Jul-28-15  BIDMONFA: Johan Salomon


Jul-24-16  Eastfrisian: He is Norwegian Champion 2016 dand his name in the short Bio is wrong.

  Penguincw: IM Johan Salomon does well at the SS Manhem Chess Week tournament, scoring 6.5/9, getting edged by GM Eduardas Rozentalis 26.25-26.

However, he does have a TPR of 2630, and gained 19 rating points (up to 2489), so that looks like another GM norm.
