|Dec-06-05|| ||Karpova: here's a picture of rosselli del turco:
|Dec-06-05|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: <Karpova> When I try to view the picture I get the following error message: "You are not authorized to view this page"|
|Dec-07-05|| ||Karpova: ok, here is another try:
|Dec-08-05|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: <Karpova> Lol, sorry to say but the second link does not work either! When clicking on your second link I am automatically being forwarded to:|
|Dec-08-05|| ||Karpova: strange, this link works on my computer.
i found it on this site: http://xoomer.virgilio.it/cserica/s...
|Dec-17-05|| ||nikolaas: Can anybody tell if he was a 'marquis'? Because the tournament book of London 1922 gives in the major open section that a certain "Marquis del Turco" finished 10th.|
|Dec-17-05|| ||Karpova: i think that this was true but i can't confirm it.
he's called Stefano Rosselli, Marchese del Turco.
here's a biography (just on chess):
|Jul-17-06|| ||brankat: Well, today is Mr. Rosselli del Turco's birthday. Have a good one, wherever You may be!|
|Jul-17-06|| ||brankat: On top of winning the Italian Championship 3 times, R.del Turco had fine results in some individual games. He did have a couple of Draws against Alekhine, also vs Dr.Vidmar and Dr.Euwe, Reti and Rubinstein. 2 Wins against Dr.Tarrasch, Gruendfeld, Colle. Apparently he started playing Chess somewhat late, but was possessed of considerable talent.|
|Jul-17-06|| ||Rocafella: I doubt he can have a good birthday when he's dead...|
|Jul-17-07|| ||skiskichess5: According to Chessgames he actually beat Tarrasch 3:2 having black in all 5 games!
|Jul-17-07|| ||Calli: <Can anybody tell if he was a 'marquis'?>|
According to the Italian site, storia degli scacchi, he was. The following page says "Marchese" -> Marquis
|Nov-28-08|| ||dorsnikov: that photo IS NOT Rosseli Del Turko. it's Akiba Rubinstein in the 1930's.|
