|Feb-20-05|| ||WTHarvey: Lalic was originally a Yugoslav GM. FIDE says he now plays for England. Chessmetrics.com has him peaking at #90 in the world in 1997. |
Here are critical positions from some of his games not shown here: http://www.wtharvey.com/lali.html
|Mar-08-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Bogdan Lalic|
|Mar-08-06|| ||alicefujimori: I quite liked Lalic's, "The Grunfeld for the Attacking Player." It demonstrated some of the themes and ideas behind many Grunfeld lines quite well. Especially when there aren't that many Grunfeld books out there.|

|Mar-08-09|| ||brankat: Happy Birthday Bogdan!|
|Feb-28-11|| ||wordfunph: excerpt from the book Smart Chip from St. Petersburg by GM Genna Sosonko..|
In one of the rounds of the Leningrad Spartakiad of 1967 I was playing on the board next to Chepukaitis. During his game with Ruban, Chip kept going out to the foyer to smoke and talk with friends, coming back to the hall only to quickly make his next move. I think that if he'd had the chance to play in American tournaments, where events with classical, rapid and blitz time-controls are often held at the same time, he would have run from hall to hall, playing a few games simultaneously, as, for example, the British grandmaster Bogdan Lalic does.
|Mar-08-12|| ||brankat: <..he would have run from hall to hall, playing a few games simultaneously, as, for example, the British grandmaster Bogdan Lalic does.> That's funny.|
Happy Birthday GM Lalic!
|Mar-08-12|| ||Penguincw: Happy Birthday POTD.|
|Jan-19-14|| ||MarkFinan: I've just called this guy "A fine British player!", and even though his name's hardly typically English, it says above he's Croatian! I can assure the owners of this site he's English and plays in leagues and tournaments over here. He's a British citizen, I should say. |
|Jun-08-16|| ||GrandMaesterPycelle: Ah, Valery Salov's partner in insanity.|
|Nov-01-18|| ||ketchuplover: He has a 106 game unbeaten streak! which unfortunately isn't officially recognized anywhere :(|
|Apr-05-19|| ||MissScarlett: <Update: GM Bogdan Lalic sent us a file with 157 straight games (in PGN here) that he did not lose, played between September 5, 2010 and October 9, 2011. 133 of those were Elo rated games, 24 were not rated. It should be noted that many of these games were given a draw at a very early stage; 31 draws lasted 15 moves or less.>|
|May-22-21|| ||Albertan: Lalic was defeated in a tournament game by 10 year-old Frederick Waldhausen Gordon |
|Jun-04-22|| ||BogdanLalic: GM Bogdan Lalić lost that game to 10 years old in a rapid game online it was 15 minutes per player so do not exaggerate please.|
|Jun-04-22|| ||MissScarlett: How about sending us the PGN?|
