L.Karlsson became the second swede to recieve a lifelong support from the swedish state.Ulf Andersson was first.
|Jul-11-09|| ||brankat: The first of L.Karlsson's games listed above doesn't belong there. He was only 2 years old at the time. This is from the game page: |
<Mar-29-05 <tuatara>: this game was not played by any Karlsson but by hans karl, then of Heilbronn.>
|Jul-11-09|| ||wordfunph: Happy Birthday Olympian GM Lars Karlsson..|
|Jul-11-09|| ||Eastfrisian: .. an from Germany, too.|
|Jul-11-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Happy birthday|
|Jul-11-10|| ||wordfunph: his ICC handle is "Frasse"..
happy birthday Frasse!
|Jul-11-14|| ||Penguincw: Happy 59th birthday to GM Lars Karlsson.|
|Oct-29-15|| ||MissScarlett: <In the late 1970s Karlsson, with astonishing blitz skills looked like a superstar in the making. However a near-death experience in a plane going to a tournament in the USSR caused Karlsson to foreswear air travel, going to all future tournaments by train or boat.|
His career was seriously restricted but even so he briefly became a top 30 Grandmaster. However family life, including being a parent for a total of seven children, obliged him to leave the professional circuit.
In recent years Karlsson has restricted himself to competing in Sweden but he made his international return on the Chess Train tournament.>
|Jul-11-17|| ||Tabanus: <brankat: The first of L.Karlsson's games listed above doesn't belong there. He was only 2 years old at the time.> That's been fixed, but it remains a lot of work to separate the -son's from each other. And the -sen's too. I will probably make an effort to take the worst.|
