  HeMateMe: In the USA, they change the spelling of this name to "Bloomquist." Otherwise, even the teachers in school will misspell it.
Jul-27-16  diagonal: Swedish Champion 2016, his first national title:, congratulations, Grandmaster Blomqvist!
Jan-31-17  BobbieM: Lol his name at FIDE is officially Erik 2006 Blomqvist. Also at chessbomb. Must have filled his forms in wrong.

  Tabanus: He was 2nd on tiebreak behind another Swede in the Fagernes Chess International (Norway) which ended on Sunday (17 October):
