Nov-29-05 : Excellent result for this young Hungarian GM, taking Karjakin out in the tie-breaks. Here's his FIDE rating card. I had never heard of him prior to this tournament. AdrianP
Dec-09-05 : Can we have his biography? What a strange thing that we only have a 2400 rating here, for a GM title. lopium

Dec-09-13 : Is he any relation to the Balogh associated with one of my favorite "junk" openings e4 d6 d4 f5? johnnyb3
Dec-09-13 : perfidious <johnnyb3: Is he any relation to the Balogh associated with one of my favorite "junk" openings e4 d6 d4 f5?>
That honour goes to
Janos Balogh instead.
Dec-10-13 : Oh, I knew it wasn't the same guy, I just wondered if it was a grandson or something. johnnyb3
Dec-10-13 : No idea, but the surname is not uncommon-used to know perfidious Alex Balogh when I haunted Montreal blitz events in the 1990s.
Dec-10-13 : Annie K. <the surname is not uncommon>
Correct. :) It's an archaic Hungarian word for 'left-handed'.
It doesn't carry the negative connotations of the English 'sinister' though.
Dec-10-13 : perfidious <Annie K.>: Some twenty years ago, I was working for IBM in Vermont and had a co-worker who equated left-handedness with being sinister. Not that she was the brightest person in creation, but this was mind-blowing to me.
Dec-10-13 : Annie K. <perfidious> this sort of unthinking acceptance of linguistic associations is the mark of monolingualism. :\
Aug-14-14 : At the just finished Tromso Olympiad, GM Csaba Balogh (2637) won two silver medals, team (Hungary) and individual on board 2. cro777
He scored 7/9 with a performance rating of 2839.
Aug-14-14 : Grats to Csaba on his great performance at the Chess Olympiad! :) Natalia Pogonina
Aug-14-14 : It was a controversial decision to select him playing board 2 in front of Method B Richard Rapport Zoltan Almasi and even Judit Polgar but it certainly paid great dividends.
Great performance! Bravo Csaba.
Aug-14-14 : The happy Hungarian team with the silver medals.
Aug-15-14 : The 2014 Chess Olympiad - The medalists on Board 2
Csaba Balogh (silver), Ngoc Truongson Nguyen (gold) and Ding Liren (bronze).
Mar-10-15 : Rock the Csaba. OhioChessFan

Mar-10-15 : The sexiest guy ever. Csaba is funny and hunky. All the girls love Csaba because he's a chick magnet. He's a flirt but he knows how to treat a girl right. He is amazing and smart. Nina Myers
Mar-10-15 : OCF beat me to it. HeMateMe
Jan-24-17 : Nina beat me to it. I mean, I wasn't going to say it in any case, but she did beat me. Granny O Doul
