Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-30-04  percyblakeney: Palo needs a draw in the last round in Gausdal for a GM norm, he can win the tournament if he wins the last game against current leader Erwin L'Ami, but a draw is no bad guess. Palo's only loss has been against Carlsen.

PALO, Davor

Jun-14-07  Troller: Davor Palo came to Denmark as a refugee in 1993. He grew up in Skanderborg, Jutland, but now resides in Copenhagen. I presume he is studying, as he has not been very active for the last year.

  whiteshark: Looks as fierce as a dragon
Oct-29-12  Troller: After several years of inactivity (chesswise at least), Davor has appeared in the first two rounds of the Danish League this season, winning against Sebastian Nilsson and Bjorn Ahlander.

  Naniwazu: One of my friends knew Davor Palo. He used to attend my school. I knew he was a chess player, but I never knew he was this good. My local chess club 'Skanderborg Skakklub' seems to produce some quite talented chess players.
Apr-08-13  Troller: Davor won the Danish Championship during Easter, ahead of (among others) GMs Sune Berg Hansen, Lars Schandorff, Allan Stig Rasmussen and Jens Kristiansen. Quite impressive after only a few league games since his comeback.

There's a video of Davor Palo and Lars Schandorff battling it out in the last round on youtube:

Davor Palo needed a draw and got it. Lars Schandorff was the only undefeated played in the event.

Mar-01-14  RedPillMatrix: Davor Palo won the Player of The Year Award:

He recently launched his personal blog:

Bloglovin seems to be an interesting way to subscribe:

Mar-30-14  Dalle: Many of his photos seem a bit old, perhaps because he had such a long break.
