[what is this?]
Andreas Gulbrandsen was born 1906 in Moss (Norway). He entered the local chess club at the age of 15, inspired by Lärobok i Schack (Manual of Chess) authored by Ludvig Collijn, and soon became its leading player. Eventually he was strong enough to be 1st reserve on the 1931 olympiad team, after which he went on to win the Norwegian championship (1931). He then also played 12 simultaneous blindfold games (+7 =2 -3). Later he played on the olympiad team in 1936 (the unofficial Munich olympiad) and 1937 (here with a draw vs Frank James Marshall). Author of the book Tårnet i sjakk (Damm & Søn, Oslo 1947). He was Moss club champion innuberable times (latest in 1977) until he retired from chess in 1978.

  Tabanus: Andreas Gulbrandsen, Norwegian Champion 1931. The same year he played 12 simultaneous blindfold games (+7=2-3).

  Tabanus: I figured out his birth date from the 1910 population census. I'm not entirely sure but don't think he is related to IM Arne Vinje-Gulbrandsen. His Norwegian blindfold simul record from 1931 stood until 1998 when it was beaten by GM Rune Djurhuus (13 games, +7 =4 -2).
