    Fun trivia for chess fans from Balkans: Mihail Tal visited my country Montenegro in '88 where he won 5 games over grandmaster Bozidar Ivanovic, and they played in a village town "Spuž" with population less than 1.000 residents. That would be similar to a situation if somehow Ronaldo or Mesi would came to visit a small town in an unknown country to play a game of football with a local team. Oh, and Tal spoke my language fluently😂
