    I think someone told Tim Blair that it was Dozsa when Blair featured it on his site.

    Neither looks nor sounds like Dosza and about 25 years younger I'd say. The bombastic theatricality of the character in the clip is not Dosza's style.

    Despite Dozsa's ''flamboyant'' reputation is a ''diner''. While at chess tournaments - he was usually (at least during his twilight years when I got to meet him regularly) polite and well-behaved (just eccentric at times). Yes, He was clearly delusional (loved talking about cheap being implanted in his head to manipulate his mind etc.) but very friendly and positive person. He appeared to be having no little money...but did pay his entry fees (as opposed to dinner bills) and on one notable occasional - when collections for the Olympiad Appeal were done during one of the tournaments he was participating in (from memory - It was Geelong Open -can not remember now what year it was), he reached into his pocket, and donated ALL the money that he had on him (was 100-150 dollars).

    P.S One possible way to reconstruct that ''donation event'' - I believe there are records for who donated ''how much'' what year.

    Lloyd Fell managed to notch a further 30 years over Paul's 63 years age of deceased. Miss both of them.

    A note that further discussion of the alleged Dozsa video has been moved here:

    http://www.chesschat.org/showthread....-actually-him)

    Those who knew him are clearly of the view it wasn't him so I am taking this to be fact unless firm evidence that it was emerges.
