Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: Bjørn Tiller was Born in Oslo in 1959 and his subject is philosophy. He is a member of Oslo Schakselskap, the largest chess club in Norway, and had a long break without competitive tournament chess in his chess carrier.

His primetime at the chess board was the early 80s when he was playing 1.board for Norway in the chess Olympics in Valletta in Malta 1980 with a strong 75% score over 8 games. He also participated in the Olympics in 1976. In 1982 he was awarded the International Master title (IM) and the same year he lost a tiebreak match with the young Simen Agdestein after shared victory at the Norwegian Championship. In 1983 it was time for Tiller, he then won his one and only Norwegian Championship. Tiller is an excellent blitz player known from his club in Oslo as a real shark. He qualified to Glitnir Blitz Norway 2007, a super strong blitz-tournament with Carlsen and Grischuk, by winning quite a strong field in the qualifications in Oslo.

Internationally Bjørn Tiller is probably best known in Great Britain where he plays for Wood Green 2 in the Four Nations Chess League (4NCL). He is also a frequent guest at the International open tournament in Davos, Switzerland, where he got two second places from the years 2003 and 2006.

Tiller is a typical positional player - playing in the spirit of the hyper-modernism with at least one fianchetto bishop. Anyway, he often opens his games with 1.e4, but typically he then chooses the closed Sicilian. Tiller has also quite a few ideas of his own already in the opening play.
