Olá, amigos!Não encontrei uma chave com todos os nomes das pessoas que estão nessa foto. Identifiquei apenas alguns. Alguém consegue identificar os outros?
Desde já, agradeço a atenção de todos!!Monte Carlo, 01/Fev a 12/Mar de 1902.Teichmann, Mieses, Maroczy, ?, Pilsbury e Gunsberg (?)Para ajudar, uma outra foto do mesmo torneio, com legenda:
Teichmann, Mieses, Maroczy, ?, Pilsbury
These ones i think are correct but the 5th one doesn´t look like Gunsberg.
Can´t identify anyone else but nice photos though, i didn´t knew any from that year in that tournament.
Concerning the photos in #1430, Monte Carlo 1902 -
Several years ago I made a website that detailed this tournament. The reason for my interest is the location; the director, Arnous de Rivière; the president, Prince Dadian of Mingrelia; the greuling pairing system; the scoring system (the same as in 1902): awarding ¼ pt. for a draw, but all draws had to be replayed and "in case of a second draw, another ¼ point is added to the score of each. Otherwise the winner of the second game will receive an additional ½ point, or ¾ in all;" the fact that Pillsbury play in 1902, which he didn't in 1901. It was a very intriguing tournament for anyone interested in such things
#1420 is Teimour Radjabov!
#238 Browne's opponent looks like Onischuk
I want to buy a Tal poster - doesnt anyone know where? Very hard to find online... Ive only found this great shot and they wont ship to the Netherlands... http://www.amazon.com/Fischer-Mikhail-Leipzig-Championship-Americans/dp/B00DM15NFQ/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1375967437&sr=8-12&keywords=Mikhail+tal
#942...the one on the left looks like Nick Jonas
If you have a good photo, you could have it printed at a site like Shutterfly.
Did this thread die? or tranformed to another?
My pictures of the great people :)
The famous Toronto (Canada) chess organizer Vlad Dobrich. He organized many Opens what attracted >200 players. Brought B.Spassky to Canada and was his personal driver. He and his friends published chess magazine for several years. These days he runs rapid OTB tournaments every Saturday. Last Saturday we celebrated 50 years of his endeavour.
Here he talks about the endgame what he played with many GM :)

Damn, if only Chucky was hugging me in that pic!
Viktor Korchnoi, Saint-Petersburg, May 1992, first visit after emigration.
i mean no disrespect to this amazing forum thread, i just wanted to share a little bit of frivolty with the community. enjoy :D
I thought the images you posted were a worthwhile contribution. No apology is necessary.
Homepage of the Zürich Chess Challenge with pictures of the tournament 1953:
I'm going to have this thread locked. Its time has passed in that those truly great photos are quite hard to come by. Also, anyone having load-time issues will not see them get worse.
It's been great. The best example of community effort that I've seen here.
My thanks to all of you for making it such a fun time.
Please feel free to start up a Greatest Chess Photos II.
