Hey and hello! My name is Jon Ludvig Hammer and I am an international chess grandmaster hailing from the great chess nation to-be, Norway. As of January 2011, my official rating is 2647, which makes me the Norwegian #2, and ranked just below the world top 100.
A chessplayer’s life can hardly be described as normal, but traveling around the world, it being to exotic places like the southern coast of France or somewhat more frightful places like Siberia, often results in big adventures and many stories to share. And while I won’t share any novel opening discoveries I might come across, I can guarantee you there’ll be some chessic content – especially if I’m winning!
