  WTHarvey: Here's a few puzzles from Dusko's games not given here:
Premium Chessgames Member
  Honza Cervenka: Dusko Pavasovic is one of few 2600+ players who play regularly Scotch Game. His other speciality in opening repertoire is Sicilian Alapin variation B22 (1.e4 c5 2.c3).
Nov-01-06  McCool: His record with the Sicilian, Alapin (B22), was 106-25-90!
Apr-10-07  technical draw: Pavosovic...Anticipating the future. I think I have a VCR made by this guy.
Premium Chessgames Member
  brankat: Happy Birthday Dusko!
Premium Chessgames Member
  gambitfan: A nice miniature he played (Smith-Morra declined , Alapin Barmen,...)
Oct-06-09  Katu: TD: Yeah...
Feb-11-10  technical draw: Pavasovic is an 1.e4 player and a RLE player with 5.Nc3 like Lasker and Alekhine.
Premium Chessgames Member
  GrahamClayton: <Honza Cervenka>His other speciality in opening repertoire is Sicilian Alapin variation B22 (1.e4 c5 2.c3).

<Honza Cervenka>,
One of his pet lines in the Alapin Sicilian is the pawn sacrifice 8.♗b3, shown to great effect in the following game:

Pavasovic vs I Kurnosov, 2003

Mar-09-14  Everett: Much like Sveshnikov regarding the opening.
Oct-15-15  Autoreparaturwerkbau: It is really nice to see my compatriote (Slovenian) to represent the Chessgames' Player of the day.
Oct-15-15  waustad: He has played for Schachclub Mpoe Maria Saal for many years in the Austrian Bundesliga.
Oct-15-15  CountryGirl: A relatively little known player, but highly successful, especially with his white repertoire. Some 68% with c3 Sicilian and 70% with the Scotch(!) Happy birthday, Dusko.
