Oct-18-05  Averageguy: How does pick the player of the day?
Oct-18-05  AlexanderMorphy: thats a very interesting question,averageguy> i've been asking the smae question for quite a while! The last good player who i've seen named player of the day was this bloke called Topalov :)
Oct-18-05  lopium: Just have to pick a name without any annotation yet, or a unfamous one; in the player's list.
Premium Chessgames Member
  TheAlchemist: Famous or not, his rating of 2545 is nothing to be ashamed of.
Oct-18-05  SnoopDogg: Is this the brother of Serbian Master Dragan Drasko?
Jan-27-06  BIDMONFA: Milan Drasko


Jan-27-06  Prugno: A player of the day I know something about :)
I've met him in a couple of tournament games and seen him in action pretty often, since he seems to enjoy playing in Italy.

Unlike some of his countrymen, he's an extremely polite, modest and reserved fellow (post-game analysis with him is a pleasant and instructive experience). His style is also super-positional most of the time. But this doesn't stop him from being extremely dangerous: narrow opening repertoire which he knows very well, excellent positional understanding, tactically alert when necessary, and especially a great endgame technique, at least as far as I can tell. Also a good rapid player who can play many consecutive strong moves even in time pressure.

There are no official records on unbeaten streaks, but Wang's 82 games seems among the longest. Mikhail Tal, former world champion, went unbeaten over 93 games between October 1973 and October 1974. He also had a streak of 86 games from July 1972 to April 1973.

Vladimir Kramnik of Russia, another former world champion, went undefeated over 82 games from January 1999 to July 2000. Milan Drasko, a grandmaster from Montenegro, also avoided defeat for 84 games from October 2006 to September 2007.

Milan Drasko had 84 unbeaten games streak how did chessbase and chessdom forget this

White normally proceeds with moves like a4, Ba3 and when possible, Bd6, dominating the important e5 square. There are a number of critical ideas from this position from Black's perspective.
