[what is this?]

Dragoljub Janosevic became an International Master in 1964 and earned the grandmaster title the following year. In the 1950's and 1960's he played several times in the final of the Yugoslav Championship, and in international events during this period he scored victories over World Champions Robert James Fischer, Mikhail Tal, and Tigran Vartanovich Petrosian. However, he was never able to string enough first-class results together to join the ranks of the world's elite.

Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-12-04  serge the serb: The last game(184) is not by Janosevic, but Jacimovic. Please correct that.
Jun-18-04  iron maiden: A very inconsistent player, but brilliant on his day. He scored victories against Fischer, Tal, Petrosian, Reshevsky, and Larsen, among others.
Dec-24-04  DanielBryant: And he also drew Geller in brilliant fashion: Janosevic vs Geller, 1968
