Oct-27-04  fasting: I do think OfstadsĀ“ winning against Uhlmann should be in his "best games"!
Apr-20-08  rozumim: I second fasting's comment: I just looked at P Ofstad vs Uhlmann 1963 and my jaw is still still on the floor. This game should definitely be listed as "notable."

Aug-10-13  wordfunph: GM Lubosh Kavalek on Per Ofstad..

<If there ever was a chess troll, surprising players when they least expected it, it must have been Per Ofstad. The 1961 champion of Norway claimed many victims with his flamboyant style. He looked serious, sometimes sad, when there was nothing to sacrifice. But give him active pieces and his mood would change immediately.>
