carpetshark: Sit tibi terra levis, maestro! RIP, condolences from Hungary!
   Feb-24-19 Stellan Brynell
carpetshark: Brynell, spelt with 'y'.Strange that in fastener engineering there should be a scale of material hardness called Brinell scale, spelt with 'i', well, he must be a tough player...
   Aug-18-18 Laszlo Binet Tapaszto
carpetshark: He fled from Hungary like many others after the 1956 revolution was crushed by the Soviet forces. According to the memoirs of GM István Bilek, he worked for a while as a teacher in Caracas.

carpetshark: I'm shocked to hear this saddest of news. My condolences. Sit tibi terra levis.
   Jul-20-18 W Winter vs Menchik, 1930 (replies)
carpetshark: What if 32.Rxf5 instead of 32.Qg8+? Isn't that faster?
   Nov-28-17 S Bhawoodien vs E Takawira, 2003
carpetshark: Instead of 19. ...,Rf8 perhaps eXf2 (threatening 20. ...,f3+) would have been worth a try, (at least more in the spirit of the game), but our silicon friend might not share my opinon.

carpetshark: I have his autobiography in Hungarian and it would be worth translating as it's full of interesting anecdotes and stories and analyses. I just never had the time. Perhaps some time in the future.
   Nov-30-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
carpetshark: Thank you, Chessgames for providing us with this excellent opportunity!
   Mar-03-15 Karpov vs Mephisto, 1983 (replies)
carpetshark: Instead of 20.Bd4... Alexander Khalifman's book recommends 20.g4 right away and after 20...Qa5 21.b4, Bxb4 the amazing move 22.Bb6! does the trick and Black loses.
