|Oct-20-04|| ||fasting: Who is this Bela Toth?? is this person a woman or a man? |
|Oct-20-04|| ||fgh: No idea, but it sounds more like a woman name. |
|Oct-20-04|| ||chessgames.com: I couldn't find much online but I found this brief mention <1943.04.19 Toth b. Italian IM 1974.> http://www.logicalchess.com/info/hi...|
Due to the timespan, I would suspect that the first 2 or 3 games belong to a different Bela Thoth.
|Oct-20-04|| ||Benzol: Maybe <ray keene> could shed more light on this player as he played against him/her in 1979. |
|Oct-21-04|| ||clapperrail: Bela Toth is a man. He played in the Haifa Olympiad in 1976. He won a game against L Kavalek who was playing for the USA team. |
|Oct-21-04|| ||Honza Cervenka: Early games in this file could be played by Bora Tot |
|Oct-26-04|| ||fasting: Guess you are right Honza - but this Bora Tot isn't bad at all, draws against Spassky, Korchnoi and Aljechin! |
|Oct-26-04|| ||ray keene: male-hungarian-played for italy i seem to recall-i think i played him twice haifa ol 1976 rome 1979-int master? about 60 now i guess |
|Oct-26-04|| ||ray keene: the man i played cannot have been active in 1938!! |
|Oct-26-04|| ||fasting: yes we are talking of two different Tots - but as Honza says, check out Bora Tot |
|Oct-26-04|| ||fasting: but nice to hear first-hand information on the subject - thnx Keene |
|Oct-31-04|| ||Honza Cervenka: <fasting> Bora Tot really was not bad but those draws against Korchnoi and Spassky are games of this player. Games in both files are a little bit mixed up.|
By the way, there is a picture of Bela Toth on http://www.chesslive.de/scripts/ser...
|Nov-08-04|| ||fasting: wow what a... photo... guess its at least 25 years old
And what a mess with Bela n' Bora. Must admit I'm still slightly confused about them both - All though nice done by Bela then! He also beats Timman in 84' !? |
|Dec-11-05|| ||Karpova: this guy looks like anthony kiedis|
|Apr-19-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Bela Toth
|Dec-24-06|| ||Karpova: Seems to play for Switzerland now. Earned the CC GM title in 2004
|Dec-24-06|| ||Prugno: Indeed: Bela Toth still keeps Italian citizenship, but he has been living and playing in Switzerland for something like 20 years now.|
|May-10-07|| ||Maatalkko: Looks a bit like Keith Emerson, with the hair and all.|
|Apr-19-10|| ||reti: Did he win the Italian championship several times just by showing up?|
|Apr-20-10|| ||WannaBe: Yes, he was the only participant. =))|
