Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-16-05  fasting: Poulsen was once danish champion... wasn't he?
Feb-16-05  sneaky pete: <fasting> He wasn't ONCE Danish champion, he was TWICE, in 1945 and 1952. Also he was equal first in 1939, 1940 and 1951, but lost the play-offs.
Feb-16-05  fasting: aiii thanks!
Nov-05-09  Poulsen: His nickname was "Ploven" - the plow.

As it was generally the case with top-level danish players in the "pre-Larsen-era", he had virtually no international achievements. All were happy amateurs - and almost never participated in international events - apart from the olympics.

Here he nails Stoltz:
