  Tabanus: FM Frode 0-0 Urkedal, Norway, born 1993. One of the many Norwegian promising juniors inspired by GM Magnus Carlsen.


Aug-30-09  Knight13: Apparently not promising enough...


Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: WYCC 2009 (U16): Draw yesterday against IM Santosh Gujrathi Vidit (IND 2459),

and 5/6 so far. Not bad!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Now 2420,

and 2nd place yesterday in Knut Bøckman Cup (Norway):

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: 1st yesterday in the so-called "ASKO Pinse" tournament (Oslo Norway) 22-24 May 2010:

  Tabanus: The Norwegian championships started two days ago (with a double round today). Our man is doing well so far:


Jan-04-14  DiscoJew: Friends with Bilbo Baggins. Has slewn Orcs. Can take you to the Ring.
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: Frodo today is 21. His great pilgrimage is beginning.
May-14-14  waustad: Happy b'day! I can't really remember that well what 21 was like being over triple that age, but I recall going into the liquor store and buying a bottle of whiskey on my b'day (perhaps Black Velvet, but I'm not sure). That was the only time over several years that they didn't ask for proof of age.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: He was on <Family Matters>, right?
May-14-14  Appaz: No doubt the most important thing being 21 years old in Norway is that you can buy spirit.

Happy birthday, Frode!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Finally a GM, congrats!

Apr-05-16  Interbond: Appaz, you only need to be 20 to buy spirit.
May-03-16  BIDMONFA: Frode Olav Olsen Urkedal


May-04-16  Appaz: Ha-ha, you are right, <Interbond>. Too many years has passed since that law was relevant for me, so I had forgot :)
May-04-16  Appaz: Btw, Urkedal is currently playing in After beating three lower rated opponents he also managed to beat Krishnan Sasikiran (2643) with black.

Today he will have the white pieces against Dimitry Andreikin (2736).
