Kibitzer's Corner
May-12-05  WorldChampeen:

Co-Author of the Wondering King; Book on Fischer; apparently related to the Dutch video program too.

Oct-23-05  tutu: Hans Böhm is one of the more interesting people in the Dutch chess scene. An old friend of Jan Timman, they shared their bohemian view on professional chess. Together they made an chessbook for beginners together with an LP!!!. He also had a radioshow on chess in the '80's!!! Later on he became a co-host on a comic tv-show in Holland.
May-07-10  jstufflebean: H-BOMB!!

  tpstar: <myschkin> Really?!

I entered Smejkal vs H Bohm, 1976 as "Bohm Shake Shake Shake the Room" in the Pun Contest (thanks to the fantastic Informant Game Collection by <TheAlchemist>) but it didn't fly.

Did you catch his game against Death in the Kibitzer's Cafe? ;>D

  Stonehenge: Congrats on the royal award. Well deserved!
Jul-10-12  wordfunph: Dutch IM Hans Bohm and GM Robin Swinkels (then an IM) once played a 15-minute game with 5 seconds increment at the bottom of tropical sea at a depth of 4 meters.

The game ended in a draw.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: That raises a lot of questions.

1) Which tropical seas are only four meters deep?

2) Were they snorkeling, or was the increment used to resurface for air?

3) How did they get around the dress code?

  boz: Get your filthy Hans off my Bohm.
Jul-15-12  achieve: Hans Bohm was to Timman what Watson was to Holmes, as Timman and Bòhm were on one big road/trip throughout the European continent from 1970 to 1975. Inseparable, and best friends.

For those interested in the "Hans Bohm" pronunciation: I submitted the correct one to CG and you can hear it by clicking the "PRONUNCIATION" button located at the top of the Bio section.

Aug-24-14  ketchuplover: OMG!!! He's 64!!!!!!!!!
May-30-19  BIDMONFA: Hans Bohm

BÖHM, Hans

May-30-19  Nosnibor: I recall him playing at Hastings 1973/74 when he played in the Challengers Section scoring 6points from 9 games.Timman was playing in the Premier at the same time but like achieve stated they were always together when not playing.
Premium Chessgames Member
  RadioBoy: I read an interview with him where he stated that if Timman had agreed to a draw in an otherwise not important game he would have made a Grandmaster Norm and possibly his final one.
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: Kudos to Timman. <GM> doesn't stand for <gimme>.
Jan-20-20  Swedish Logician: This is the "Grandmaster Norm" game from OHRA 1984 at Amsterdam H Bohm vs Timman, 1984 Readers of Dutch can find more details here:

This was the last game between Böhm en Timman, but their penultimate one, a tactical Grünfeld 4. Bf4, the year before was more interesting H Bohm vs Timman, 1983

Jan-20-21  Octavia: I won against him in a simul today!!! I'm 5 years older than him!!!
