Thank you for the support, fellows!
Encore! Encore! Let's see more games by the Gligoric the Great!
WOW. a bad tactician, eh? perhaps he was too modest.
Great video. Learned a lot. Love it. I see why Gligoric was ahead of his time! Awesome!
Yet another amazing lecture. Thank You!
Love this series ...Gligoric was world class and a classy well-liked person!
Thank you for sharing these awesome games your commentary make it all come alive!
by GM Dejan Bojkov
After reviewing a game in which Gligoric quickly turns a "slow moving center" into a dangerous kingside attack (as was typical of his style), GM Bojkov displays a game that ends in a combination you might recognize! One of the most famous puzzles in history that derives from Gligoric's obscure Najdorf is on display! Dejan then provides one more example of Gligoric's brilliance on the white side of a Sicilian, before signing off.
Players: Gligoric, Svetozar
vs. Bidev, Pavle
