  Tabanus: The 2008 Olympiad was a huge success for Silje Bjerke. She scored 6.5 out of 9 and made her final WIM-norm. With a FIDE rating of 2219 she was recently awarded the WIM-title. Despite being only 26 years old, she has played many Olympiads for Norway, and she is one of the most experienced female players in Norway. Although she has a Masterís degree in North American studies, Silje has decided to work full time with chess. Together with IM Torstein Bae and myself she has started the company Sjakkhuset (The Chess House) which will have its grand opening in August. She represents the chess club SK 1911 in Oslo.

Silje has been playing chess since she was very young. Not many years ago she changed her style radically. She used to play cautiously with safe openings, but now she is a more ambitious player. She is constantly improving her play and she works a lot to get better. Today she is a strong player who plays aggressively and calculates well.

  Nightsurfer: <Silje Bjerke> will be the first Scandinavian female player who - on November 28th, 2013 - will compete in the rapid chess tournament <"International Ladies Chess Gala"> that is organized each year by the German daily <"neues deutschland"> since 2006.

Plus: During this year's <"8th International Ladies Chess Gala"> there will be one more premiere that will be realized by <Silje Bjerke>: the 31-years-old WIM from Oslo will play an exhibition game of <"Hnefatafl">, the ancient chess of the Vikings that has been very popular in Northern Europe between the 11th and 13th century (more information about <"Hnefatafl">: ).

<Silje Bjerke> talks about all that - her premiere at the <"International Ladies Chess Gala 2013">, the current chess boom that has been triggered by Magnus Carlsen 's triumph at the World Championship 2013 and her exhibition game in <"Hnefatafl"> - on the occasion of an interview that she has granted to German author Rene Gralla . The English version of that interview can be read after turning to the link as follows: !
