  Gypsy: Kozma was a quite strong master, at his prime he ranked just outside of the top 100 players (chessmetrics have him as high as 113 in 1958). Kozma played for Czechoslovakia in several Olympiads. He had a natural lively tactical playing style; some of his games are just plain fun to over. It certainly is a pitty that his collection here is small. Here is a show-case of his games:

Tal vs J Kozma, 1957
J Kozma vs E Stoeckl, 1958
Smejkal vs J Kozma, 1967
J Kozma vs Sliwa, 1967
J Kozma vs Jansa, 1977

  OlimpBase: was he of Czech or Slovak origin?
Jun-01-06  lopium: He died young.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gypsy: <OlimpBase: was he of Czech or Slovak origin?> Slovak.
Jun-01-09  kramputz: Kozma is a Hungarian name
Jun-01-09  kramputz: If he died in 1975 ,how come there are several games posted upto 1989 ?
Premium Chessgames Member It seems that rumors of his death were greatly exaggerated. A member submitted a correction slip <There is an error in the player profile Julius Kozma. He did not die in 1979 and he is still living in Bratislava (Slovakia)>. We are going to take this person's word on the subject and update his player record accordingly.
Jun-01-09  WhiteRook48: Kozmack barriers
Dec-03-09  igst: He died on November, 26th, 2009.

  Honza Cervenka: <he won the Czech Championship in 1967> No, it was a Czechoslovak Championship then.
