  Benzol: Congratulations Peter. :) An impressive performance.
Apr-07-12  MarkFinan: Are you the lad that makes YouTube vids on your own games?

If so, and please don't take this the wrong way because i like them and iv'e watched many, but why out of all them hundreds of video's have you never posted one single loss???

You can obviously play, you're a better player than me, but i thought you can learn as much from your losses as you can from your wins?

Maybe i'm missing something, but iv'e always wandered why you never annotate a game you've lost!!

Peace out either way, Mr Lalic :)

Apr-08-12  MarkFinan: One more thing Peter.

A few months ago i was talking to someone on this site (I will find out his name!) and he had a brother who has games in this database, but sadly his brother died quite young..

He told me he'd lost some game scores of his brother's, and one of them was a game/win against Bogdan Lalic, who it appears is your father..

So i wandered if you have all your father's old games? As i think it would be a nice thing if you could dig out this particular game, against this particular player, and post the pgn here for this guy's brother?

I'll wait for you to answer this first before i go back through my posting history and find out this bloke's name.. I remember at the time thinking the guy seemed genuinely upset, so it would be a really nice thing to do if you could? I realise i'm being vague, but i need to know if you have all your father's games first?

I do remember the guy telling me the game was played in Surrey/Sussex..

Apr-19-12  PeterLalic: Hi, Mark!
Thanks for watching my videos. Of course losses are important for chess improvement, and I always put my games on the computer afterwards, in order to analyze my mistakes and search for a better opening variation. I don't put so many losses on (about 10 or so), simply because it takes motivation to talk for 15 minutes on a game. If I'm not proud of that one, especially if it was painful, I'd rather just look at it for myself. I don't know if my father keeps all his games. If this game you're talking about was played in a big tournament, it should be in the databases. If not, you could tell my father the player's name.
Apr-19-12  MarkFinan: Hi Peter, thanks for your reply mate.. I know 100% the guy's second name was "Benjamin", but no relation to American GM Joel Benjamin...

Let me have a good look, I'll find his full name, It shouldn't take too long..

I guess I should say, "Good luck with your chess" now lol :)

Aug-10-13  kellmano: Alright Peter. I've just stumbled across your videos and they are good. Shame you stopped making them. If you do decide to restart, as I think you should, I'd recommend making more use of your humour. It is wry.

Also, have you noticed what an optimist you are (at least re chess)? A good quality I think.

Aug-27-13  MarkFinan: Kellmano.. I used to like watching this lads videos too, but I really would have liked him to go through some of his losses too, however painful, otherwise he could be accused of having what I like to call "The Life Master syndrome"!

He seems a nice guy though, not sure about his choice of mucic though! :)

Aug-27-13  MarkFinan: Oh, before I forget, next time you visit CeeGee will you let me know how you're currently doing with your chess, tourny wins, losses etc..and what your current BCF rating Is please? I had such a long break from chess (Im 38 now, but I played for Yorkshire when I was 10.) and yours and Kingcrushers were the first videos on chess I started watching when I got the chess bug again, so In a strange way I feel like I know you because Iv'e watched them all a few times now..

Good luck with your chess Mr Lalic ;)

Sep-28-13  Martin Benjamin: Mark - thanks for your comments. In reply, my older brother's name was Jon Benjamin and the game he won v Bogdan Lalic was at the Sutton Easter congress in the late eighties/early nineties. The reason it stuck in my mind was despite arriving 40 minutes late, Jon played a cracking tactical game which he typically and modestly shrugged off as "one of those games when the tactics worked". It would be nice to see the game again, but it is not important enough to go bothering Bogdan (and I doubt he would have kept a copy anyway.

By chance, I played a league match v Peter Lalic in May this year, and I lost on time when I was two rooks up and a few moves away from delivering mate. Sums up a lot of my chess over the years!

Oct-13-13  MarkFinan: Hi Martin! Hope you're well mate, I couldn't remember your first name, or even where we'd had the conversation about your brother, so I was asking Peter some very vague questions! So, if you've played Peter, did you get the chance to ask him about your brothers game against his dad?

Glad to see you back here and great to hear you're still playing at a decent level.

  whiteshark: <Play the Accelerated Dragon> written by Peter Lalić

The Accelerated Dragon remains one of Blackís most popular choices in the Sicilian, and the attractions are obvious. Blackís opening strategy is easy to understand, and his pieces are quickly developed on active squares. Furthermore, White players hoping to attack in the same way as against the traditional Dragon will be shocked by the Accelerated Dragonís greater flexibility and possibilities for a swift counterattack.

In this book, Peter Lalić presents a repertoire for Black based on this line. He outlines a reliable system of development with the aim of choosing clear, consistent plans. Firstly, he demonstrates why the Accelerated Dragon exponent need not fear the Yugoslav Attack. Secondly, if White chooses instead the positional Maroczy Bind approach he emphasizes that positional understanding is far more important than memorization of move sequences. He studies the thematic middlegame and endgame positions which may arise and answers all the frequently asked questions. This book tells you everything you need to know to play the Accelerated Dragon with confidence.

* An Accelerated Dragon repertoire

* Packed with new ideas and critical analysis

* Covers Black's key tactics and strategies
