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.
