  TheAlchemist: Luka is a one of our biggest talents in recent years, he has been national junior champion many times and won a silver medal at the European and a bronze at the World championship (both in 2004).

He is an IM, he was born on May 13 1988, and has a current elo of 2458. He is also a very good blitz player and was once national champion (he beat many higher rated players).

  TheAlchemist: Oops, I'm very ashamed I forgot to mention he was World junior champion in 2002. It was a great thing for him, especially after he had a not so good performance in the Bled Olympiad, playing for the Slovenian B team.
May-13-06  BIDMONFA: Luka Lenic


Nov-18-08  popski: Awful start on Olympiad 2008?! :/ C'mon Luka, show some fighting spirit!

Premium Chessgames Member

Premium Chessgames Member
