|Jan-03-03|| ||Honza Cervenka: Chessgames.com, the name of this player is not Laszlo Barcza, but Laszlo Barczay. |
|Jan-03-03|| ||PVS: So they tricked me! |
|Jan-03-03|| ||GregorMendel: I'd always saw it as "Barcza" - where'd you hear that, Honza? |
|Jan-03-03|| ||AgentRgent: There was a player named Barcza but his name was Gedeon. This is Laszlo Barczay (http://www.fide.com/ratings/card.ph...). |
|Jan-03-03|| ||GregorMendel: You're right, I was thinking of Gedeon Barcza. Thanks, Agent. |
|Feb-21-11|| ||BIDMONFA: Laszlo Barczay|
|Feb-21-11|| ||HeMateMe: Chess Rule No. 1: You have to have a crazy, unspellable name, if you want to have an opening variation named after you.|
|Feb-21-11|| ||haydn20: I imagine his name is perfectly straightforward for a Hungarian. Honfi-Barczay 1977 has a pretty combo at the end.|
|Feb-21-11|| ||Maatalkko: Great picture. He looks ticked.|
