|Jan-27-12|| ||Penguincw: < "Sweden’s Hans Tikkanen was rewarded with the 100-euro daily prize in Group C for his fine win with white in 30 moves from a Slav Defense against India’s Sahaj Grover. The victory brought the Swede back alongside Russia’s Maxim Turov on top of the standings in this division of the tournament." >|
|Jan-28-12|| ||RichPeverley: Hes doing really good now after having a bad end of 2011, after winning the Swedish championship. He lost like 60 elo points from a high of 2602 to about 2540!. Hopefully he is back on track.|
|Feb-06-12|| ||Penguincw: Happy 27th birthday Hans Tikkanen.|
Too bad you were runner-up at Hans Tikkanen. But don't worry. You could get a chance in Group B next year, just like Illya Nyzhnyk did at Tata Steel (Group C) (2011).
|Feb-06-12|| ||wordfunph: Trivia: Hans Tikkanen scored his three GM norms in just two months.|
happy birthday GM Tikkanen..
|Jul-14-13|| ||waustad: Congratulations on winning the Swedish Championship! He came ahead of Nils Grandelius tiegreaks after both scored 6.5/9. It looks to me like he may have won in a playoff, but my Swedish leaves a lot to be desired: http://www.sm2013.schack.se/|
|Jul-14-13|| ||acirce: Indeed, he won in a playoff which went to Armageddon. Not the ideal way of deciding a national championship to say the least but yes. Tikkanen won for the third time in a row.|
|Nov-08-13|| ||waustad: His win today in his game against Eltaj Safarli gave Sweden a 2-2 tie with the higher rated Azeris in the ETCC.|
