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

  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?

Jul-10-12  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.
