Oct-20-11  TheVillageIdiot: Is this dude related to Paul Erdos the Mathematician??
Sep-02-12  waustad: Happy B'day!
Sep-02-13  sambo: <TheVillageIdiot: Is this dude related to Paul Erdos the Mathematician??> Yes, this was also the first thought that came to my mind.

<'Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening' by Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.>

Erdős means 'forest owner' (/ Forester) in Hungarian. :)

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <Annie K.> Is that a common name? Asking because of Paul Erdos:

Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: It's not very uncommon. Think Forster/Forrester as English names. I wouldn't assume they have to be related.

BTW, audio pronunciation is up! :)

  Penguincw: (this was in July 2018)

Erdos won the Hungarian Rapid Championship with a score of 10/13, tied for first with top seed Almasi.

He beat Almasi with black in their Round 5 matchup to become the only one still perfect after 5 rounds.
