  paavoh: Many of his 30-or-so move losses to notable opponents are probably due to exceeding the time limit?!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Stonehenge: <Benzol> Did he win the CC Championship? He certainly didn't win the OTB Championship.

  Benzol: <Stonehenge> Ken Whyld in "Guiness Chess The Records" has him listed as the winner of the 1984 Finnish Ch held in Helsinki. Normally Ken Whyld is pretty reliable. Do you have other info?
Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: Is this reliable?

Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: This link was at the bottom:

It shows his 3rd place in 1982, but no win in 1984.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <TheFocus> Well that blows it wide open. Looks like Ken Whyld might be mistaken and as a result so am I.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Stonehenge: Thanks guys :)

<Benzol> I'm not so sure that Ken Whyld chap is so reliable. I have found quite a few mistakes so far.

  GrahamClayton: Binham is a very un-Finnish sounding surname. Were his parents originally not from Finland?
