|Mar-27-05|| ||Gypsy: < Many years back, during a junior championship of Czechoslovakia, Soukal led the pack by one point ahead of the field going into the last round. For the title, he therefore needed just a draw. Soukal's last game, with Trapl, was a tough, sharp fight. Trapl lost his way in the complications during the transition into middlegame and lost a piece. Thus, without realy expecting it, the leading player suddenly had the tournament victory in his sight. He was still young, inexperianced, and seeing the title almost at his grasp, he offered a draw. After all, how could under the circumstances oponent realy refuse it? But Trapl thought a bit, then turned down the draw-offer, signed a resignation, and congratulated his oponent to the title of the champion. It was gesture of a real gentleman. > J. Vesely, "Psychological Guide through Chess Games". |
|Mar-28-05|| ||Hinchliffe: <Gypsy> I followed the line of thought relating to resignations etc and found your story. Well worth the discover. An excellent story and one that was very relevant to the discussion started by Richard Taylor. And I agree with the comments made at the end of the article - Mr. Trapl is a real gentleman. |
|Apr-04-10|| ||Honza Cervenka: On Monday, March 29, just five days after his 68th birthday Jindrich Trapl passed away. R.I.P.!|
|Jan-13-11|| ||PhilFeeley: <"You played like Tal," became one of the highest accolades for attackers. With his spectacular sacrifices and combinations, Tal won the hearts of chess fans and inspired many players. Plenty of them tried and failed to play like him. It was especially tempting to sacrifice pieces when Tal was present. At the 1961 European Team Championship in Oberhausen, Germany, Tal could only watch the incredible adventures of the young master Jindrich Trapl who in nine games sacrificed eight pawns, two exchanges, two light pieces and a queen. He was promptly called the Czech Tal and some wondered why the real Tal was not nicknamed the Latvian Trapl.>|
