Jun-12-14  optimal play: Stefan Djuric finished equal second (9/11) in the Adsteam-Lidums International Tournament held in Adelaide from 28th December 1986 to 10th January 1987

He was the only player to inflict a defeat against the eventual winner, Gyula Sax, who won all of his other ten games (finishing 10/11).

Although this win (hereunder) was technically on time, Djuric was clearly in a winning position at the end.
