Jun-17-09  wordfunph: Only one kibitz? Sad page...

Happy Birthday Grandmaster Branko Damljanovic!

Jun-17-09  wanabe2000: <wordfunph> Here you go. In 2008 Branko Damljanovic was the highest rated player in the Belgrade tournament. He finished 6.5/9 equal 10th a point behind the winner. He had a high of FIDE 2625 and played in the EICC 2009 and scored +4-4=3. Finally, one of my favorite books is "Yugoslav Chess Triumphs" by Trifunovic 1976 and I like doing research.

  LIFE Master AJ: I believe that I saw this player when I was in Iceland ... pretty sure he played in one of the Reykjavik Opens there.
Jun-17-13  brankat: Best wishes for Your Birthday!
Aug-27-13  twinlark: Thanks <Tabanus>!
Nov-25-13  donjova: Damljanovic won a silver medal for his performance on the third board at European Team Chess Championship 2013.
May-17-17  bla bla: I met Branko Damljanović international tournament,, Silver Lake '' and beat him and I only have 10 years.
Jun-17-22  Nosnibor: <bla bla> The Silver Lake event started June 2017. I assume that you met Damljanovic before the event and beat him in a friendly or simul game, although I don`t understand your final comment that "I have only 10 years".
