|May-15-15|| ||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.|
|Jun-25-15|| ||Appaz: Poor no longer!
Hammer - Carlsen 1 - 0.
A mediocre result is turned to a good one.
|Dec-29-15|| ||Appaz: Congratulations to Hammer for his 2700.1 on the live ratings, after a spectacular win over GM Erik Blomquist (2493) in Rilton today.|
Cool, now I can use the phrase "our super GMs"!
|Dec-29-15|| ||rogge: Great, congrats!!|
|Dec-29-15|| ||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.|
|Dec-29-15|| ||tamar: I guess it's time to get those baggy pants out of the basement. Hammertime!|

|Dec-29-15|| ||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|
|Dec-29-15|| ||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.|
|Dec-31-15|| ||notyetagm: <tamar: thanks for the correct sequence notyetagm. I forgot my 25 year old prep.>|
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.|
|Jan-02-16|| ||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.|
|Jan-03-16|| ||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
|Jan-05-16|| ||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!|
