DANIEL STELLWAGEN
(born Mar-01-1987, 27 years old) Netherlands
PRONUNCIATION:
[what is this?]
DaniŽl Stellwagen was born in Soest in the Netherlands and became a Grandmaster in 2004 at the age of 18, the youngest Dutch GM until that time.

In 1999 he won the Dutch U12 Championship and then won silver at both at the World U12 Youth Championship and the European U12 Youth Championship. In 2003 he won the endgame study solving contest at the De Feijter Festival in Deventer with an unprecedented 100%. In 2005 and 2007, he took second place in the Dutch Championship and was leading the 2008 Dutch Championship by a half point with one round to play, but lost to Jan Smeets in the final round, enabling Smeets to win the crown. Since then, Stellwagen has been enrolled at the University of Utrecht, where he is studying for his PhD in inorganic chemistry and catalysis. He commented after his decision to "leave chess" that: "In chemistry, you also have the competitive element, because you have to publish your work, you have to come up with better ideas than other people, but you don't have to face and fight against somebody. This is what makes chess a difficult game."

Despite taking a step back from full time professional chess, Stellwagen has been active in the Bundesliga for the club SG Solingen, which finished third in 2012, missing out on the title by just 4 points.

May-04-06  AdrianP: Anyone watching this - I think Stellwagen's got some winning chances... v. interesting ending.
May-04-06  percyblakeney: It's beginning to look like a draw now.
May-04-06  AdrianP: <pb> Do you think? White may have to give up his rook for the d-pawn but get passed a and c-pawns supported by his king, question is can the rook stop them by itself?
May-04-06  AdrianP: Of course, my judgment may be influenced by the fact that I've got a modest bet on a Stellwagen win...!
May-04-06  percyblakeney: Hmm, tricky endgame indeed, maybe the rook can fix the draw with checks from behind...
May-04-06  percyblakeney: Maybe 48. ... d3 49. a6 Rf6+ and if Kb7 follows d2 and Rf7?!
May-04-06  AdrianP: <pb> Yep, maybe, but it's not so clear - the king can hide in front of the the c-pawn and advance slowly. So say there's a position with White pawns on a7 and c7 and king on b7, maybe White meet a check on the b-file with a8=N...?
May-04-06  AdrianP: Timman's gone into the think-tank...
May-04-06  percyblakeney: Good game by Stellwagen, but now Timman must have secured the draw at last...

Jan-24-09  kramputz: Biography of Daniel Stellwagen

Name: Daniel Stellwagen
Date of birth: 01-03-1987
Country: the Netherlands
World ranking: 211
Rating: 2573

Biography:
It seems that his full schedule at the university does not slow down the sympathetic grandmaster from Soest! In 2005, playing only a handful of tournaments and in a few Europeans leagues, Daniel managed to add a hefty 50 rating points to his climbing ELO. Hollandís youngest GM (and previously to that youngest IM, at 15) is a hard worker, uncompromisingly aggressive player who also has a penchant to the artistic side of chess composition.

Stellwagen has been playing since his mother introduced him to chess at age 7. His talent for the game quickly showed, and well before he was in pursuit of the highest titles he was recognized as someone to watch for Ė a prediction he has more than fulfilled. Last year here in Corus, he scored 50% - not a bad result considering the field maybe, but it might have been significantly higher if not for a bad flu and high fever he combatted in the second half of the event.

Earlier this year Daniel played two interesting matches against two of the most experienced Dutch GMís: Timman and van Wely. He split the match with Timman 1-1, and in the other - an Ďadvanced chessí match - he impressively won 3-1. Daniel recently finished in a very respectable 7th place at the 2005 world junior championships. Perhaps after that event and Corus í06, he will be touching a cool, round 2600 ELO?

  KingG: I don't think Stellwagen's done himself any favours in this tournament with his ultra-cautious play. I'd be surprised if he ever played in the A group again.
Apr-14-09  returnoftheking: He usually is far more agressive. And he is still considered Hollands top talent so if he chooses to become a prof and achieves no 1 spot he will be invited again for sure.
Sep-01-09  Troller: So he was invited again to Rising Stars vs Experience, and after a poor start he cam back to finish -1 overall. Not too bad. Does anyone know if he has plans of becoming a pro?
Sep-28-09  despantes: Stellwagen has stagnated somewhat for the past two years.
Nov-10-09  patzer2: The source of the biographical information, given above by <>Kramputz> is http://www.coruschess.com/participa...
May-30-11  Raspje: Daniel Stellwagen is very busy studying chemistry at the moment. Still an exceptional grandmaster.

  wordfunph: "I consider myself an amateur as regards to opening preparation. Everything is very concrete nowadays. The computer often gives unnatural moves which are correct, but sometimes hard to remember. You know a line is correct, but then your forget something and lose terribly."

- GM Daniel Stellwagen (in 2010)

happy birthday GM Stellwagen!
