|Apr-08-04|| ||matein8: This GM has a very up-to-date chess calendar of events on his website: http://www.chess-calendar.nl/ |
|Oct-15-04|| ||Jesuitic Calvinist: I like Jonk's clear, classical approach. Look at those most popular openings - nothing strange or suspicious there. He is perhaps another I would put on the list of "average" GMs who can serve as good models for lower-ranked players. |
|Feb-09-05|| ||fasting: his actual rating is 2399, which must be considered low for a GM?! But he is pretty active, he was in Corus Tournament Group C, and now the Aeroflot Open! |
|Dec-29-05|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: GM Harmen Jonkman runs his own website at http://www.jonkman.demon.nl/.|
|Mar-31-06|| ||scrambler: EmperorAtahualpa & matein8 Thanks for those links.|
|May-30-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Harmen Jonkman|
|May-30-08|| ||Lutwidge: Jonkman's openings are pretty much the same ones I play, which is probably why his rating's a little low for a GM. :)|
Really, Jonkman, along with with his (to me) kindred spirit Hector, are two of my favorite masters, stylistically speaking.
|May-30-08|| ||brankat: Happy Birthday GM Jonkman!|
|May-30-09|| ||wordfunph: GM Harmen Jonkman's ICC handle is Flycatcher.
Happy Birthday GM Jonkman!!!
|May-30-10|| ||whiteshark: Quote of the Day
" The greatest compliment one can pay a master is to compare him with Capablanca."
|May-30-10|| ||Tabanus: <wordfunph: GM Harmen Jonkman's ICC handle is Flycatcher.>|
Hmm. I'm out of here.
|Feb-11-11|| ||waddayaplay: Looks like he doesn't like draws. :)|
|May-30-11|| ||redlance: Happy Birthday!!!|
