In honour of 77-year-old chess legend from Serbia - Miroslav Milenkovic Bone

Miroslav Milenkovic Bone and the tournament
winner IM Zoran Novoselski.

Hello Everyone,

Some small chess tournaments too catch our eye. Here is one special one.
The 6th Bone Blitz Tournament (a 13-round blitz event) was held on December 26 to honour Miroslav Milenkovic Bone, the Serbian chess legend, who has won many competitions in France, Italy and Bulgaria, including twice the Championship of Paris in the mid 50s. At the age of 77, Bone is still actively playing for the local club Radnicki in the Central Serbia League.

How cool!

IM Zoran Novoselski from Kragujevac won the event by collecting 10.5 points, finishing full point ahead of the opposition. Novoselski obviously enjoys playing in Cuprija, as he already won two very strong tournaments here - the 2nd Bone Blitz in 2006 and Mirko Kolar Memorial in 2009.

FM Dejan Brankovic and FM Boroljub Zlatanovic are sharing the second place with 9.5 points each. IM Miodrag Perunovic, who had a crushing start but later slipped with two consecutive defeats, and FM Aleksandar Milosevic are joint 4th with 9 points each. These FIDE Masters were all Bone's team-mates in Radnicki at some point in time.
