I am 48 year old FIDE master living in Serbia.I am playing chess for more then 35 years. I'm a participant of many open and berger tournaments in the countries of former Yugoslavia, with varying success. I regularly play at team championships in Serbia since 1989, and as a rule, I have achieved my best results. I am a member of ŠK Metalac from Gornji Milanovac who competes in the First League of Central Serbia.


People say practice makes perfect to mean that if you practice something enough, you will eventually be able to do it perfectly.

I think that anyone who wants to make progress in chess needs to know basic positions and be ready to recognize them in practice. The tactic is relatively easy to solve, there are many bases and books about it, it's enough to be constant and regularly exercise them. In my opinion special emphasis should be placed on practicing the chess endgames through the training session, or if we practice a certain position from the opening, practicing exercise through the training games and afterwards analyzing the games.

My favorite quotes:
"In order to improve your game you must study the endgame before everything else." ~ Jose Raul Capablanca
"People who want to improve should take their defeats as lessons, and endeavor to learn what to avoid in the future. You must also have the courage of your convictions. If you think your move is good, make it." ~ Jose Raul Capablanca
"The ability to work hard for days on end without losing focus is a talent. The ability to keep absorbing new information after many hours of study is a talent." ~ Garry Kasparov
