Oct-12-04  Pall: Just got an IM norm in the 2004 ECC.
Mar-03-08  nummerzwei: Today, he beat IGM Wang Yue (2698) in the first round of the 2008 Reykjavik Open! I was very excited when I followed the endgame stage of that game on playchess. Good luck to him for the rest of the tournament and also for his whole chess career, of course.
Mar-03-08  silvermoon: well done to Bjorn!

May-22-12  waustad: He had a 22 move win today at Salento 2012 where Bentivegna handed him his queen for a knight. He was so worried about avoiding one threat he ignored a much bigger one.
