LIFE is sometimes brutal.


I stil remember, 20 years ago, this early morning, when Croatian radio, telling us that basketball player Drazen Petrovic, died in fatal car accident in Southern Germany. The best ever, european player in NBA history. Emotions were unbelieavable, as Croatia still leaves this tragedy, year and year, not only, with more then 3,000 candles on his grave, each Novemeber 01.


Then, on ATP Rijeka tennis tournament, in 2009, by rear occassion, I was the last who ever took picture of tenis player Montcourt. And listening his dispute with my Slovenian friend, player, Blaz Kavcic. Just 24 hours later, we were all shocked with the tragic news, that Montcourt girlfriend found him dead in his appartment near Boulogna forest in Paris?? Can you believe it?? See all on


And now, so young, so nice, Vesna Rozic, at age 26. Last time I saw her, was in Solaris Sibenik, where she played for Slovenia, in MITROPA Coup. Unfortunately, exchange just one sentence,as her friend, Jana Krivec would not speak with me, so that Vesna must listen Jana.

Recently we reported Slovenian WIM Vesna Rozic was diagnosed with metastatic peritoneal cancer. The help from the chess community was not enough as Vesna has passed away.

Why did You take Vesna??


VESNA, lahko ti samo sele sporocim,da sam izjemoma potresen sa zalno novico in so tvojim odhodom. Solze mi teku na porti hotel DELTA La Ville Montreal, gdje pisem ovaj IN MEMORIAM. In gde so nedavno, bili tvoji slovenski para plavalci, in tenisac Gregor Zemlja.


I do not know, from which country is Marianas Variety, which published so nice about Vesna.I am now making copy of thisRemembering Vesna

THE Slovenian Chess Federation lost their Board No. 2 WIM Vesna Rozic, who sadly lost her battle with cancer.

Vesna was well known in the chess community throughout Europe and other parts of the world, so her passing came as a shock to us all.

In memory of her, I will present some games that she has played against some of the best players in the world against women. Vesna also played in four chess Olympiads in the years 2002, 2008, 2010 and 2012. Here are Vesna’s games against some of the best.
