Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-17-05  FHBradley: 1971 seems to have been Sven-Goran's annus mirabilis. Whatever happened to him? A swedish champion, he must have been more than a wood-pusher. I wonder if anyone of our Swedish friends can explain this disappearance.
Mar-17-05  Cyphelium: <FHBradley> S-G Malmgren is currently a professor at the University of Gothenburg. He probably devoted more and more time to his academic career, and seems to have given up serious playing in the early eighties. He still played in team matches for 10 years after winning the championship though.

The Gothenburg club SK Kamraterna still has him on their rating list, but checking their web page one sees that he's had the same rather low rating (2060) for at least 7 years now. So he probably doesn't play much.

I got most of my information from the home page of that club:

It's in Swedish, but there are some more of his games there if you're interested.

Apr-25-06  BIDMONFA: Sven-Goran Malmgren


Dec-31-14  Eastfrisian: The FIDE-player card on this Site and on the Site of BIDMONFA that Malmgren is born 1955. Is it the same one?
