Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-22-05  WTHarvey: Here are some 'must win' positions from Marjanovic's games:
Mar-22-05  marekg248: You're incredibly quick, great job. On Sunday I spent some time solving Konstantinopolsky's positions. You must have some secret sources of games, I have a database with 500,000+ games that came with Fritz and the earliest games of his were from early 1940's I think. I have to check this player's positions too.
Mar-22-05  WTHarvey: I'm an early bird. :-) Slavoljub Marjanovic was born in 1955 but FIDE lists 8 Marjanovics (!?). Slavoljub is the only one with an international title. I use Chess Assistant 8.0 or Essentia, the Bookup database. is an excellent source of recent games.
Jan-06-07  BIDMONFA: Slavoljub Marjanovic


Jan-06-10  Appaz: The home country of Slavoljub Marjanovic is given as Yugoslavia, but Serbia is probably more correct these days (although he <may> prefer Yugoslavia himself, as a lot of ex-Yugoslavians).

Marjanovic-Rogozenko 2000 Ciocaltea Mem Black to move

Rogozenko played the natural looking 34..Qh2 35.Kf1= Qh1+ 36.Kf2 Rd2+ 37.Ke3 Bf4+?? and went on to lose. Winning is 34..Rd1+ which forces white into an ending two pawns down
