Grandmasters Leaving Bosnia

GM Bojan Kurajica (2562) and GM Emir Dizdarevic (2489) are leaving Bosnia & Herzegovina for Croatia on the next rating list. Kurajica says this is practically forced step, as BIH Chess Federation shows no care about its top players.

Many Bosnian players have already changed federations. GM Milan Vukic, GM Miodrag R.Savic, IM Aleksandar Savanovic and IM Vlado Jakovljevic are on SCG rating list. GM Ivan Sokolov moved to Netherlands while GM Predrag Nikolic refuses to play for Bosnia. GM Suat Atalik returned to Turkey and even Zurab Azmaiparashvili spent some months on Bosnian rating list.
