Default My Biography of Dimitrije Bjelica

Dimitrije Bjelica
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Revision as of 05:21, 14 July 2006; Sam Sloan

Dimitrije Bjelica (born 1935 in Belgrade, Yugoslavia) is a Yugoslav
chess master who can be found in the Guinness Book of Records for
playing a 312-board simul in Subotica in 1997 (sco +219-1=92). He
also played a record-breaking 55-game blindfold simul (+50-1=4) in the
same year in Herceg Novi. Bjelica is also one of the most prolific
chess authors in the world, with over 80 books in 180 editions and 35
videos and CDs to his name. He has organised many big events and was
the arbiter at tournaments like Linares.

Dimitrije Bjelica is one of the world's most famous and most prolific
chess journalists. He is the author of more than 80 books and
thousands of published newspaper and magazine articles about chess.
Based in Belgrade, he has interviewed at one time or another virtually
all of the world's leading chess players. For the past more than 50
years, any time an important chess event is held anywhere in Europe,
Bjelica has been there.

Bjelica claims to be a close personal friend of Bobby Fischer. Fischer
says in reply, "I want nothing to do with that guy". Nevertheless,
Bjelica has on his website and sells videos of interviews he took of
Bobby Fischer before Fischer became would chess champion.

A tireless self promoter, Bjelica tells the story that at the great
tournament in Zurich, 1959, he was driving with Future World Chess
Champions Mikhail Tal and Bobby Fischer and they nearly had an
accident. "What would happen if we turned over?" asked Bobby. "All the
world's press on the front pages would say - 'Dimitrije Bjelica got
killed in a car accident with two passengers,'" replied Bjelica.

Bjelica is known for his annual awards of "Black Oscars" in chess. The
most frequent winners of these Black Oscars are Alexander Matanovic,
Georgios Makropoulos, Florencio Campomanes and Geurt Gijssen. He also
awards White Oscars, which most often go to Anatoly Karpov and
Borislav Ivkov.

Dimitrije Bjelica is the father of the most famous and most productive
Serbian writer, Isidora Bjelica.

Default My Biography of Dimitrije Bjelica

Dear Dimitrije Bjelica,

OK. I have modified your biography to state the following:

Dimitrije Bjelica (born November 8, 1935 in Vrbica Gornja,
Montenegro) is a Yugoslav chess master who can be found in the
Guinness Book of Records for playing a 312-board simul in Subotica in
1997 (sco +219-1=92). He also played a record-breaking 56-game
blindfold simul (+51-1=4) in the same year in Herceg Novi.

As you can see, I put your birth date as November 8 and changed your
place of birth to Vrbica Gornja, Montenegro. I had a lot of trouble
with this because there are several towns named Vrbica and it took me
a while to figure out which one was your place of birth.

I did not include the fact that you were born in a field while your
mother was taking care of the cows, but I can add that interesting
fact if you wish.

I have added that Isidora was born in Sarajevo. I do not have a birth
date for her, so please provide one. I always thought that you were
exaggerating as usual when your write that your daughter is the most
famous Serbian writer, but then I found out that your daughter really
is the most famous Serbian writer.

Please check this all out at:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dimitrije_Bjelica

I have not announced or publicized this biography to the chess world,
but I will do so in a few minutes. I was waiting to receive a response
from you before I told the rest of the world about it.

The thing I want to alert you about is that every time I post a chess
biography, certain people come in and vandalize it and try to tear it
apart. The persons who do this especially often are Paul Rubin, who
posts aa PHR, Ralf Callenberg, who posts as Rook_wave, and Louis
Blair, Taylor Kingston, Bill Brock and Neil Brennen. So, as soon as I
post this biogaphy of you they will come in and try to dismantle it.

For example, when Bessel Kok was running for FIDE election, I posted
biographies of every member of his campaign team. These people above
got all of these biographies deleted, thereby helping Kirsan
Ilyumzhinov be re-elected

These people will try to do this to you too and, unfortunately, I will
not be able to defend you when this happens. Therefore I am hoping
that your friends, whom I am CCing above, will watch your biography
and protect it from vandals. I am especially hoping that Goran Tomic
and Bruce Monson will be watching and stop any deletions that these
people might try to make to your biography.

This is getting tiresome. At the risk of incurring g4's wrath and
subsequent accusations of ad hom, let me state that either Sloan is
lying or he is delusional. I've never vandalized a Sloan 'biography',
let alone tried to delete it.

So, as soon as I

Wrong again. (May I write that, g4?)

What nonsense.

These people will try to do this to you too ...


I would try to get someone deleted?!?

not be able to defend you when this happens. Therefore I am hoping

With friends like those....

No need to worry, Neil. If you omit the "g4" part, your response to Scam
(or him imitator) is right on the money.

Blatant plagiarism. It looks like Bjelica even replicates Chernev's
spelling errors ("Grunfeld," "Kostics" -- or did he literally just cut
and paste from Chernev's book?), then adds his own ("Kochnoi"). Bjelica
is often called a "hack journalist"; this strikes me as like saying
Stalin favored centralized government.
