I began working with Goran in 1999 while I was preparing for the Junior World Championship in Oropesa del Mar, Spain and shared a 6-12 place up to twelve years. I had previously won the European Championship.
My experience in working with Goran as my instructor is positive. His work quality and access to his students made a long lasting and positive impression on me and my family.
He has the ability to openly and professionally work with his students (which is most important in working with young players.) As proof of this, many of his students have earned international titles and have become members of national teams.
As a player, Goran is known to have a solid and rigid style of playing. He has a great positional understanding and that is permanent chess knowledge that he shares with his students.
