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)

  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.

😃
