  jessicafischerqueen: <Pap Jenő (Miskolc)

Born: 1870-02-11 in Miskolc
Died: 1905-01-29 in Miskolc

Postmaster in Miskolc, son of Pap Dezső (his mother was Bethlenfalvy Fáygel Mária).

Had written a study on the history of the development of Hungarian chess, which had begun to be published by the 'Hungarian Chess Magazine', published in Temesvár in 1901, but remained unfinished due to the magazine being canceled.

He also would have liked to have published his father's chess legacy, and had prepared the manuscript, but that too was lost after his sudden death.

As an OTB player, he was the teacher, and later training partner, of Charousek Rezső.

He was also a renowned chess problemist of his time, with his puzzles appearing mainly in the 'Budapest Chess Review'.

Died of tuberculosis.>

Mar-29-16  zanzibar: I have another game, with Charousek as White, I think from 1901.

But the contemporaneous source definitely used Papp.

Is there a similar source where I can find Pap?

Sep-26-18  Telemus: <zanzibar: I have another game, with Charousek as White, I think from 1901.> Amazing, considering that Charousek died in 1900.

Joking aside, I have five more games between these players, where Pap got three draws.
