|Feb-16-06|| ||BIDMONFA: Dusko Pavasovic|
|Feb-16-06|| ||WTHarvey: Here's a few puzzles from Dusko's games not given here: http://www.wtharvey.com/pava.html|
|Feb-16-06|| ||Honza Cervenka: Dusko Pavasovic is one of few 2600+ players who play regularly Scotch Game. His other speciality in opening repertoire is Sicilian Alapin variation B22 (1.e4 c5 2.c3).|
|Nov-01-06|| ||McCool: His record with the Sicilian, Alapin (B22), was 106-25-90!|
|Apr-10-07|| ||technical draw: Pavosovic...Anticipating the future. I think I have a VCR made by this guy.|
|Oct-15-08|| ||brankat: Happy Birthday Dusko!|
|Oct-31-08|| ||gambitfan: A nice miniature he played (Smith-Morra declined , Alapin Barmen,...)|
|Oct-06-09|| ||Katu: TD: Yeah...|
|Feb-11-10|| ||technical draw: Pavasovic is an 1.e4 player and a RLE player with 5.Nc3 like Lasker and Alekhine.|
|Jul-27-10|| ||GrahamClayton: <Honza Cervenka>His other speciality in opening repertoire is Sicilian Alapin variation B22 (1.e4 c5 2.c3).|
One of his pet lines in the Alapin Sicilian is the pawn sacrifice 8.♗b3, shown to great effect in the following game:
Pavasovic vs I Kurnosov, 2003
|Mar-09-14|| ||Everett: Much like Sveshnikov regarding the opening.|
|Oct-15-15|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: It is really nice to see my compatriote (Slovenian) to represent the Chessgames' Player of the day.|
|Oct-15-15|| ||waustad: He has played for Schachclub Mpoe Maria Saal for many years in the Austrian Bundesliga.|
|Oct-15-15|| ||CountryGirl: A relatively little known player, but highly successful, especially with his white repertoire. Some 68% with c3 Sicilian and 70% with the Scotch(!) Happy birthday, Dusko.|
