  Honza Cervenka: Ingrid Larsen
Oct-20-04  fasting: Is this Bents mother? LOL
Dec-03-06  Karpova: Beth Cassidy:
<Then there was that Ingrid Larsen, of Denmark. I watched her win one really good game. Her approach was very subtle. She just lit a cigar! Her poor opponent, smelling the smoke, felt she must at least be playing a grandmaster, began to get nervous and resigned a few moves later, completely demoralised.>

  GrahamClayton: No other player, either male or female has won 17 national championships. The nearest is the 16 New Zealand championships won by Ortvin Sarapu.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: <GrahamClayton> Ortvin Sarapu got his name on the New Zealand Championship trophy ( a giant silver rook seen in the background of the picture in his player profile ) some 20 times, either individually or shared.

See for more info.

Jul-01-09  Dredge Rivers: <WhiteRook48> <Larsen is a common Danish name> Yes, but that doesn't answer <WannaBe>'s question. Is she related to Bent Larsen?

Try to focus! :)

  FSR: When I saw her name, I thought that she had introduced the TN 4.Bxa6?? in the Ruy Lopez - but no, that was another Danish woman: M Olsen vs B Tilenbaev, 2004.
