Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-17-10  jon01: Denis Kadric was born in 1995 and he finished European Championships with a 2472 performance. A new talent? Let's wait and see.
Mar-26-10  Galion: He is good and promising player, but he has problems with players below his rating. He's losing rating vs them because he can't win them so often.

  Penguincw: < He is good and promising player, but he has problems with players below his rating. He's losing rating vs them because he can't win them so often. >

Luckily, Denis Kadric didn't have that problem at the Bosna Open, as he gained rating points in every single game except for his R4 loss to a 2596 (he's rated 2493), as he beat all 5 players rated lower than him.

Anyway, he finished with 6.5/9 (+5,-1,=3) and 9th place, and even bagged 11.4 points (rated 2495 in June) to move up to 2506.4.

Aug-02-15  wordfunph: GM in 2015..

Jun-09-16  sonia91: He won the 46th "Bosna" International Tournament in Sarajevo, Bosnia:

Among past winners of this prestigious tournament are Korchnoi, Kasparov, Carlsen:

Jun-12-16  diagonal: <sonia91> thanks for the link! Sarajevo Bosna once was a supertournament, the series started in 1957, lasting up until 1988, then there was a ten years break due to Balcan conflicts, a powerful restart in 1998, third participation and third win for Korchnoi, Kasparov demolished the field in 1999 & 2000, young Carlsen was co-winner in 2006.

It was right after his victory at Bosna in May 1999, when Great Gazza achieved in the next ELO list of July 1999 his ELO 2851 benchmark rating, then a new record (later surpassed by Carlsen, I do not want to open the inflation topic).

How strong Sarajevo Bosna was, is maybe best demonstrated with a summary of prominent non-winners.

Great players also competing, <not winning at Bosna Invitation>: Spassky, Petrosian, Keres, Kotov, Simagin, Eliskases, Larsen, Andersson, Lobron, Darga, Robatsch, Benko, Browne, R. Byrne, Seirawan, Pirc, Udovcic, Vukic, Velimirovic, Cebalo, Hulak, Lengyel, Adorjan, Csom, Ribli, Sax, Smejkal, Jansa, Kavalek, Yusupov, Vaganian, Romanishin, Bareev, Van der Wiel, Piket, Bacrot, Miles, Short, Adams, Harikrishna, Sasikiran, Naiditsch, Leko, Radjabov, Kasimdzhanov, and Topalov.

Since 2010 it is played as an Open tournament (swiss system) and lost its international character. Still an honour to win that traditional event, congrats to Kadric, clear first in 2016.

Happy birthday, Denis Kadric!
