SANDOR BOROS
(born Aug-31-1907, died 1944, 36 years old) Hungary

[what is this?]

Sandor Boros was born in August 1907. He was a chess player and study composer.

Sándor Boros was a chess player and a specialist of two-movers. He wrote 100 Válogatott Feladványa in 1937 and in 1939 he compiled with László Lindner an anthology of Hungarian problems. His favorite mechanism was pins. The "Boros theme" requires that the mating move be a pinning move as well.(1)

  Peligroso Patzer: The following is a fine win by today's Player of the Day against a 20-year-old Laszlo Szabo (who had won the Hungarian Championship at the age of 18): S Boros vs Szabo, 1937

  Sneaky: Seems like not much is known about this player, other than that he passed away at a terribly young age.

I do not know anything about Boros's biography, but his dates raise the ominous possibility that he was a victim of the Holocaust.

  whiteshark: A study by Sandor Boros http://www.rubriky.net/fakty/r1997/...

Maybe some additional info, if someone is understanding Hungarian.

Oct-07-07  pawnofdoom: This guy would have made a great player. Look at the game below of how badly he beat Szabo (who did go on to become a really good player). But unfortuantely, Boros died away at the age of like 37... :(
