  Phony Benoni: Wonder if he ever got together with Milko Bobotsov.
Jan-02-07  brankat: <Phony Benoni> It is possible. But he did "get together" with me many times between 1966-1971 :-)
Jun-29-07  brankat: How time flies! How we change without even noticing it. Haven't seen Bosko since 1972, when we were 21! Looking at the above photo, I would have never recognized him. Have I changed as much? :-) I wonder.
Dec-23-07  ketchuplover: Yes. Yes you have. :)
Dec-31-07  brankat: <ketchuplover> Thank You so much for such a re-assuring thought :-)
Dec-31-07  Chesstalesfan: Cheer up Brankat! In 1972 I was 22 y.o. I was elder than you that time. How much I liked your joke ketchuplover!!
A happy new year to all of us, on the condition that it will not change us even more.. Otherwise I have to study Kafka´s Metamorphosis..
Feb-14-08  brankat: Happy Birthday old buddy!
Feb-14-09  brankat: How fast time flies :-)

Happy Birthday Bosko!

  perfidious: Would never have recognised him from the picture above-I remember him from the NY Open in 1984; had to be close to 2 m tall, bushy dark hair and a lot of it.

Tournament win in August 2009:

Feb-13-12  brankat: Best wishes for Your Birthday buddy!
Aug-04-12  wordfunph: "My opponent is a gangly, shaggy Yugoslavian GM who looks like he might be auditioning to play Jesus on Broadway."

- GM Joel Benjamin (on GM Bosko Abramovic in 1984 New York Open)

Apr-05-13  brankat: Fourth place at the World Seniors Championship! Congratulations!
Feb-14-21  Nosnibor: I notice that his record against Gligoric his 2 wins and 1 draw. All games played in the Yugoslavia Championships.
Dec-19-21  Eastfrisian: He died on 19. December 2021. RIP Master Abramovic.
Dec-20-21  Himank02: May the great Serbian Master rest in peace. Yesterday, he played the sixth round of the Radnički tournament in Belgrade, and he passed away during the night.

  Check It Out: It was disconcerting to see his most recent game date 12/20/21 and then read that he passed on 12/19/21. Simple date error I'm sure, and way to go out with your boots on
