Åge Vestøl born 1922 was Norwegian champion 1949. He passed away 30 March 2008.

<Aage Vestøl 1922-2008>

<Aage Vestøl, ett av Norges største sjakktalenter gjennom tidene, døde sist søndag, 85 år gammel. Han var medlem av Oslo Schakselskap fra 1934 eller 35 til sin bortgang, men deltok ikke i turneringssjakk etter NM i 1964.

Som første norske sjakkspiller gjorde Aage Vestøl furore som svært ung. Han vant nest øverste klasse som 15-åring i NM i Grimstad i 1938 og det samme som 16-åring i Nordisk turnering i 1939. Krigen kom i veien for en mulig utvikling til virkelig internasjonalt nivå. I perioden fra 1945 til 59 var Vestøl vår ledende spiller nest etter Olaf Barda. Han var Norgesmester i 1949, hadde flere høye plasseringer i Nordisk turnering og fem sjakkolympiader på rad fra 1950 til 58 på første- og annetbord. Ved sistnevnte anledning var han en hårsbredd fra å bli utnevnt til IM og spilte bl.a. remis mot Reshevsky. I Amsterdam i 1954 slo Vestøl både Bent Larsen og verdensstjernen Gligoric.

Undertegnede hadde gleden av å stifte bekjentskap med en fargerik og original sjakkmester da jeg intervjuet Aage Vestøl for Norsk Sjakkblad til 80-årsdagen hans på julaften i 2002. Intervjuet kan finnes i Norsk Sjakkblad 6/2002.>

  Tabanus: Aage Vestoel is same player as Aage Vestol, the two should be merged. Here he defeats Gligoric:

Gligoric vs A Vestol, 1954 0-1

Dec-23-10  YoungEd: I'd never heard of this player before today. I guess that made me a Vestol virgin.

  Penguincw: R.I.P. Aage Vestol.
Dec-23-13  Eastfrisian: .. and no foto.
Dec-23-13  YoungEd: Once I saw the player of the day, I came here to make a "clever" pun--I had just forgotten that I'd made the same one three years earlier! YoungEd ain't so young...

  Nosnibor: It would appear that Vestol won the Norwegian Championship on his first appearance ahead of the previous year`s champion,Barda who scored 4.5 points to Vestol`s 5 points.Due to this result he played on top board for Norway in an international match against Sweden where he was soundly beaten twice by Stahlberg whereas Barda won both of his games against Skold.Why are there no games from him winning the national title in 1949 shown here?
