Bent Larsen - Danish grandmaster

Jørgen Bent Larsen was born in March 4th, 1935, at the small Danish city of Tilsted, located in the northwest part of the country. During his childhood, due to a very fragile health, he spent most of his time at home. This is probably the reason why Larsen had his first contact with chess.

He became known for his attacking style of play which earned him the titles of International Master at the age of 19 and Grandmaster two years later.
