|Nov-29-05|| ||AdrianP: Excellent result for this young Hungarian GM, taking Karjakin out in the tie-breaks. Here's his FIDE rating card. I had never heard of him prior to this tournament.|
|Dec-09-05|| ||lopium: Can we have his biography? What a strange thing that we only have a 2400 rating here, for a GM title.|

|Dec-09-13|| ||perfidious: <johnnyb3: Is he any relation to the Balogh associated with one of my favorite "junk" openings e4 d6 d4 f5?>|
That honour goes to Janos Balogh instead.
|Dec-10-13|| ||johnnyb3: Oh, I knew it wasn't the same guy, I just wondered if it was a grandson or something.|
|Dec-10-13|| ||perfidious: No idea, but the surname is not uncommon-used to know Alex Balogh when I haunted Montreal blitz events in the 1990s.|
|Dec-10-13|| ||Annie K.: <the surname is not uncommon>|
Correct. :) It's an archaic Hungarian word for 'left-handed'.
It doesn't carry the negative connotations of the English 'sinister' though.
|Dec-10-13|| ||perfidious: <Annie K.>: Some twenty years ago, I was working for IBM in Vermont and had a co-worker who equated left-handedness with being sinister. Not that she was the brightest person in creation, but this was mind-blowing to me.|
|Dec-10-13|| ||Annie K.: <perfidious> this sort of unthinking acceptance of linguistic associations is the mark of monolingualism. :\|
|Aug-14-14|| ||cro777: At the just finished Tromso Olympiad, GM Csaba Balogh (2637) won two silver medals, team (Hungary) and individual on board 2.|
He scored 7/9 with a performance rating of 2839.
|Aug-14-14|| ||Natalia Pogonina: Grats to Csaba on his great performance at the Chess Olympiad! :)|
|Aug-14-14|| ||Method B: It was a controversial decision to select him playing board 2 in front of Richard Rapport Zoltan Almasi and even Judit Polgar but it certainly paid great dividends.|
Great performance! Bravo Csaba.
|Aug-14-14|| ||cro777: The happy Hungarian team with the silver medals.
|Aug-15-14|| ||cro777: The 2014 Chess Olympiad - The medalists on Board 2

|Mar-10-15|| ||Nina Myers: The sexiest guy ever. Csaba is funny and hunky. All the girls love Csaba because he's a chick magnet. He's a flirt but he knows how to treat a girl right. He is amazing and smart.|
