Icelandic league

Won my game again this morning but the opponent was much lower rated and I had white. In the final round we will play against the top team and we need to win 5,5-2,5 to get the title. That will be very difficult but doable even though they have rating advantage on most boards.

I will most likely play against retired GM Jon Arnason, former world junior champion in 1977 (the year I was born)....ahead of Short and a certain young little Gary Kasparov!!

So will be tough obviously but I and we will do our best.


  1. Never retreat... never surrender... :-) I was 1 year old..time is passing so fast these years lol
    Please, my apologies if I'm wrong, or he was World Cadet champion ( under 16 ) instead world Junior champion?

  2. Yes, that's the correct term, it was U-16 World Champion!
