Alexandar Indjic and Teodora Injac win Serbian championship

Alexandar Indjic and Teodora Injac are the winners of the 14th Serbian chess championship. Two 10-player round-robins (open and women) were held in hotel “Fontana” in Vrnjačka Banja and stretched over December 07-13. Both became three-time national champions with Teodora taking her third title in a row. Alexandar repeated his success of 2014 and 2018.

 

Playing no-compromise chess throughout the event Indjic made just two draws and despite losing two games finished a half-point ahead of Robert Markus, Alexandar Kovacevic, and Ivan Ivanisevic who tied for second. In the final round, Markus and Kovacevic had a theoretical chance to catch up with the leader but both settled for quick draws with Black.
