Apr-19-09  soberknight: Guido den Broeder is active on "Wikipedia Review" (as am I). He claims to have played many notable chessplayers, including Timmerman, Nunn, Timman, Hort and Jeroen Piket. I knew him from the Wikipedia site; I would never have guessed he loved chess so much. Cool stuff!

Apr-19-09  AugustKamppur: I think I remember hearing about him. He's from New Jersey, right?
Apr-19-09  Gejewe: <AugustKamppur>
Guido den Broeder is a Dutchman, and I guess he is in his early 50ties now, but gave up competitive chess long ago. About 30 years ago he was doing quite well in the Dutch open, beating IM Hans Böhm and other strong players( also beating me, with 1.f4.. but I was rated under 2000 then definitely not belonging to that group ). Taking up correspondence chess he took 2nd place in the Dutch correspondence championship. In the 1980ties he wrote some chessbooks - on the Dutch correspondence championship, and on some big tournaments in the Netherlands (co-autored with Fred van der Vliet). Guido played for Rotterdam and he has played some notable chessplayers, that is for sure. In Nagykanisza 1990 I played Guido den Broeder, this was a kind of comeback tournament for him. But it was not a succes. He liked to analyse and search for the truth in the position but in tournament chess this approach can be unpractical and hurt your score. I did not see Guido again in any chess event after 1990, but it is good to hear that he is still fond of the game.
Apr-19-09  Guido den Broeder: Hi Gerard,

My chess career, like my professional career, was cut short when I fell ill with myalgic encephalomyelitis in 1987. The diagnosis arrived, unknown to me, during my stay in Hungary. In Nagykanisza I was on my way to the IM title, and possibly a GM result, when halfway through my energy was depleted. In the second half of the tournament, I didn't score another point. I tried one more time to secure the IM title, in the Donner Memorial of 1995. Again I was well on track, until I collapsed during round 8 and had to be rushed to the hospital.

It's a pity that only a few of my games have been entered into the database.

Sep-25-09  AugustKamppur: Guido, you are of course welcome to enter your own games into the database. I'm sorry to hear how your chess career was interrupted so unfortunately.

Best of luck in the future and I'm glad you are still fond of the game.

Sep-25-09  timhortons: <Guido den Broeder> you should send your picture so they could post it in your profile.

you played a lot of interesting and famous masters, i hope you could find time to upload your games.

Aug-06-14  zanzibar: <Guido den Broeder> is mentioned by name here:

<Wikipedia reveals Google 'forgotten' search links

Wikipedia has begun naming links to its online encyclopaedia that have been removed from EU search results under "right to be forgotten" rules.

The deleted links include pages about European criminals, a musician and an amateur chess player.


Dozens of Dutch-language pages that mention Guido den Broeder, a chess player from the Netherlands.>

Was that about some editing war in the past. I'm a little unclear why <den Broeder> was explicitly mentioned. >

Aug-06-14  Guido den Broeder: Way back in 2007, some people (highschool bullies and the like) didn't want to see a chess article about me. Wikipedia being what it is, this resulted in dozens of pages full of slander, that forever remained at the top all of google searches.

There are a zillion of similar cases, and finally we can do something about it.

  Domdaniel: <Guido den Broeder> Your reasons for wanting Wikipedia links removed are quite understandable. Unfortunately, at this early stage in the process, the removal is a news story - so you get mentioned along with (alleged) criminals from Italy and Ireland.

One trusts that the process will eventually become less newsworthy and more normal.

Aug-08-14  zanzibar: Thanks <Guido> for the reply.

Yes, being on the vanguard means your case drew the attention of the BBC. I think it's a little unfortunate that it did so, as your situation is quite different from some of the others they discussed.

It's too bad google doesn't have some more natural attenuation factor for flame wars and the like.

(I'm not familiar with your case, I'm just spouting off in general - but I can imagine that internet rubber-necking could artificially boost some links popularity - far beyond the merits of any the actual information content contained.)

It will be interesting to see how all this plays out in practice.
