Knight behind 6,25

Stefan Stojacic is member of the Serbian national team that just won the U19 World Basketball Championship after beating USA in the finals. He threw in some of the crucial shots behind the 3-points line. Stefan could have been chess Grandmaster by now:

"First I started playing chess and I trained every day. At the European U10 championship I finished 3rd but then I started following my dad (while he played basketball). At the age of 11, I quit chess and decided to go on with basketball. I would like to play chess again, but I can't sit for that long. My last game at the European championship lasted 5 hours."
