Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-11-05  Saruman: Umeå is my hometown.
Dec-11-05  Averageguy: Ar du Svensk?
Dec-11-05  Saruman: Såklart.
Dec-11-05  acirce: <Saruman> Är du tillbaka i Umeå nu?

  chancho: I'm taking a wild guess that this is the conversation you guys had. <Averageguy>: Are you swedish? <Saruman>: Of course. <acirce>: In what part of town do you live in? Like I said, I'm only guessing, so if I'm wrong, just know I don't speak swedish. :-)
Dec-11-05  Averageguy: <Chancho> Almost, <acirce> meant "Are you back in Umea now?".
Dec-11-05  Saruman: Ja, jag är tillbaka men har gjort ett litet uppehåll nu under gymnasiet precis som Mikael Forsberg gjorde om jag inte minns fel.

  Eric Schiller: Mad Dog" Renman takes a fall

In a rush to get to the 1984 Berlin Summer Open, Nils Gustav "Mad dog" Renman found himself on a train headed in the wrong direction, and had to get back to Stockholm to catch a train which would bring him to Berlin in time for the event. Unfortunately, the train had no scheduled stops which would help. He decided there was no alternative to leaping from the moving train, with all his luggage in hand. A good plan, but the execution was a bit lacking and he turned up in Berlin a few days later with a broken arm!

Dec-11-05  dakgootje: <Eric Schiller> Yup brilliant idea...However he has a good story to tell to his children ;-)
Dec-11-05  aw1988: That's really hysterical. Well, not to laugh at other people, but it's almost cartoonish.
Dec-18-08  brankat: Happy Birthday Nils-Gustaf!
Dec-18-08  zzzzzzzzzzzz: i'm not sure if he is still alive, he could of died seconds ago...
Dec-18-08  zzzzzzzzzzzz: he must be stronger than capablanca, as Alekhine got defeated by him and Alekhine defeated capa... Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1927 0-1
Dec-18-08  Ziggurat: His last name means "Reindeer man" (or "clean man"), so maybe he's a distant relative of Dimitri Reinderman :-)
Dec-18-08  pelle1953: Nisse is the only IM with negative statistics against me. Mad Dog Renman deserves his own forum.
Do you know if he has a blog about his mishaps?

Dec-18-08  alfiepa: the most important tournament for Renman was the fist prize in Reggio emilia 1980
Dec-18-08  alfiepa: this is the tournament...
Dec-18-08  alfiepa: in this site there is also a recent photo of Renman and the games . The games are not in this database
