Winner of the tournaments in Monte Carlo (1902, 1904), Ostend (1905), bartenders (1905), Carlsbad (1923).


Name Geza Maróczy today primarily associated with the well-known system in the Sicilian Protection. Indeed, it is difficult to remember so that's gathering of at least one game played this famous chess player. This is all the more surprising that the tournament success Maróczy much higher than say in Schlechter, Pilsberi or Yanovsky, players with whom he competed in the beginning of the century. From 1899 to 1908 he played in 15 tournaments, with only one of them fell below third place! The point here is probably in the style of game - a restrained and discreet.

Even in chess, far inferior to him in class, the Hungarian grandmaster played often protracted endshpili, in which he was the acknowledged master. However, one methodical, with whom he won those who, they say, you need to win, could envy of many. In chess Maróczy met relatively late - in 15 years. In 24 years, he made his debut (incidentally, on the recommendation of the world champion Lasker) in a side tournament in Hastings, but a year later, makes the leap into the world elite won second place in the super-tournament in Nuremberg in 1896. Despite the obvious success of the tournament in the first decade of XX century, the chances Maróczy on the world chess crown were still low. In fights with the leaders of those years, and especially with Lasker, he was having a hard.

He claims to have acquired title to the real shape in 1906 - precisely at the time was scheduled for a match with Lasker, who was to take place in three countries (Cuba, Austria-Hungary and the United States). However, there was a revolution in Cuba, Austria-Hungary refused to carry out only part of the match - generally not happened: Perhaps precisely because of the fundamental style of play Maróczy a very long time maintained a greater practical effect. For example in the famous tournament in New York in 1924 he looked very worthy. Amid Maróczy, his longtime rival Yanovsky (who was almost the same age as the Hungarian chess player) looked just "whipping boy". That team was headed by Geza of Hungary at the first Olympics in 1927, showing an excellent result 9 of 12. Maróczy was an excellent chess teacher. He is perhaps the only man who called his teacher at the same time champion and world champion (Euwe and Menchikov).
