   May-19-05 Zoltan Ribli (replies)
 
platonov: Ribli if the second most professional hungarian GM of all time -- just after Leko. He learned everything, what can be learned in chess, altought never invented anything. The big number of his draws is just because of this professional approach, he did not wanted blood in every ...
 
   May-12-05 Kramnik vs Leko, 2004 (replies)
 
platonov: I don't know if anybody knows how Leko prepares to his matches. He and his father-in-law-coach switches off the computer! Leko learned this from Adorjan... And after some hours of work, they switch back and see if the comp can refute any of their variations. And how the most profs ...
 
   Dec-30-04 Korchnoi vs Carlsen, 2004 (replies)
 
platonov: I met with Magnus almost a year ago, when he was only a strong IM, in Hungary, in the First Saturday tournament. He immediately became my fovourite, with his boyish face and with his grandmaster-level play. Later I saw him taking off his shoes without using his hands against Nigel ...
 
   Dec-23-04 Szen vs Anderssen, 1851 (replies)
 
platonov: What Szen means in english? In hungarian, it means 'Coal'
 
   Dec-21-04 Smyslov vs J H Donner, 1967 (replies)
 
platonov: This is what Donner was famous for. He played endings very well... Nevertheless, he did not scored very well against soviet players.
 
   Dec-17-04 Tal vs D Gedevanishvili, 1970 (replies)
 
platonov: Yes, Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes -- plur. acc.! And i think it was Vergilius who wrote this, not Homeros, cause the Ilias ends with Hector's death... it was Vergilius in the Aeneis who finished this story in latin language. Needless to say, that stupid movie with Brad Pitt has ...

platonov: ő is the character 'o' with hungarian umlaut...
 
   Jul-13-04 B Perenyi vs L Eperjesi, 1974 (replies)
 
platonov: No, Black did not suspect anything because he is a positional player, he always made fatal errors and was absolutely defenceless against this kind of tricks... Bela Perenyi prepared this trick and 12. Nd4 in that day's morning specially against Eperjesi!
 
   Jul-13-04 M Fette vs B Perenyi, 1985 (replies)
 
platonov: I have to mention that he was a ticket-inspector at the Hungarian Railways (as i know), and not a chess-player. Anyway, he had a normal job, and he had not got the whole day to prepare against opponents.
 
   Apr-26-04 W Napier vs NN, 1904 (replies)
 
platonov: NN = Not kNown, i suppose
