Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-20-05  WTHarvey: Lalic was originally a Yugoslav GM. FIDE says he now plays for England. Chessmetrics.com has him peaking at #90 in the world in 1997.

Here are critical positions from some of his games not shown here: http://www.wtharvey.com/lali.html

Mar-08-06  alicefujimori: I quite liked Lalic's, "The Grunfeld for the Attacking Player." It demonstrated some of the themes and ideas behind many Grunfeld lines quite well. Especially when there aren't that many Grunfeld books out there.
Jun-02-08  stanleys: My game against GM Lalic in a rapid tournament last month:

Lalic (2514) - stanleys (2240)

1.c4 Nf6 2.Nf3 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.d4 0-0 6.Be2 e5 7.Be3 Na6 8.0-0 Ng4 9.Bg5 f6 10.Bc1 Kh8 11.a3 c6 12.b4 Nc7 13.Ra2 f5 14.h3 ed4 15.Nxd4 Nh6 16.ef5 Nxf5 17.Nxf5 Bxf5 18.Bb2 Qg5 19.Qc1 Qh4 20.Nd1 Rae8 21.Bxg7+ Kxg7 22.Qc3+ Qf6 23.Qxf6+ Kxf6 24.Ne3 Be6 25.Rd2 d5 26.cd5 Nxd5 1/2 - 1/2

  wordfunph: excerpt from the book Smart Chip from St. Petersburg by GM Genna Sosonko..

In one of the rounds of the Leningrad Spartakiad of 1967 I was playing on the board next to Chepukaitis. During his game with Ruban, Chip kept going out to the foyer to smoke and talk with friends, coming back to the hall only to quickly make his next move. I think that if he'd had the chance to play in American tournaments, where events with classical, rapid and blitz time-controls are often held at the same time, he would have run from hall to hall, playing a few games simultaneously, as, for example, the British grandmaster Bogdan Lalic does.

Happy Birthday GM Lalic!

Jan-19-14  MarkFinan: I've just called this guy "A fine British player!", and even though his name's hardly typically English, it says above he's Croatian! I can assure the owners of this site he's English and plays in leagues and tournaments over here. He's a British citizen, I should say.

😃

  MissScarlett: <Update: GM Bogdan Lalic sent us a file with 157 straight games (in PGN here) that he did not lose, played between September 5, 2010 and October 9, 2011. 133 of those were Elo rated games, 24 were not rated. It should be noted that many of these games were given a draw at a very early stage; 31 draws lasted 15 moves or less.>
