|Jul-25-09|| ||pdwaj: This biog and game history has 2 Bjorn Nielsens doesn't it? The one who played Nimzowitsch wasn't alive to play the games in 2009!|
|Oct-04-09|| ||BIDMONFA: Bjorn Nielsen|
|Oct-04-09|| ||Tabanus: The games from Politiken Cup 2009 are by Bjørn Nielsen from Copenhagen, then rated 1056|
On the other hand Bjorn Nielson is same player, with the game Alekhine vs B Nielson, 1941 (0-1) from Munich 8-14 September 1941. The tournament was won by Gosta Stoltz ahead of Erik Ruben Lundin and Alekhine, Bogoljubow, Bjørn Nielsen, Kurt Richter, Foltys, etc.
There is a book in Danish by Alfred Christensen: Mindebogen om Bjørn Nielsen, 187 pp., Ålborg 1949
Bjørn Nielsen is author of the book Aron Nimzowitsch, Danmarks skaklærer, 444 pp., Dansk Skakforlag, Ålborg 1945. It contains 100 games with Nimzowitsch's own annotations. I don't know if it's been translated to English.
|Oct-04-09|| ||whiteshark: Here is a picture with BjÃ¸rn Nielsen from the Mesterturnering 1947:
http://www.enpassant.dk/chess/ep/ju... I think he's playing on the left, <Munk Vest> sitting on the right. (Could be the reverse, too)|

|Oct-04-09|| ||Tabanus: In 1947 he lost a radio match game to Einar Haave, Norway (who later was Norwegian champion, in 1954). He did a book on the match http://openlibrary.org/b/OL6141989M... (31 pages only), see also Norges Sjakkforbunds Skrifter No. 1, Oslo 1947|
|Oct-04-09|| ||Tabanus: Apparently the radio match had double rounds. As chesslive.de has |

I suppose the other game went 0-1 in Haave's favor.
|Oct-05-09|| ||Phony Benoni: <whiteshark> Nielsen may be playing Black in that photo. The opening looks like a standard Closed Spanish (black pawns on a6/b5, White bishop on b3). According to the game list, Nielsen played the Black side of that opening and was generally a d-pawn player with White.|
|Oct-05-09|| ||Poulsen: <Phony Benoni><Nielsen may be playing Black in that photo> No, it's Bjørn Nielsen playing white, allright.|
Bjørn Nielsen could at some point not use his legs due to a bleeding disorder - an illness that later caused his early death. His first name translates into "bear" - not an uncommon name in danish (and norwegian). He was often called "bjørnen" - "the bear".
As mentioned by <Tabanus> he won a game against Alexander Alekhine - the only dane, that ever did that.
|Oct-05-09|| ||gus inn: <Phony Benoni> I my eyes dont betray me,
black has a pawnformation od c6,b5,a6.So a Qeensgambit is more likely,as they quite frequently played at that time.|
|Oct-05-09|| ||Phony Benoni: <Poulsen> <gus inn> Thanks for the information. It was clearly some unwarranted speculation on my part.|
|Jun-05-10|| ||DoneMac: The games by the "2009 B Nielsen" should be removed from this former Champion's page - it is a really poor miss by the DB admin|

|Oct-04-15|| ||rgr459: If he had a bleeding disorder, it may have been hemophilia - in severe cases, this is associated with spontaneous bleeding into joints and can cause degeneration and functional impairment over time.|
|Jan-29-16|| ||Chess Is More: Strong, defensive player. But when Jews were rounded up all over Europe, this fellow enjoyed his chess playing and beating the great Alekhine in Munich 1941. The nice kibitzer <Sokrates> will know more, he wrote once that he is Danish.|
|Oct-04-16|| ||Nosnibor: He authored two other books not mentioned in the bio. These were Kan De Kombinere and Kongeangrebet. They dealt with combinations and the last one in particular with methods of attack against the King. R.I.P. Master Nielsen.|
