Gligoric(left) vs  Fischer (right)
Former Yugoslavia chess legends - GM Svetozar Gligoric, 89,  dies yesterday. He is among the top non-Soviet world GMs during the 50's and 60's. He has a record of 4 wins, 6 draws and 6 lost against another legend , the great Bobby Fischer.

One of his great contribution in opening theory is the Gligoric System - 7.Be3 in the King's Indian Defense Classical Variation which i've studied in the past.
