Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-12-07  Resignation Trap: According to his current information from FIDE, his name is Robert Andrew Hungaski: .

He is the representative from the USA in the 2007 World Junior Championship. He is not well-known in the USA, as he plays primarily in events in Brazil and Argentina. This is probably why his name appears as "Roberto" here.

Aug-26-11  Ghuzultyy: He won a great game in Metropolitan International Tournament-Round 8.
Jul-20-12  achieve: Robert Hungaski, aiming to get his 3rd and final GM norm here at the Science Park Amsterdam Tournament, missed an easy win, as he tells the interviewer, as can be seen from the website (click video from menu).

RH: "Where I played King d2, g5 would have won easily."

I: "Are you sure, have you checked with an engine?"

RH: [looks irritated/bored] "No, I don't have to, my intuition tells me!"

And Robert was right, 36...g5 would have won the endgame, but what he does not mention is that on the previous move, White (Afek) should not have allowed this tempo gain by playing 35 h4 in this position:

Afek played 35. Kh6 here and 36...g5 would have won. But Hungaski played 36...Kd2 and both colors queen. Hard-fought draw!
