|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 |

|Apr-20-10|| ||wordfunph: Happy 45th Birthday Lars!|
|Apr-20-11|| ||DarthStapler: 420 Birthday, he must smoke weed a lot|
|Dec-26-11|| ||GrahamClayton: Author of "Playing the Queen's Gambit:
A Grandmaster Guide" in 2009 and "The Caro-Kann" in 2010.
|Jan-02-12|| ||acmilan03c1: Lars Schandorff Madsen is the full name:
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lars_S... and also http://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skakkl...
|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.|
