|Aug-19-09|| ||BIDMONFA: Milan Vukic|
|Aug-19-09|| ||whiteshark: <Player of the Day>|
He was also first Bosnia and Herzegovina chess champion in 2005.
"62-years old GM Milan Vukic (2467) won the race after the clinical finish when he scored 4 wins in last 4 rounds.
Interesting fact is that he started to play chess at the age of 18. For few years he was busy with other sports and then when he started to play serious chess, it took him only 6 months to go from anonymous player to IM titleholder.
He was also first BIH Grandmaster ever and champion of 3 different countries. In 1970 he was champion of Yugoslavia, <in 1994 champion of "small" Yugoslavia and <now champion of Bosnia and Herzegovina.>>
Milan is probably the best blitz player on the Balkans."

|Aug-19-12|| ||brankat: Happy Birthday GM Vukic!|
|Aug-19-18|| ||diagonal: Winner of the inaugural edition of the traditional International Invitation Torunament at <Banja Luka in 1974>, as clear first ahead of 2. Kuzmin, 3./4. Hort, Timman, 5. Ivkov; round robin with 16 players including also Csom, Tarjan, and Planinc.|
< Albo d' Oro Banja Luka series:
# 1974 Vukic
# 1976 Hort
# 1979 Kasparov
# 1981 Tseshkovsky
# 1983 Hulak, Adorjan, Speelman
# 1985 Chiburdanidze
# 1987 Ekström, Hulak
# 2007 Korchnoi, Ilincic
# 2008 Heberla >
(if shared wins, first on tie-break is mentioned first)
This major recurring, but in unregular intervals played international tournament is most famous for <Garry (Garik) Kasparov's> clear first as a non-titled player, <at age of 16> (and celebrating his birthday during that event!) in 1979.
Then <Maia Chiburdanidze's> win in 1985 ahead of bunch of male grandmasters: she was surpassing eight male grandmasters and reminded within unbeaten, winning among others against the two Brits Short and Plaskett.
And finally - it's never too late, <Viktor Korchnoi's> success, like Garry and Maia, he took Banja Luka at his very first participation (he already was invited in 1979 but could not particpate because of the soviet tournament boycott against him), at age of <76 years>.
|Aug-19-18|| ||rea: Banja Luka 1979 was Vukic's Ossip Bernstein moment. (See Capablanca-Bernstein San Sebastian 1911) Vukic objected to the participation of an untitled 16 year old Russian boy, only to get crushed by him.|
|Aug-19-18|| ||Howard: Oh? What about the fairly-well-known story about the Yates-Tarrasch game from Hamburg 1910 ? The story behind that game is similar to this one.|
|Aug-20-18|| ||diagonal: <rea> That was a misjudgement by Vukic, to put it mildly:) Didn't remember, thanks! <Howard> Oh, yes, Tarrasch got Tharrasched, too.. |
Pride and Prejudice: there are other prominent cases, ie some gentlemen in the club had some otb reservations towards Mrs Menchik :)
