  Count Wedgemore: This talented young man just had a very good result in this year's Norwegian Championship, where he took 3rd place behind Hammer and Tari after an impressive 6/9 performance. Well done, Benjamin!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Count Wedgemore: Yesterday in the 3rd round of the Gibraltar Masters he drew his game (with Black!) against the strong US Grandmaster Akobian. An excellent result against a player rated almost 200 pts higher.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: <Count W> You mean the Norwegian Championship (2018)? It's just because CG always remembered not to call him B. Haldorsen ;)

Hmm, I wonder about his rating curve. He plays fewer games than many others.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Count Wedgemore: <Tabanus> The comment I made about Benjamin's 3rd place finish was from July last year, so of course I meant NM 2018 :=

Yes, he hasn't played so much lately. But it's great that he's playing Gibraltar, and doing really well so far!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: He's from Bergen? He did not play in Norwegian Championship (2016), survived the Norwegian Championship (2017), and improved a lot last year.

CW, please add Norwegian Ch's 1918-2015 to CG database ;)

Premium Chessgames Member
  Count Wedgemore: <Tabanus> Yes, he is from Bergen. I also know he is a great blitz and rapid player. If I'm not mistaken, he won "NM i Hurtigsjakk" last year.

<CW, please add Norwegian Ch's 1918-2015 to CG database ;)>

Sounds like a massive undertaking, <Tab>! Why haven't you done it already :=

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: I've been waiting for Oystein Brekke to do it, but nothing yet :)
