|Jan-05-07|| ||BIDMONFA: Leif Ogaard|
|Jan-05-07|| ||Waffles: Happy Birthday!|
|Jan-05-07|| ||Rolfo: Remember him well, the best Norwegian in the pre Agdestein era.|
|Mar-11-07|| ||Appaz: Leif Øgaard has just made his final GM-norm according to http://www.bergensjakk.no/|
|Mar-11-07|| ||egilarne: Congrats to Leif Øgaard!
Now he becomes Norways 9th GM.
(Given the possibilities of today he would have been GM in the 1970-ies.)
|Mar-11-07|| ||egilarne: Leif Øgaards GM title concludes a fantastic weekend for Norwegian chess:
Magnus Carlsens result in Morelia-Linares and Jon Ludvig Hammers GM-norm in Capelle le Grande.|
|Mar-11-07|| ||angslo: I wonder if he is the oldest player ever to acquire gm norm in chess history. This is really great.|
|Mar-11-07|| ||Appaz: But does he not also need to raise his rating above 2500 before getting the GM-title? I don't think he has ever achieved that.|
|Mar-11-07|| ||Interbond: Øgaard has been over 2500, actually I think it was 2510, in 1982 or 1983?|
|Mar-12-07|| ||Interbond: In round 8 in his last tournament. Norwegian Team Telio series,Øgaard played against GM Kjetil A. Lie. Lie played white 1.d4 d5 2.e4 , but refused to Blackmar Diemer gambit at played c6.Lie won a fine game in his typical attacking style, but of course it would have been very interesting to see at BDG at this level!|
|Jan-05-10|| ||waustad: Chess metrics rated him 34th in the world in 1982. Their number was 2664, though their numbers and actual Elo ratings do not always gibe.|
|Jan-05-10|| ||Appaz: <waustad> Even if those numbers are correct or not, it gives an indication as to how good he really was at his peak.|
His bio should mention that he is now a GM.
|Jan-05-13|| ||Kikoman: Happy Birthday GM Leif Ogaard. :D|
|Jan-05-13|| ||Kikoman: <The GM title was finally approved at FIDE's presidential board meeting in Tallinn on 22-24 June 2007.> :D|
|Sep-11-17|| ||epistle: He works at the beach, rescuing drowning swimmers.|
