  Troller: You should update this page. Høi became a GM in 2001 based on some rather old results around 1990. In retrospect, it turned out that at one point he had all norms and the required rating for the GM title.
Jan-16-10  sfm: Tillykke, Høi! Altid god til at sprede hygge omkring dig.
Jan-16-10  furrer: Også til lykke herfra!

  Morten: Happy birthday Høi.

Many interesting games to his name, but the Gulko game really made an impression. So hopefully he will bear with us for always bringing that up.
