  waustad: In any case, he has a busy chess schedule this Summer:
May-22-13  Neogy: <Benoni>

Laughing out loud!!! Good one! The puns on this site are bettered only by the breadth and depth of the chess (and that's a lot).

Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Happy b'day, 23 is one of those primes of life!
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: He's sole leader after 5 rounds in the Norwegian championship with 4.5/5.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: After draws on the last 2 days, he's clinched the Norwegian Championship. Congratulations on a fine result with 7/9 and a performance rating of 2658.
Aug-17-13  Bureaucrat: What a great World Cup for Jon Ludvig Hammer! He is through to the third round after defeating Movsesian and Navara. Well done! Kamsky next.
Aug-17-13  HeMateMe: It will take a large hammer to stop Dark Nolan.
Aug-17-13  Bureaucrat: I think Kamsky is too strong, but the short matches give some hope for the underdog. Go Hammer!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Appaz: Congratulations on the World Championship! Job well done, the 9th was a gem!

Now, go to Carlsen and get permission to confirm that you were the only second on-site in Chennai.

The members deserves to know first because we are such nice people (sometimes).

Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Congratulations on winning the Open section of the London Chess Classic with a 2723 performance rating. Well done.
Dec-16-13  Bureaucrat: Congratulations on winning in London. Well done, Jon Ludvig!
Jan-04-14  simsan: Jon Ludvig is now one game shy of adding a second straight tournament victory to his belt.

Rp after 8 rounds is 2845.

This guy is on fire!

Jan-04-14  Kazzak: The advantage of having been the conduit for Carlsen's WCC-prep and execution.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Shams: <Kazzak> I wonder if JLH has full leave to play any and all openings prepped for Carlsen's WCC match.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Congratulations to Jon Ludvig Hammer for winning the Rilton Cup (2013)! His score was 7.5/9 (+6,-0,=3). He placed half a point ahead Sergey Volkov, who finished alone in second. Their individual game was drawn: J L Hammer vs S Volkov, 2014.
Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: Hammer said that his match preparation with Carlsen absolutely inflluenced his recent success.

"Training with the best and for a prolonged period of time is very valuable. But sometimes it's tricky to make your training efforts shown in tournament play. I'm very happy with the way I've capitalized on the training."

  waustad: If Hammer, Agdestein and Carlsen are all in the kind of form we've seen recently, Norway A could be a threat at the olympiad.
Jan-10-14  Refused: <waustad: If Hammer, Agdestein and Carlsen are all in the kind of form we've seen recently, Norway A could be a threat at the olympiad.>

I don't think so. The gold contenders have at least two boards of 2.700+. It's tough to finish with a medal, if you play with 3 boards (who will be board 4?) and are most likely outmatched on 2 of the remaining 3 boards.

Carlsen can put up a good score, no doubt about it, but I think if the Russians put up a good team Hammer and Adgestein would face Svidler/Grischuk/Karjakin, and that might be a bit too much. And on board #4 the Russians will line up another strong GM. You can go down the list. Ukraine is also quite stacked, with guys like Korobov and Ponomariov potentially playing board 2 and 3. The Chinese can also field a super strong team.

The Norwegian only win something, if they put forward a performance similar to the Armenian teams winning gold. Means their Top Board performing extremely well (ok, that is quite possible) and their boards 2 to 4 really over performing, with no board being out of form.

Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: I didn't say I expected a gold, since the Russians, Chinese and Armenians, among others, are probably too deep. However Agdestein and Hammer have had several 2700+ performance ratings recently so they wouldn't be pushovers. It is true that the next 2 Norwegians would be around 2500 elo and the Russians can put up an all 2700+ team.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Happy b'day! It's hard to even remember being 24.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: Tomorrow he's on board 1 playing Aleksey Goganov in the final round of the Rilton Cup. He and Tiger Hillarp Persson are tied for the lead at +5. Persson is playing Erik Blomqvist on board 2. Both leaders will be playing black. Tomorrow's round starts at noon CET, which would be 6:00 AM EST, unless I've botched times yet again.
Premium Chessgames Member
  waustad: It appears he got the hardware, a gold medal: I don't know what they do about the cash, but Hammer and Tiger H P tied for first on points.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Congrats to Jon Ludvig Hammer for winning the EnterCard Scandinavian Masters (2015) and earning the right to play at the upcoming Norway chess tournament.

He managed to match top seed Fressinet stride-for-stride in the classical games, before beating Hansen in R6 to take a half point lead. He then beat Fressinet with black in their R7 game, before winning again in Round 8. Fressinet cut the lead from 1 1/2 to 1 in Round 9, but a 4 move draw (and a 52 move from Fressinet) ensured that Hammer would get another crack at Norway.

I'm pretty sure he definitely wants another try, as he was a punching bag back in 2013, recording 7 losses.

In the tournament, he gained exactly 12 rating points (2665.0 -> 2677.0) and 14 spots (76th to 62nd)

Jun-21-15  cplyakap: Poor Hammer.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Appaz: Poor no longer!

Hammer - Carlsen 1 - 0.

A mediocre result is turned to a good one.
