Mar-08-05  WTHarvey: Here are some puzzles from Csaba's games not given here.
Mar-08-05  aw1988: <WTHarvey> Your avatar looks remarkably like Lawrence's.
Jun-30-05  aw1988: Um, such was the case months previous.
Oct-17-05  WTHarvey: Yep, it was weirdly identical.
Oct-17-05  AlexanderMorphy: WT Harvey do you have any puzzles from Kiril Georgiev's games?
Oct-17-05  WTHarvey: <AlexanderMorphy> No, but I probably should.
Jun-05-06  BIDMONFA: Csaba Horvath


Jul-28-09  sleepkid: Csaba Horvath's current rating is 2522. I'm not sure where chessgames gets 2225 from. Please update his page.

  wordfunph: all games by GMs Jozsef and Csaba Horvath ended in draws, call it brother-draws! :)
Mar-05-11  Caissanist: There are multiple Csaba Horvaths (and Jozsef Horvaths) in the database, the rating is for a different Csaba Horvath.
Jun-05-17  Nosnibor: I find it hard to believe that the first two games in the db were played against seasoned masters when Horvath was only 11 years of age. Surely this must be a different Horvath.
Jun-05-17  Retireborn: <Nosnibor> A quick google suggests that it was Tamas Horvath (b1951) who played at Ribnica 1979.

Chessbase Big 2002 knows of around 50 Horvaths, good luck to anybody who wants to sort 'em out!
