Kibitzer's Corner
< Earlier Kibitzing  · PAGE 24 OF 24 ·  Later Kibitzing>
Dec-29-15  rogge: Great, congrats!!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Appaz: At the moment he is number 45 in the world and the worlds worst super GM. I have to check if that gives bragging rights...hmm, yes it does.
Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: I guess it's time to get those baggy pants out of the basement. Hammertime!

  tamar: thanks for the correct sequence notyetagm. I forgot my 25 year old prep.
Dec-29-15  Rolfo: A new member of the gang! Congrats
Premium Chessgames Member
  Appaz: At the moment, Norway is equal in number of super GMs to Armenia. We could have a decent national team, had it not been for our weak first table.
Dec-29-15  waustad: Congratulations on crossing the 2700 live mark!!
Dec-29-15  Shams: Didn't Carlsen once say (when asked) that he thought Hammer had very little chance of ever breaking 2700?
Dec-29-15  epistle: before you can have a chance of breaking something you must first have it.
Dec-30-15  Oxnard: Nice going Hammer! Is he full time on chess now? A few years ago I thought he was seeking a career in economics, but between breaking the 2700 barrier, commentating on Norwegian TV, and helping Carlsen, perhaps he's focusing on chess at the moment?
Dec-30-15  mucher1: Perhaps young Tari will also join the club in a few years. How I miss the old days when Denmark dominated Norway in everything except fjords and skiing.

MC Hammer - U Can't Touch This

Jan-02-16  Oxnard: Hammer today proved why he's the world's greatest chess prodigy by overtaking Wei Yi on the live ratings at 2706.4!
Jan-02-16  rogge: Very convincing game today against Krasenkow.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Appaz: Very convincing with the black pieces. Krasenkow didn't make any big blunders it seems, he was simply outplayed in a slightly worse position after Hammers pawn sac 16..e5.
Premium Chessgames Member
  cro777: Jon Ludvig Hammer: "Possibly the best game I've ever played. Creativity, aggression, alertness, beauty, endgame accuracy. It had it all."

M Krasenkow vs J L Hammer, 2016

Premium Chessgames Member
  Jambow: Hammer on the 2700 live list a first?
Congrats Jon Ludvig nice way to bring in the new year!!!
Jan-05-16  aliasniamor: With Tari 2556 while 16 yo, that's already 3 players (with J-L Hammer and youknowwho) out of 4 for a very nice Norway team. Looking forward to seeing Carlsen play up to his rank in the next team events !
Jun-02-16  waustad: Happy b'day!
Aug-25-17  Dr Winston OBoogie: Tipsy has posted 7 links - yes I said 7 - in the last few days like you Norwegians have done something wrong on here. I see <nothing wrong> with anything any Norwegian has posted, or English, or Filipino, or Russian, or Ukrainian, or any other nationality other than Americans.

  Appaz: <tipsy> boils over now and then, usually triggered by some confronting posts from the usual suspects up front.

Well this time he's just hit the home run of posts! His forum is now "a crime scene" which he was forced to close on the advice of the Michigan State police LOL. Doctors lost his marbles.
