Øystein Brekke

Our member Østein Brekke is at home in the fascinating country of the trolls which - thanks to Magnus Carlsen - experiences a pleasing upswing in chess. His comprehensive biography of Svein Johannessen (1937-2007) is devoted to the formerly strongest Norwegian chess player (IM 1961) who crossed blades with many grandmasters of his time. Numerous annotated games are included in the book which unfortunately has been published in Norwegian only. The author gives a more detailed description of his work in this announcement.
