I was born in 1957, married, father of three sons, (28, 23, 16 years old). I graduated from Lajos Kossuth University of Science (Debrecen, HUN) in faculty of chemistry acquiring a diploma as teacher of chemistry at the same time. I completed a half year-course in 1989 at Moscow, Timoshenko Military Academy where I was trained in a special course of theoretical military organisation. I can still take benefit of these studies in my present organisation activities.
Together with my wife Mrs.Nagy Ilona Borbély we ceaselessly organise professionally the First Saturday chess tournaments in Budapest.
Since the beginning we have provided alternatives of achieving GM, IM, WGM, WIM – norms as well as getting or improving FIDE-ratings. Usually we start a GM an IM and two FIDE-master’s groups every month except for January.
Peter Leko the highest ranked Hungarian GM (at present) achieved one of his GM-norms here. Amongst others, now world-famous Hungarian GM-s like Ferenc Berkes (present Champion of Hungary) Peter Ács ( U18 World Champion) Csaba Balogh (U18 European Champion) also succeeded in performing GM-norms here. Many of our foreign guests were successful here, like Beim (AUT) Lugovoi,Yemelin and Volzhin (RUS) U12 World Champion Nguyen Ngoc Truongson and Dao Thien Hai(VIE), top GM-s like Gadir Guseinov and Teimour Radjabov and (AZE), Liss and Postny (ISR) Milov (SUI), Stoczek (CZE) etc.
At FIDE-Congress Calvia 2004 (Spain) I was awarded the International Chess Organizer (IO) title. At present I am the only organiser in Hungary having this title. This puts a great responsibility on us, since we would like to comply with FIDE-organisational rules fully for the participants should enjoy tournaments organised as high quality as possible.
