His most notable success was the first place in the Reggio Emilia tournament 1983/1984 ahead of Krunoslav Hulak and Boris Spassky.
Premium Chessgames Member Is Karel Mokry Jr the same player?

  Gypsy: <Is Karel Mokry Jr the same player?> I don't think so -- perhaps son. Olomouc is Karel Mokry's home town, in fact he probably organized the Open. In Czech, Jr is used so rarely that it is quite suggestive that great pains were taken here to distinguish the 'real' Mokry from the Jr one. (I will be able to check for sure in a couple of weeks.)

As for GM Mokry: He seems to be one of the nicest guys out there. (My father also thinks a world of him.) I actually met Mokry years back when he came to Brno to visit his grandfather in a hospital. He was still a teenage candidate of master back then. I shared a hospital room with his grandpa and 3 other old guys. Being bed bound, I was solving puzzles in CS Sach and, noticing that, Mokry's gramps raved about his grandson.

Sundays were 'visiting days' and when their family came from Olomouc to visit, grandpa insisted that his grandson plays a game with me. We obliged, though that was hardly the best way to spend the precious time they had together. Mokry gave me White so I opened 1.c3 to make things fair. His mind was not on chess, at least initially, and so I got an excellent position and transformed it into a fine early endgame. We aggreed to draw, when it was the high-time for him to catch a train back to Olomouc.

  Honza Cervenka: According to's database Karel Mokry Jr was born in 1987 and it is definitely a different player. But he is not in the database of the Czech Chess Federation as a registered active player now.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Honza Cervenka: With a little help of Google I have found a list of Czech players with national ELO ratings from 2002 in which are two players with name Karel Mokry. Karel Mokry Jr. was born according to this list on the 19th of July 1988. See

Happy Birthday GM Karel Mokry!

If you haven't dealt with Karel, he's just terrfic. Very reliable, helpful. Shipping an issue on large orders - some foreign items better to work with Brandreth, etc. But I've gotten some good bargains from ChessBookShop.

Feb-08-10  TheFocus: I made a large order from Karel Mokry (40 books). He gave me a 10% discount just for asking. A gentleman.
Feb-20-12  DarthStapler: Carol Mockery? That's what I would do as a kid on Christmas, I would make up new words to all of the Christmas Carols

<Honza Cervenka>,
You could say Karol made a "mokry" of the ratings for this tournament!
