Born 30th June 1957 in San Nicolas
He was awarded the IM title in 1982.
Premium Chessgames Member We just did something unprecedented: we switched the player of the day to Daniel Campora. The reason we did this is that we are testing out new POTD system.

From this point forward, the Player of the Day will no longer be randomly selected, but instead will be picked from a list which mostly coincides with player's birthdays, and sometimes relevant holidays. We think this will be much more fair and interesting than the random system.

Jun-30-06  Confuse: <> i thought u already did that what with all the coincidences already! thats cool though, thanks for your hard work : )

CAMPORA, Daniel H.

Mar-11-07  Inf: well he is past his prime...
May-18-08  Albertan: Campora was the Gold Medal Winner for best performance on board one at the Moscow 1994 Chess Olympiad. In this event he defeated (elo in brackets, opponents listed based on road they played Campora) :James (2260),Mitkov (2495), K. Spraggett (2530),Hai (2475),Morozevich (2575),drew with Oll (2615) and defeated Robatsch (2410, Topalov (2645) and Torre (2520).

Mar-11-07 stated: : well he is past his prime... >

I do not agree. Campora's elo has risen the past few years. According to the FIDE website, Camporas' elo is now 2532.

Jun-21-08  xanadu: Albertan: nice to meet you again in Chessgames, after a long time. Regards, Xanadu

  Fusilli: <Yopo> Great game!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Fusilli: I don't know who complicated Campora's last name adding his mother's last name to it (Sivori). In Argentina, we rarely use two last names, which are common in the rest of the Spanish-speaking world, with the first one being the father's last name and the second one the mother's maiden name. There, he was always known as Daniel Campora. I only saw the "Sivori" part, for the first time, on this website.
Jun-07-15  Shams: <Fusilli> You should post that in the Biographer's Bistro.
