He organized and directed the 1937 Stockholm Chess Olympiad. He, and his brother Gustaf , wrote Larobok i Schack, a book on openings and endings.|

Hello, old friend. Nice bio, but I have a question: what's a grosserer?
The only language in which I could find a meaning was in Danish where it seems to mean some sort of wholesaler.
|Mar-26-12|| ||Tabanus: Hi <twinlark> :) and thanks.|
Grosserer (in Norwegian), I think it's a "big wholesaler", one buying in large quanta and selling to many lesser stores. Perhaps "merchant"? I'll change to that, but feel free to find another word.
Btw I've seen some of your bios. I'm duly impressed, not least by your working capacity and language skills - your language sounds good and even poetic to me.
|Mar-26-12|| ||twinlark: Thanks Tabanus. Probably wholesale merchant, perhaps?|
|Mar-26-12|| ||Alien Math: Grosserer with German ö also ß are bigger larger or greater <grösserer also größerer>, if that any help|
Unknown the other languages of, sorry
|Mar-26-12|| ||waustad: That sounds a lot like grocer in English.|
|Mar-31-12|| ||Tabanus: <twinlark> Wholesale merchant it is. |
I uploaded a game by his brother Gustaf, assuming that my new avatar will appeal to the cg librarian.
