Kibitzer's Corner
May-19-04  Poulsen: Danish GM, former danish Ch, has a pretty solid playing style, making him rather difficult to beat. However, he's isn't playing much - which sometimes makes him vulnerable to well prepared opponents. Plays primarily teamchess - has done well in the german Bundesliga for serveral years. He's born in 1965 - and still able to stay in top 10 of danish chessplayers. Typical win: first he's put under some pressure, then he turns the table J Gdanski vs L Schandorff, 2001

Jan-02-12  acmilan03c1: Lars Schandorff Madsen is the full name: and also
Aug-04-12  wordfunph: another book by GM Schandorff --- Playing 1.d4, The Queen's Gambit

Aug-04-12  SimonWebbsTiger: @<wordfunph>

not quite a new book. It is the second edition of "playing the Queen's Gambit".

I saw Lars the other day and asked him what changes there are. One is "It's up to date" (LS). It's the same repertoire he suggested in the first edition.

Aug-30-12  brankat: Good morning Mr.Lars Schandorf!
Jan-17-13  Rravshan: <Poulsen> the game you mensioned is very nice, i should analyze it.
Jan-17-13  Abdel Irada: <DarthStapler: 420 Birthday, he must smoke weed a lot>

Unfortunately, this also means he shares a birthday with Adolf Hitler — a buzzkill if ever there was one.

Apr-20-13  Everett: He promotes, roughly, Botvinnik's queen's gambit approach in his book. Systematic and interesting.
Apr-20-13  TheTamale: Oh, Schanandorff, I long to hear you
Away, you rollin' river...
Mar-21-15  Karposian: Schandorff is a very solid player with a defensive, positional playing style. Good endgame player also.
