Grandmaster Vlastimil Jansa on Vlastimil Hort:
"In my opinion V.Hort was one of the cleverest players in the world. He was a very universal player. He was probably not exceptional in strategy or tactics, but very well balanced in all aspects of the game.
Because of this he was always able to change his style to meet new opponents by playing more psychological chess."
International Master Tibor Karolyi was Hungarian Champion in 1984 and is renowned as an author and trainer. He won the Guardian Book of the year prize in 2007 and coached Peter Leko until he became a world class grandmaster.
