Mar-02-05  alexandrovm: Who the H@#|| is this guy?? He won all three games against great chess players! Polugaevsky, Larsen and Fischer!

Who is he?

Mar-02-05  shortsight: oh, no no no. look again, he actually lost to Polugaevsky.
Mar-03-05  alexandrovm: ups, you are right. But he won over Larsen and Fischer! Who is (was?) this guy?

  lostemperor: Some people may remember I have said I read of a (very) good player ( Kib. Café Nov-01-03) of the (recent) past. I owe you his name still. It was this César Munoz. One game is still missing here in the database. Munoz win over worldchampioncandidate Frederik Olafsson in a student's championship

  chancho: Cesar Munoz was a NM when he beat Fischer and Larsen.He is from Ecuador.

  FSR: Not bad - a virtual unknown with a 3.5/5 score against world-class players. (You may quibble with calling Lombardy "world-class," but circa 1957 he looked like a possible world championship aspirant. In that year, he won the World Junior Championship with the only perfect score in its history. Around that time, he also drew World Champion Botvinnik, won as Black against Spassky (who had been the youngest GM ever until Fischer came along), etc.)
Oct-30-11  DrMAL: Apparently the only games posted are ones where his much better opponent simply blundered and he won/drew from combination of good amateur play and tremendous luck.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <DrMAL> You're right - he does seem to have been very lucky in these games.
Oct-31-11  DrMAL: <FSR> Thanx for pointing out games, not sure if ELO 2138 refers to 1960 he did play well, but only 5 games. From blunders it seems he put pill in opponent's drink LOL, cheers.

  FSR: As of 1960, the Elo rating system was only being used in the U.S. as far as I know. FIDE started using it in 1970 or thereabouts, so if that is Muñoz's rating it presumably is from 1970 or later.
Oct-31-11  DrMAL: Yes I looked up you are right I thought it was other way around somehow because USCF went to silly logistic (instead of Gaussian ELO) curve. Their "floor" thing makes many USCF ratings very outdated, I only use ELO (FIDE). I see you are 15 years older but played good rapid game this year F Rhine vs Dmitri Sergatskov, 2011 probably many others recently, great!
Nov-24-15  PJs Studio: Before we crown Munož I think it's important to piont out - Fischer played horribly in this Dragon
