Serbia Chess Championship – Round 3

Bojan Vuckovic wins to join Ivan Ivanisevic on the top

Serbia’s best performing player at the Dresden Olympiad, GM Bojan Vuckovic, won with White pieces against GM Nikola Sedlak, to join GM Ivan Ivanisevic on the top of the crosstable of the 2009 Serbian Chess Championship, with 2.5/3 points each. After two consecutive wins at the start of the competition, Ivanisevic quickly drew with GM Milos Perunovic in round three.

The fireworks in this Championship continue…Boban Bogosavljevic got more from the complicated game against Branko Damljanovic and eventually claimed a full point. Igor Miladinovic took an early advantage in the Czech Benoni and then executed a nice piece sacrifice to reach a better endgame, which he later converted into win. GM Dusan Rajkovic overextended his position, then sacrificed a piece, but FM Aleksandar Popovic defended accurately and signed a victory. Finally, GM Dejan Pikula used his vast experience in the Phillidor defence to beat Serbian junior champion Ivan Sarenac.
