Kibitzer's Corner
May-06-04  Poulsen: The strongest danish player in the 1920's and 1930's - 12 times (!) danish champ - still standing record. He was no real match for the strongest international players, through, prim. due to poor opening repertoire. Played topboard on the danish team, that won silver in the 1927 olympics. Game: see Andersen vs Hromadka
Jun-08-04  Poulsen: E Andersen vs Hromadka, 1927

  brankat: A fascinating run in Danish Championships!
Apr-10-09  sfm: One of his most 'famous losses' is a game against Alekhine where the world champion had to resort to what he was also known for: very unsportsmanlike behavior. Alekhine vs E Andersen, 1935

  Karpova: From Edward Winter's C.N. 6547

Harry Golombek: <An attacking player of great combinative talent, he was always dangerous to the very best, as Alekhine found out at Warsaw, 1935. Personally he was a most likeable man, being the possessor of a quiet, unobtrusive humour which distinguished him from the more boisterous nature of some of his compatriots.>

Apr-18-10  BobCrisp: Are the Danes notably prone to boisterousness? I usually reserve that term for other ethnic groups.
