  GreenCastle: I don't know who the Lucena Position is named after, but it's not this guy.
Oct-11-07  pawnofdoom: The Lucena position was named after some Spanish guy named Luis Ramirez de Lucena (c. 1465 – c.1530). It's a misnomer, because Lucena didn't actually write a book or anything on it, some other guy named Alessandro Salvio did. Credit: Wikipedia
Oct-11-07  capablancakarpov: <pawnofdoom> False, Wikipedia is incorrect. Lucena ( not Luis or Ramirez, simply Lucena ) wrote the first ever modern chess book " Repeticion de amores y del Arte del Ajedrez " in 1497, and gave there a lot of modern openings for the first time, so is a shame that there isnīt any opening named after him, only a position ( for example, Damiano copied almost Lucenaīs entire book, and he has one opening named after him, the Damiano Defense, which he also copied from Lucenaīs book).

PS: Itīs noteworthy that some people believe that actually the first chess modern book was wroten in 1495 in Valenciá, a Spanish local language, by a man named Francesc Vicent, but there arenīt any copies remaining. Supporters of this theory say that Lucena copied Vicentīs book and translated it to Spanish.

Jul-12-08  Karpova: Lincoln Lucena tried to become president of FIDE in 1986 (Campomanes won without any opposition).

Here is an excellent and really hilarious article by Edward Winter on the campaign:

"Comic Relief"

It's really worth reading!

Dec-03-18  Marcelo Bruno: <GreenCastle>: the Lucena Position is named after the 15th century author, not after Lincoln Lucena (the first was Valencian, the other is Brazilian).
