DRAGOLJUB M CIRIC
(born Nov-12-1935, died Aug-17-2014, 78 years old) Yugoslavia (citizen of Serbia)

[what is this?]
Dragoljub Miladin Ciric was awarded the IM title in 1961 and the GM title in 1965. In tournaments his best results were 1st= with Mikhail Tal at Sarajevo 1966, 1st= with Anatoly Lein at Sarajevo 1968 and 1st= at Saint Felin de Guixols in 1975. He played on two Yugoslav Olympiad teams, in 1966 (+8-0=0 at 2nd reserve board (2)) and 1968 but his health began to decline and so too did his results.

  wordfunph: At the Chess Olympiad in Havana, GM Dragoljub Ciric adjourned his game against Argentina's Sanguinetti. Ciric's position was bad and everybody expected his defeat. Most critical about Ciric's chances was his team-mate GM Matulovic. When the game resumed, Sanguinetti at some point blundered. When Ciric checkmated him, he exclaimed: "Mat….ulovic!"

unfortunately, i couldn't find the Ciric-Sanguinetti game here in CG.

http://www.chessdom.com/in-memoriam...

Aug-19-14  tjipa: So sad that I learn of this player just on the day of his passing. I have noticed that the games of every player that has reached GM level are full of interesting ideas, even if he/she never reaches the very top. Chess is so rich a world thanks to these people that have devoted their lives to it. Rest in peace, Dragoljub.

Serbian article about the death of Dragoljub Ćirić For later investigators: The news was published on 17 August 2014. The translation is horrible from Google, so I reprint here the important parts for the saddening news in Serbian:

<Драгољуб Ћирић 1935-2014

Шаховски савез Београда и шаховски клуб Раднички обавештавају јавност да је преминуо истакнути велемајстор Драгољуб Ћирић.>

Belgrade Chess Federation and Chess Club "Radnički" Čačak have the sad duty to inform that the prominent Grandmaster Dragoljub Ćirić passed away."
