May-07-05  aw1988: Happy Birthday!
Aug-31-05  mcgee: Lobron did well on the stock markets in the 1990s so can probably play chess with a more leisurely mien now. Won the last BBC TV Master Game to be televised, in 1981-2.

Zufrieden sein ist große Kunst,
zufrieden scheinen großer Dunst,
zufrieden werden großes Glück,
zufrieden bleiben Meisterstück.

  wordfunph: any news to this once famous German GM? i remember him as one of the most-feared GMs in 1980s..

Trivia: After losing to German GM Eric Lobron in the last round, GM Semen Dvoirys kneeled and pound his head three times on the floor with great force.

i forgot where i got this info...anyone who could validate the story please?

Just to clarify, whose head?

  lost in space: I played once in the early 1980ties against him in a simul. He won nearly all games - also against me - I blundered away a pawn, was not able to hide it as a sac - I was not getting any initiative for the pawn.

This was the opening: Opening Explorer

We were both young and looking good at that time. At least in my case only the "and" remained.

Happy Birthday, Eric

May-07-11  TheTamale: You look pretty good for your age, Eric. Lose the baseball hat!
May-07-11  DanielBryant: Nothing wrong with ballcaps.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Here's another player I know with a ball cap on. Daniele Vocaturo.
May-07-11  I play the Fred: Derrick Rose may have won the MVP, but Lobron is the NBA's best.
Jun-17-11  Antiochus: Although looks logic, I loved this quenn sac E Lobron vs P Sjodahl, 1994

  wordfunph: <32nd Rilton Cup in Stockholm:

New Year celebrations took its usual toll, GM Eric Lobron fell down the stairs on his way out of a party and sported a fine black eye and swollen hand for the rest of the event.>

happy birthday, GM Lobron!

May-07-14  lakers4sho: Kevin Durant wins MVP, is he officially better than Lobron?
May-07-14  SugarDom: See you in the finals. BTW, how's your team doing?
May-07-14  Xeroxx: happy birthday
