On just finished Amateur OPEN championship, Paracin, my young student from Macedonia, Matej Zvezdakoski, scored 6/9 without defeat, playing against so much over-rated opponents. He played very logical and stable chess and result is great. Matej confirmed he is great talent with bright future. He got prize and earned new 118 ELO points!
Well done, Matej! Lets make brilliant career together!
Since the 8th to 14th May Noemi Spiranec has participated her first Croatian Women’s chess championship. She started badly, scoring only one draw in first three rounds, although he had very promising positions. Throwing away 1,5 points, she finally started both playing better and realizing positional advantages in her next games. She scored 4 points out of 5 last rounds and finally earned new 22 ELO points! Due to bad start, she missed chances to fight for a medal, or even more. But, performance was excellent, there was no player showed more than Noemi. She won last round game and practically determined a new champion! Her play was very fine, and there is no doubt – continuing this way in next period she will get more experience and deserve to be involved in national team. Looking forward to new successes!

Together with Mateusz Paszewski I have participated Open “Karpos”. Tournament was played in Skopje, from 1st to 8th April 2017. Spectators enjoyed that amazing tournament and Mateusz Paszewski was one of the stars. His brave style was recognized by nice public in Skopje and he had many supporters there. He played some very attractive and sharp games. His games against Ulvi Sadikhov and Zoran Tsintsar must find place in books because of both inventive and patient play. Also he was close to stop Bulgarian super star Kiril Georgiev on his road to sharing the first place. In time trouble, finally, Georgiev found way to crush inventive defense. Well done, Mateusz!
I suggest to all friends and followers to visit Skopje and Macedonia at all and participate some of amazing tournaments there. I was glad I finally met Mateusz and we really spend some nice time in lovely capital of Macedonia, Skopje.
