Feb-04-06  BIDMONFA: Octavio Troianescu

Bio in Polski:

<Cernauti, Romania> in the is a little "treasure":

<Czerniowce, Cernăuți, Tschernowitz, Tscherniwzi, Chernitvtsi, ...>

In 1916, Octavio's date of birth, the city was part of "Austria-Hungary" and when he was two years old, the Empire dissolved in 1918*, the city and its surrounding area became a part of the "Kingdom of Romania" (1881-1947). In 1940, Red Army occupied the area and it subsequently became a part of the Ukrainian SSR of the Soviet Union. Romania liberated the city and much of southern Ukraine in 1941 as part of the Axis attack on the Soviet Union during World War II. When Axis forces were driven out by the Red Army, the city was occupied once again, and rejoined the Ukrainian SSR in 1944. At a age of thirty years <Octavio Troianescu> has already "seen" (I guess he and his family soon headed towards the heartland) massive cultural upheaval .... he shared that experience with a whole generation.

Since 1991, Chernitvtsi has been a part of independent western Ukraine located in the historic Northern Bukovyna region.

According to the latest All-Ukrainian population census in 2001, the population of Chernivtsi was approximately 236,700 people of 65 nationalities. Among them 4.4% Romanians. As a cultural and architectural center, Chernivtsi was dubbed as Little Vienna, Jerusalem upon the Prut and the European Alexandria!

  FSR: Another player who died at 64, like Fischer, Staunton, Steinitz, Mednis, and Planinc.

  TheFocus: Happy birthday, Octavio Troianescu.
Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: <FSR> Please dont say more ! I just turned 63 yesterday ;)

OTOH,many fine moments can occur in one year...

Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <moronovich> Not to worry! The "death at 64" thing only applies to players who are at least IMs.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <moronovich> and <FSR> Guess we can breathe a large sigh of relief that we are merely competent players and not titled, else that number of doom might well rise to haunt us.
Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: I have one IM norm,but now I am glad that it was all :)
Premium Chessgames Member
  Infohunter: Well, I'm not titled, plus I turned 65 last fall, so I suppose I'm safe.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: C.H. O'D. Alexander, Vladimir Savon, Maximilian Ujtelky, Claude Bloodgood, and Karl Marx also died at 64. The last two show that this phenomenon is not strictly limited to IMs and above, as I used to think. I'm glad to see that <moronovich> survived.
Premium Chessgames Member
  moronovich: Thanks <FSR> !

Well,it is actually my birthday today,so I guess I am on the safe side now ;)
