Danish champion in 1937, 1938, 1949 and 1950.

Bjorn Nielsen died before the 1949 play-off match could be played.
The result of the 1950 championship was decided by a coin toss between Hage and Jens Enevoldsen.

I've been on so many threads on this website I'm begining to feel as disjointed as Wire In The Blood's Dr Tony Hill.

|Oct-04-12|| ||sfm: Paul Hage was a very pleasant person indeed.
I once played him in a rapid-chess tournament. A couple of days later, Larsen commented the game in Extra Bladet ("The Extra Magazine"), saying "If Paul Hage would like to score lots of easy points, he should not publish this game. It is an example of how fast White can lose by making 'natural moves'".
This must have been in 1979 or so. RIP, Sir, and thanks for the lesson.

|Mar-16-16|| ||TheFocus: I wonder if his friends called him The Hage?|
|Sep-05-17|| ||Arconax: Mr.Focus, His name means "chin" in Danish. Your humour is a bit meddlesome.|
Poul Hage won several Danish Championships both before and after WW2. A creative player.
