Dimitrije Mandic
Member since Feb-27-09 · Last seen Apr-24-22
I'm a musician from Niš, Serbia. I play violin, and I'm going to be the best musician ever, but I also play chess in my spare time, as a hobby. Though I've never played chess professionally, I love chess for all the art there is in it, and we're talking about a virtually unsolvable game here! My favourite chess players are Alexander Alekhine and many players from the pre-Fischer Russian chess school, like Nezhmetdinov, Tal, Bronstein, Smyslov, Petrosian, Spassky and Geller. Giants like Kasparov, Karpov and Fischer also always deserve honorable mentions.

   Apr-12-22 Kasparov vs Carlsen, 2004 (replies)
Dimitrije Mandic: <gezafan: If Kasparov is the best player of all time then why did he lose a match to Kramnik without winning a single game?> Because that's the tradition if you hold the World Chess Champion title for some 15+ years, it seems. Just look at Emmanuel Lasker! :D But ...
   Jun-19-19 Bogoljubov vs Rellstab, 1940
Dimitrije Mandic: 21. g4 - outstanding move!
   Mar-20-13 N Panic vs M Markovic, 2008 (replies)
Dimitrije Mandic: Yep, it sounds very similar to "Panich". (It's actually spelled 'Panić'.)
   Nov-30-11 Carlsen vs Shirov, 2011 (replies)
Dimitrije Mandic: Incredible. The more players like Shirov and Nakamura lose, the more sympathetic I become with them.
   Jan-31-11 Ivanchuk vs I Nyzhnyk, 2010 (replies)
Dimitrije Mandic: It just wouldn't be Chucky without the Queen sac, would it? ;)
   Dec-06-10 Kasparov vs Oxford United, 1993 (replies)
Dimitrije Mandic: Hey, Ljubomir Ljubojević IS his real name, and Krum Georgiev doesn't sound any fake to me either. Those names might seem odd to strangers, but they're not fake, perhaps they're just a bit uncommon, but just a bit. In fact, any surname in Serbia that doesn't end with ...
   Oct-16-10 Udris vs Tal, 1953 (replies)
Dimitrije Mandic: Can anyone point me to a detailed analysis of this game, with annotations? Although I don't need those examples made of whole games for theory, just the critical lines that could've been played throughout the game.
   Jul-13-10 M Basman vs S Joksic, 1979 (replies)
Dimitrije Mandic: That's a fantastic mating net! I just love it when it's achieved without a Queen!
   Mar-06-10 G Arzumanian vs Golubev, 2006 (replies)
Dimitrije Mandic: Why in the name of... didn't he play 32... Qc2#?
   Feb-27-10 Capablanca vs Ilyin-Zhenevsky, 1925 (replies)
Dimitrije Mandic: Capa neglected the Open Sicilian, and the Sicilian in general - and lost. Also, he played a very fine attack, but this wouldn't be his first time to lose to a Queen exchange sac. Anyone remember Mir Sultan Khan? ;) P.S. One big weakness I can spot in Capa's play in general ...
