Examples of "dragoljub_velimirović"
Dragoljub Velimirović (Serbian Cyrillic: Драгољуб Велимировић; 12 May 1942 – 22 May 2014) was a Serbian (formerly Yugoslav) chess grandmaster, born in Valjevo.
The successes of Tal and Fischer inspired a new generation of players to take up the Modern Benoni in the 1970s and 1980s, including Walter Browne, Ljubomir Ljubojević, John Nunn, Dragoljub Velimirović, Lev Psakhis, Mihai Suba and Nick de Firmian. The young Garry Kasparov also had the defence in his arsenal—his win against Viktor Korchnoi at the 1982 Lucerne Olympiad
Dragoljub Velimirović died on May 22, 2014, at the age of 73 in Belgrade after a prolonged illness. He was survived by his wife Mirjana Velimirović and his daughter Ana Velimirovic-Zorica. There was a commemoration ceremony in Velimirović's honour on May 26, 2014 at 11:00 at the Serbian Chess Federation. Velimirovic was cremated on May 26, 2014 and the burial was at the New Cemetery, Belgrade.
A regular on the international tournament circuit of the 1970s, he enjoyed considerable success. Notably, there were outright or shared first places at the Biel Open 1972 and 1973 (the latter shared with Janos Flesch), at the inaugural Banja Luka tournament 1974 (ahead of Vlastimil Hort and Gennady Kuzmin, other notable players included Jan Timman, Borislav Ivkov, István Csom, James Tarjan - maybe his biggest success), and at Bajmok, Varna (both 1975), Vukovar 1976 and Zemun 1980 (shared with Dragoljub Velimirović).
Fischer returned to the Najdorf Sicilian, but played the main line rather than the Poisoned Pawn Variation with which he had lost game 11. At move 13, Fischer sacrificed a pawn for counterplay, which Spassky accepted. After 19.c3, Spassky had the upper hand (Gipslis). After 28...Rd7 the game was even, but when Spassky took a second pawn with 29.Qxh5?! it allowed Fischer a very strong attack. Spassky, on the brink of disaster, "found miraculous replies while in time pressure" and Fischer was only able to achieve a draw by threefold repetition after 43 moves. Two years later, Yugoslav grandmaster Dragoljub Velimirović improved on Spassky's play with the piece sacrifice 14.Bxb5!?, winning a crushing victory in Velimirović–Al Kazzaz, Nice Olympiad 1974. Black in turn later improved on Fischer's 12...0-0-0 with 12...b4.
