|Sep-16-11|| ||Poulsen: <whiteshark> I may be missing your point (sorry), but Europe is not a country - its a continent - or a swedish rockband, if you like.|
PHN used to coach Magnus Carlsen at some point - maybe that's why some falls under the illusion, that he is norwegian.
Nothing wrong with norwegians, mind you :-)
|Sep-16-11|| ||whiteshark: <Poulsen>
|Sep-16-11|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: Bloody amazing that the biggest Danish talent since Bent Larsen (and a second for Carlsen and Anand) is called Norwegian!|
I shall have to ask him 22 Sept. 2011 at a lecture, here in Denmark, what he makes of these "Norwegian" accusations! :D
|Sep-16-11|| ||moronovich: Perhaps Magnus is a dane in a closet !?
Who knows ;)
And would we trade ? ...
|Sep-16-11|| ||rogge: No, we wouldn't ;)|
|Sep-16-11|| ||moronovich: <rogge: No, we wouldn't ;)>|
|Sep-16-11|| ||alexmagnus: <They sometimes reveals a lack precise knowledge.>|
Nothing comparable with a <Moldavian> chess site which instead of the news of <GM Bologan reaching round 2 of the World Cup> wrote about <IM Bologan reaching round 2 of the Moldavia Cup>. It didn't bother the news agency that the "Moldavia Cup" was held in Russia and the opponent in round 1 was a Pole (both being mentioned in the news message, though the name of the Pole was written wrong). The message ended with a mysterious sentence "playing with black chesses (!), our sportsman will compete in round 2".

This is a link to analysis of the game
Nielsen,Peter Heine - Volokitin,Andrei from the 27th ECC event:
|May-24-12|| ||Morten: Happy birthday, Peter.
Busy at the moment, I gather. Thumbs up!
|May-24-12|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: Happy birthday to the gentle, giant Dane!
I think it is safe to say Peter Heine is a tad busy, yes.
|May-24-12|| ||efvaatn: happy birthday|
|Oct-26-12|| ||Troller: Peter is in the lead in a rather overlooked round robin in Barcelona:|
Live games are available on the homepage as well.
|Feb-01-13|| ||Naniwazu: Peter has stopped working for Anand and is currently coaching Magnus Carlsen.|
|Apr-07-13|| ||Albertan: Peter Heine Nielsen won't work for Magnus Carlsen: Vishwanathan Anand|
|Apr-17-13|| ||Chessinfinite: Peter Heine Nielsen is one of the best trainer/ coach/ seconds any player in the World can have today. Anand knows this, and so does Carlsen. Absolutely the 'winning edge' in preparation imo to have him in the team.|
I think Anand will be thankful to Peter Heine Neilsen for his great help in his preparatory work. Good luck to PHN on his next venture with Carlsen.
|May-24-13|| ||JPi: <The player of the day> for many Japanese players. We were please to met not only a strong GM but also a man of a great simplicity. Both frank and subtle. In the name of a lot Japanese chess players Happy Birthday Heine Peter!|
|May-24-13|| ||Appaz: What a nice tribute, <JPi> and I can only testify to your kind words.|
I guess this Danish giant was both "frank and subtle" except in his physical presence :)
|May-25-13|| ||JPi: Well <Appaz> to be frank but not as subtle as our friend; as matter of -little- fa(c)t, alas, I'm not in position to argue.|
|Mar-30-14|| ||Jigsaw42: I hope it's the last time this Carlsen biased c--t comments on a major tournament.
And seriously, what's up with his grammar?|
|Mar-30-14|| ||NGambit: Enjoyed having PH do the commentary during the candidates. Hope to see him in many more important events.
As he (probably) won't be helping Magnus in the November match, I hope the organizers invite him. Svidler and PH combo would be awesome!|
|Mar-30-14|| ||RedShield: Yes, I wonder if Nielsen's noble gesture in refusing to work for Magnus against Vishy holds for the rematch. Principles are nice, but business is business.|
|Mar-30-14|| ||waustad: From one thing he said to Anna Bertsova today, I suspect that he will work with Carlsen this time. I don't recall the exact wording, but I got the impression that enough time had passed that it was no longer an issue. He mentioned Peter Leko working for both Anand and Kramnik, among others.|
|Mar-30-14|| ||Shams: <Jigsaw42> <I hope it's the last time this Carlsen biased c--t comments on a major tournament. And seriously, what's up with his grammar?>|
I'm guessing his English is a million times better than your Danish.
|Mar-30-14|| ||Chess for life: I thought GM Nielsen and his wife did a fine job commenting. However, GM Nielsen used "to a certain extent" and "in some sense" way too often. He also often ended many sentences with "but...", without following up with anything. I wish he was more assertive and sure of himself in his comments.|
|Mar-30-14|| ||waustad: From the point of view of someone whose second and third languages are dramatically worse than most European's second or third, I was very happy with the performance of both commentators. His interchanges with VC were interesting. Two GMs who know each other as well as one can seeing different things was elucidating.|
As an aside, here and in post mortems there seem to be those who have no qualms about interrupting others and those who need a cattle prod to be convinced to speak. Carlsen is naturally of the Bjorn Borg, cattle prod variety so sometimes he doesn't really know how to act. He's expected to talk so he does, but probably would rather not.
