Paul Dozsa...just worth a good chuckle or was he a victim of something more sinister?

     Paul Dozsa (1940-2003) was a legendary Hungarian/Australian master. Dozsa was born in Szeged, Hungary in 1940 and emigrated to Australia in the mid-1960s. He died in Melbourne in 2003, aged 63. 
     He was legendary, not so much for his chess, but for being an eccentric character. Dozsa, usually well-dressed and wearing a cravat, claimed to be a Hungarian nobleman and gave the impression that he was a person of wealth and owner of a string of high class restaurants. 
     Under an assumed name, he stayed in the finest 5-star hotels and dined at the best restaurants all over Australia then left without paying the bill. He was proud to be the world's most famous restaurant "bill-skipper." This frequently resulted in jail time, but he always assured the judge that he was extremely sorry and complimented the restaurant for serving the best food and wine he had ever had. He always admitted his guilt and agreed that what he did was stupid. 
     He also frequently got away with his scam because after dining he would tell the victims that his name was Paul Dozsa, he never paid his bills and he was broke and warned them that it was no use calling the police because they were never going to get paid. Rather that create a scene, the fine restaurants often just let him leave.  At other times, after eating, he would claim to be ill and ask for an ambulance to be called.  In another scam, he would rent a luxurious apartment, make his security deposit, buy expensive furniture, sell it and disappear.
     He eventually came up with a new excuse for his actions. The Hungarian Army had implanted a device in his head which made him do what he did.   The result was often a trip to the hospital for psychiatric assessment.

     Is it possible Dozsa actually believed his own story? He wrote that he spent most of his life as a subject of military research and in 1958, in Budapest, he received an implant and become a research subject of the Warsaw Pact Military Research. He claimed Hungarian research was extremely advanced and included:

1) Experiments to harmonize and dis-harmonize the research subjects energy field making it possible to cure illnesses before before it was manifested in the body. He also claimed that since that time he had not taken any medicine, painkiller, or sleeping pills. All those things were replaced with harmonizing electromagnetic waves and hypnotic suggestions that were communicated to his implant via satellite.
2) The implant enabled researchers to read his mind and process his thoughts
3) As a result, researchers dominated his mind and controlled his body. They could provide high levels of consciousness, health and euphoria in the subjects.
4) If they wanted, they could also kill or torture or make the subjects mentally or physically ill.
5) Also, experimenters established a certain standard of living for their subjects that was in the computer database.

For $3.95 you can download FBI and Defense Intelligence Agency files covering paranormal research by the Soviet Union on such things as controlled offensive behavior, Warsaw Pact paraphysics research, etc. 

     Dozsa claimed that using modern technology implants could be done by injection. Therefore sensors should be made available to show who may have received implants without their knowledge. And, the number of people would be surprisingly large.
     Sound crazy? According to Gennady Schchelkunov, a radio electronics researcher from the Istok Association in Moscow, sometimes voices can be heard in the head from the effect of microwave pulse radiation which causes acoustic oscillations in the brain. The newspaper Delovoi Mir ran an article in 1992 where a victim claimed “they” controlled his laughter, his thoughts and cause pain in various parts of his body. It all started in 1985, after he had openly criticized a government official.    
     According to victims all over the world, 24 hours 7 days a week, for years on end, victims are subjected to all kinds of harassment and torture. Most agree that the technology can remotely target and control every nerve of the body. Heart rate can speed up and slow down, bowel movements can be regulated, illnesses can turn on and off in an instant. Victims report hearing or voices in the head and sleep deprivation. Thoughts can be read, and played back to the victim. People around the victim can repeat verbatim, the victim's immediate thoughts. Dreams are manipulated, behaviors controlled, emotions literally played with and all types of pain can be started and stopped in all parts of the body.
     Most such people are labeled mentally ill and live with financial ruin, loss of health, social life and career. They all say the technology is very sophisticated and effective as a weapon. Some victims say they would use it on their torturers it given the opportunity. It is like a slow death.

  1. So many characters in chess... future posts on grigor minchev ?

  2. I never heard of Gregor Minchev who seems to be a real enigma! There is precious little information, but a lot of speculation about him! All I could find out was he is a Bulgarian player who appears to have abandoned chess and is now involved in an online game called Maps, or maybe it's Heroes; I'm not sure. He seems to be a mystery to gamers on those sites as much as he is to chess players. Some fans of the Halloween Gambit have quoted his games.

    His 41 games on chessgames.com cover the years 1986 to 1994, except for one game played on ICC in 2004, are all wins except for one draw. It gives his highest rating as 2331, but he has no FIDE rating. One person claimed the games were from a PGN on his website and some think the games are faked as nobody seems to have been able to locate the tournament results. Also, where did the 2331 rating come from?!

    So, it appears there just isn't enough information available on the guy to be able to do a post!!
