Jun-06-14  waustad: With his win against Benjamin Bok he too sole 2nd place in the Bosna Open. His one loss was to Zdenko Kozul and he had a performance rating of 2648. This brings his rating back over the 2500 line with room to spare. His was the only game among the leaders that didn't end in a very short draw.
