Nerver heard of him before. Here is an interesting point of view from 2007:

GM Zlatko Ilincic, fearless fighter who tied first place at the end [Banja Luka], defined current WCC situation as "chaotic": <After introducing wide-range qualifications for the European or World Championship, chess players have gotten opportunity to earn higher prizes, but also they have to invest more. In order to achieve some good results, you have to invest in expansive cycles. Everything was free before. For me, the last real World Championsip was match Kasparov-Karpov back in 1990. Since then, we didn't have World Champion recognized by the entire community. Just look at Kramnik and Anand, they are at the very top for the last 10 years but haven't played a single match against each other!>
