There is a pocket book <Skandinavisk> writen by
von Niels Jorgen Fries Nielsen
88 pages, publisher: Skakcentralens (1982)
Maybe his brother?
|Feb-02-09|| ||sagahelten: You're right! The book <Skandinavisk> (Danish, 1982) is by Niels Jørgen Fries Nielsen! It was SO long ago I looked into it the last time. Jens Ove is IM (Elo 2403), Niels Jørgen has 2393. If they are brother, they have very much the same strength. Interesting... Niels Jørgen is the leader of Helsinge Chess Club, one of the best in Denmark.|
|Feb-02-09|| ||sagahelten: Well, I looked into the book, and Niels Jørgen lived in Esbjerg in 1981, which means that they come from the same city. I guess we can assume that they are brothers.|
|Feb-02-09|| ||sagahelten: Niels Jørgen is only two years older (b. 1958)|
|Feb-02-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Oven Fries Nielsen (ouch!)|
|Feb-02-12|| ||Penguincw: < ...he finished 1st= in the Danish Championship of 1982 but lost the play-off. >|
To who? Bent Larsen?
|May-15-12|| ||Troller: In 1982 Jens Kristiansen was Danish champion.|
Indeed the 2 Fries Nielsens are brothers. The city of Esbjerg hosted a string of strong tournaments (Vesterhavsturneringen, "The West Sea Tournament") starting in the late 1970s. The game J O Fries Nielsen vs Short, 1984 is from the event in which Nigel earned his final grandmaster norm.

27.R:f5!! g:f5 28.Sf4 Rh8 29.Rg1 Kf6 30.Ke3 Rae8+ 31.Kd3 Re7? 32.Sge6! Rh6 33.Sd8! Sb8?? 34.Rg6+! with a study-like checkmate to follow, so Black gave up. 1-0
A study-like draw would have been 33.-Rg7 34.Re1 Re7 35.Rg1 Rg7, etc.
Variation of the game (after the moves 34.-R:g6 35.S:h5 mate):

|May-19-14|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: Congrats to Jens Ove on winning the Copenhagen Chess Challenge 2014. He also scored his 2nd GM norm.|
Danish Chess Federation (DSU) news link below
|Jul-23-14|| ||Penguincw: Today, with black, Nielsen upset Jan Timman (rated 212 points higher) with the black pieces! With that, he is now 4/4, one of 7 players to remain 4/4.|
Timman vs J O Fries Nielsen, 2014
By my unofficial calculation, he's gained 12.3 rating points so far. Early bid for 3rd GM norm?
Tomorrow, he has white against Super GM Alexander Moiseenko, rated 2707. A win will gain him 8.5 points, draw 3.5 and loss drops him 1.5 points.
