|Jan-04-06|| ||karlth: Born in 1969. One of only two Grandmasters from the second wave of Icelandic chess players that emerged after Hjartason, Peturson, Olafsson and Arnason in the late 80s and early 90s.|

|Jan-09-06|| ||atripodi: <Real estate broker by profession.>
Gotta be a tough gig in Iceland.|
|Jan-13-06|| ||karlth: Well considering that house prices have about doubled in the last 3 years it is quite lucrative at the moment. :)|
|Jan-13-06|| ||PivotalAnorak: <karlth> Thorhallsson is "one of only two grandmasters...", who's the other one ? Thanx in advance.|
|Jan-13-06|| ||karlth: Helgi Gretarsson. World Junior Chess Champion 1994. |
I don't know how much it affected things but a few decades ago the Icelandic Government decided to pay every GM a teacher's salary for his title alone.
Quite a unique boost for chess but then again it has sometimes been called the national sport.
|Jan-13-06|| ||karlth: Perhaps I should add the GMs have to be active to recieve their pay. |
Anyway a few weeks ago Thorhallson "donated" the rights to his salary to a recently immigrated GM.
A very generous gesture from a very nice chap.
|Jan-13-06|| ||PivotalAnorak: <karlth> thanks for these interesting informations. Cheers !|

The Scandinavian doesn't seem to work well for this man. Possibly regional pride keeps him coming back...
|Sep-22-10|| ||lentil: <blingice> -8 +6 overall is not a bad record as black. Also consider that he lost his first 6 (recorded) games with this opening, so since then he is -2 +6. Not so bad at all.|
|Mar-10-11|| ||vonKrolock: Þröstur Þórhallsson|
|Mar-10-11|| ||Tabanus: I believe he is underrated simply because of playing mostly in Iceland. He defeated Gustafsson today:|

|Jun-02-12|| ||whiteshark: CONGRATULATIONS!!!
<GM Throstur Thorhallsson was crowned <the Icelandic Champion 2012 in chess>> after beating IM Bragi Thorfinnsson in an extraordinarily close and exciting match.
Thorhallsson and Thorfinnsson were joint winners of the Icelandic Chess Champion in April this year, the strongest Icelandic Championship so far during this century. They first played a four-game match, which ended 2-2 (one victory each and two draws) last Monday.
