  TheAlchemist: Luka is a one of our biggest talents in recent years, he has been national junior champion many times and won a silver medal at the European and a bronze at the World championship (both in 2004).

He is an IM, he was born on May 13 1988, and has a current elo of 2458. He is also a very good blitz player and was once national champion (he beat many higher rated players).

  TheAlchemist: Oops, I'm very ashamed I forgot to mention he was World junior champion in 2002. It was a great thing for him, especially after he had a not so good performance in the Bled Olympiad, playing for the Slovenian B team.

Mar-24-12  brankat: The second one always makes sense. Or, at least, eventually it will!
Jul-22-17  sonia91: He will took part for th first time in the World Cup:
Oct-03-18  sonia91: Does anybody know why he played only one game (1st round) at the Olympiad?
