|Apr-06-06|| ||Bobak Zahmat: This guy Saric hasn't really have the best results :) Just 16,7% overall record, poor guy.|
|Apr-06-06|| ||Jim Bartle: At least he's got a couple of draws. There are plenty here with worse records. It's just that cg doesn't post the winning %.|
|Apr-07-06|| ||Bobak Zahmat: Check Asefi Zahiruddin profile, this is my uncle. He hardly never draws a game!!! Always fighting till the game is finished decisive.|
|Apr-07-06|| ||Ivan23: Well, most of Saric's games here are against considerably higher rated players.|
|Apr-07-06|| ||Bobak Zahmat: Have you seen the checked the games of Asefi Zahiruddin already? He has even played against Krishnan Sasikiran (2650+) and the game lasted for more than 40 moves.|
|Apr-07-06|| ||Jim Bartle: You're right! 16 games and not a single draw. I wonder if that's the most at cg without a draw.|
|Apr-08-06|| ||Bobak Zahmat: <Jim Bartle> I will publish some more games of Asefi Zahiruddin, all decisive games!!! Quite a fighting player indeed.|

|Jan-25-14|| ||Aleksandar Li: Greetings comunity! Here, I would like a share a sort of closer information concerning Ivan Saric. My native town Livno is just a 80 km from Ivan's-Split, and Miljenko Jergovic has published story about a man who travels from Split to Livno and something about the war in Bosnia eventually (haven't red it, yet) I gues, which is just by the way (for some readers maybe), and something less important for this post of mine here. I want to say some things about Ivan. Me and my chess friends follow him for more than 10 years, and we have been expecting Ivan to show up globally. So this is the time and young lion and my neighbour in a way is about to play in the prime section next year. Congratulations for him and his father and brother, his wife and all chess family and friends. But my point here is next: Mr. Ivan Saric is able to become one of the few on the top, and, as I see it, he will take this and next year to make some considerable growth in his rating status and global chess affirmation. And, as I am predicting it, I am looking forward that we will be one of his followers and comentators. In the end, I would like to mention that Ivan's treatment of peaces seems to me like a very serious thing, and I am happy for him for this success in Netherlands! My positiveness and best regards to all the chess lovers world wide!|
|Jan-26-14|| ||cro777: Jon Ludvig Hammer: "Saric definitely earned his spot in the top group next year. He's born in 1990 - a decent crop of chess players!"|
|Jan-26-14|| ||Penguincw: Congratulations to Ivan Saric for winning the Tata Steel (Group B) (2014) with a round to spare. His final score is 10/13 (+7, -0, =6), which is +7. He was the only undefeated player in the tournament. Saric finished 1.5 points ahead of runner-ups Baadur Jobava and Jan Timman (he drew both of them, but could've beaten Jobava).|
Saric gained 24 points, bumping his rating to 2661, which is a career high. 24 points is the largest increase for both tournaments.
Great performance, and let's see how he'll do next year.
|Jan-27-14|| ||cro777: Saric's impressions on his win of the tournament and next year's challenge.|
"I'm very happy that next year I will play in the Tata Steel A tournament. I've never played such strong players before."
|Feb-10-14|| ||cro777: After 8 rounds Saric leads Croatian Championship by a full point. (12 players are competing in 11 rounds, from 3 - 13 February 2014).|
|Feb-13-14|| ||twinlark: Congratulations to Ivan Saric, winning the Croatian Championship so soon after his splendid win at Tata B.|
|Feb-14-14|| ||cro777: Croatian championship has finished in Porec. 12 grandmasters determined the champion in a round-robin. Ivan Saric finished first scoring 7/11.|
As <twinlark> pointed out, this is Saric's second big sucess this year - recently he became the winner of the Tata Steel B (Challengers) in Wijk aan Zee. This gives him the opportunity to compete in A-group in the next year.
Ivan Saric is 23 years old and his current rating is 2661.
