GM Miroslav Markovic ends the hiatus, wins Central Serbia Open Championship

The 2012 Central Serbia Open Chess Championship was held from 13th to 19th February in Pozarevac. 70 players competed over nine rounds of Swiss system.

The highlight of the tournament was the come-back of GM Miroslav Markovic, 1998 Yugoslav champion and world top-100 player in 1999, who convincingly won the competition by collecting 7.5 points and leaving the nearest followers full point behind.

Markovic played in only a couple of events since 2005 and not a single rated game since the Swedish League 2009/2010.

The second place was shared between two veterans, 61-years old captain of the national team GM Bosko Abramovic and 66-years old Slobodan Martinovic, and a lady – WGM Andjelija Stojanovic, three-times women champion of Serbia.

Abramovic had the best tie-break score and therefore qualifies for the 2012 Serbian championship, together with the winner Markovic. Full standings bellow.

Earlier, Grandmasters Dejan Pikula and Danilo Milanovic qualified for the 2012 Serbian championship by taking the top two places in the Belgrade Chess Championship 2012.
