Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-06-08  Eastfrisian: It seems, that he became in 1998 Chief (General Secretary) of the Norwegian Chess Federation (see here:

In the current FIDE-Rankling-List you can't find a Bjarke Kristensen, but a Bjarke Sahl (Norway), who is alo born in 1956. Did Kristensen change his name?

Feb-05-08  Troller: Yes, he has adopted the name of his wife I think. His name is Bjarke Sahl now, and he represents Norway.

  whiteshark: "Bjarke Kristensen is playing under the name Bjarke Barth Sahl but that nationality and name change is not yet reflected in the new FIDE rating list." (TWiC, 4th July 2005)
