Nordic Chess Activities
A quite small KWA meeting took place last weekend (20/09/2009) in the Norwegian town of Fredrikstad, four of our members were present: Øystein Brekke, Calle Erlandsson, Ole Kristian Førrisdahl and Gunnar Finnlaugsson. The latter currently participates in the Nordic Senior Championship, just see www.sjakk.net/nordisk-2009/ (the four top boards are broadcasted live). Anyhow Gunnar managed to start excellently with 3.5/4 and he is still very well placed (4.5/6); the game against the leading Finnish chess legend Heikki Westerinen in round 6 (24/09/09) ended in a draw.
On September 10th our members Per Skjoldager and Jørn Erik B. Nielsen had a great Nimzowitsch performance at the Copenhagen Brønshøj Chess Club. The considerable number of 50 visitors (instead of the 15 to 20 expected) speaks well for a remarkable interest in chess history and Nimzowitsch in Denmark. Together with Gunnar Finnlaugsson and Calle Erlandsson also four KWA members attended this event.
