  Tabanus: 5th in Srebrno Jezero (Serbia) 19-27 June 2010:

Nov-08-10  celessar: Why does he have so many drawn games of a dozen moves or less? I don't understand why the game is not played to an outcome..?
Apr-17-11  BobCrisp: As the saying went in Yugoslavian circles: better <Arsovic>, than arsenic.
