|Jun-10-10|| ||wordfunph: In his later years, GM Milan Matulovic still was applying his tricks, setting his clock back when he had overstepped the time limit and setting his opponent's clock ahead to make up for the lost time. It was not for the money, just cheating for the fun of it.|
happy birthday Milan!
|Jun-10-10|| ||mike1: I dont know him and never played any
tournament with him either. But I can say that I played a lot of tournaments with players from Yugoslavia (yes, at that time it was)
attending. Many of them were not educated; others were highly qualified. All of them were not able to make a living at their place.
After I saw some GMs (ok, not the superstars) sleeing on park benches
because they could not pay even the cheapest accomodation I knew that becoming a chess pro was certainly not
my thing (even though a lot of other
youn guns did precisely that!). Talking about the beginning-mid 80s.
|Jun-10-10|| ||KokeFischer: Hello:
I got puzzled by the position shown in the photo of Matulovic's biography...
May you help me the original game where the position was played, please?
Thanks and regards, JG
|Jun-10-10|| ||theodor: dear friends, I always like to do a comparison betwin history (politics) and a chessgame position, in which you dont see one or two pieces: that means - you cannot evaluate any position, without knowing every detail! I saw a movie a coupple of years ago, concerning the mid ninties in the former yougoslavia; an european unity of a douzain of cuirassed vehicules, supposed to deffend the local population, faces a situation, in which some 300 people are hyding in a cave, fearing a struggle
; the commanding oficer orders to let in the vehicules the refuges, then phones to the superiors reporting what's going on: the answer is astonishing!: ''withdraw immediatly, and let the refuges on the spot''! they execute the order and, after few hours, passing bay the spot, they see 300 corps, brutally assasinated! I let you the comment!|
|Jun-10-10|| ||tpstar: <KokeFischer> That position looks like it came from the French Defense, Fort Knox Variation (1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3/Nd2 dxe4 4. Nxe4 Bd7) with Black's lsb ending up on c6:|

Of course the first rank is a complete guess. =)
Matulovic only has one Fort Knox game here = D Ciric vs Matulovic, 1968 and he always met 3. Nc3 with 3 ... Bb4 instead of 3 ... dxe4. Therefore the picture is likely from a recent event (our age of digitized photography) where the specific game is not in our database.
|Jun-11-10|| ||gauer: <tpstar, KokeFischer> Probably the game is more likely to be D Milanovic vs Matulovic, 2001 - black's 14th - 1/2. Why? http://ratings.fide.com/id.phtml?ev... shows his FIDE rating in 2001 at 2420, as per the picture.|

" A man that will take back a move at chess will pick a pocket. "
|Jan-02-11|| ||wordfunph: funny but true.. :)
1971 Banja: According to Pal Benko, GM Milan Matulovic, who is well-known for his opening knowledge has said that it does not matter so much to him if he loses the game, as long as he won the battle of the opening!
|Oct-09-11|| ||brankat: I would take that with a grain (at least) of salt :-)|
|Jun-10-13|| ||brankat: Best wishes for Your Birthday!|
|Jun-10-13|| ||FSR: Surely the most beloved of all GMs.|
|Jun-11-13|| ||brankat: <FSR> With a possible exception of a future GM from Florida :-)|
|Jun-12-13|| ||FSR: <brankat> When hell freezes over. :-)|
|Jun-12-13|| ||perfidious: The one virtue of that coming off would be to give hope to we fifty-plus types.|
Time to pick up tonight's guaranteed Powerball winner; that will happen before the above-mentioned phenomenon.
|Oct-11-13|| ||Lovuschka: According to several sources (including people in Belgrade) Milan Matulović died recently, apparently also after battling for half a year with Parkinson's Disease. An obituary is published already or soon in Politika.|
