|Jul-09-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Jozsef Horvath|
|Apr-15-07|| ||bauernfresser: The Horvaths rival the Gurevichs and the Ivanovs for holding the most titles. Adam, Csaba, Jozsef and Peter are GMs. Gyula, Imre and Tamas are IMs.
Jozsef and Csaba, the strongest two, are brothers. Does anybody know how, or if, the other Horvaths are related to each other?|
|Jul-12-09|| ||NyP: The Horváth brothers are probably the world's strongets brothers in chess (not counting the Polgar sisters).|

|Mar-04-11|| ||Caissanist: <The Horváth brothers are probably the world's strongets brothers in chess (not counting the Polgar sisters).>|
This may have been true when NyP posted it two years ago, but now the Vovks (Andrey Vovk and Yuri Vovk) appear to be at least as strong. They are also about twenty-five years younger, and still improving.
|Mar-04-11|| ||Caissanist: It looks like Horvath is the Smith of Hungary; the FIDE ratings site lists 134 Horvaths, including several different Jozsefs. The listed rating is for a different Jozsef Horvath, the GM currently has a rating of 2539.|
|Jul-15-14|| ||Jonathan Sarfati: Horváth is only the 4th most common family name in Hungary. It comes from the endonym for Croatian. So not surprisingly, the indentically pronounced name Horvat is the commonest Croatian name. Hungarians put their surnames first, so this grandmaster would be called Horváth Jozsef in Hungary (endonym Magyarország).|
|Apr-19-15|| ||Penguincw: Jozsef Horvath had a good tournament at the Bangkok Chess Club Open (2015), scoring 6.5/9 (+5,-1,=3), and 6th overall (being the 8th seed). He had no easy tournament, as he had to face <each> of the top <4> seeds (-1 against 2682).|
For his efforts, he gained 16 points (2522 -> 2538), which is likely the biggest gain out of all the GMs that participated.
|Mar-06-19|| ||HeMateMe: wasn't there a Panzer general during WWII named Horvath?|
