I'm sure-proposed a draw during that game, though already in a clearly better position after Fischer's weak opening play.|
<Fred> I assume you meant Edward Winter, as William Winter has long since died.
|Apr-20-11|| ||technical draw: I wonder if they called him "Mr. Nine Times" in Rumania?|
|Feb-16-12|| ||waustad: In the 70s I ran into Walter Tevis in a local watering hole and wound up playing blitz with him in his garage until dawn. On the walls he had 2 huge pictures of himself with celebs. I recognized Florin Gheorghiu immediately but needed to be told who David Bowie was. Pop culture clues still trip me up doing crosswords. Oh well.|
|Feb-16-12|| ||brankat: <waustad> <..but needed to be told who David Bowie was. Pop culture clues still trip me up doing crosswords.>|
With me it's the other way around :-) Occasionally. So, out of ignorance and curiosity: Who is Walter Tevis? Thank You.
|Feb-16-12|| ||waustad: He wrote "The Hustler", "The Man Who Fell to Earth" (the reason for the Bowie picture), "Queen's Gambit", ... At that time he was a professor at Ohio University and I was a grad school dropout.|
|Feb-16-12|| ||waustad: Speaking of the Romanian Championship, that's what got me to this page in the first place. It is on right now and I hadn't heard of anybody playing. Nisi was at Aeroflot instead.|
|Feb-16-12|| ||brankat: Thank You <waustad>. |
In regards to the Romanian championship: <It is on right now and I hadn't heard of anybody playing.>
If it is on, then somebody must be playing :-)
|Apr-06-12|| ||wordfunph: GM Florin Gheorghiu won the Philippine (Manila) Open in 1970 with 11/11, beating Bobby Fischer's record of 10.5/11 a year earlier.|
happy birthday, GM Gheorghiu!
|Dec-12-12|| ||waustad: He's been active recently. Maybe someday they'll choose him as an "Old Hand" to play the Snowdrops.|
|Apr-06-13|| ||virginmind: He placed 14th at the Lausanne Young Masters Open in sept. 2008.
|Apr-06-13|| ||waustad: One more year as a sexigenarian!|
