Ante Saric / Grandmaster

Playing experience

I won 4 Mitropa cups with Croatian national team. I was best board at Mitropa cups in 3 occasions. I won many open and closed international tournaments. I was Croatian team champion 5 consecutive times (member of winning team). Most successful year in my career so far was 2015. That year I was vicechampion of Croatia. In January of 2016. I reached elo rating 2600.

Teaching experience

I have 13 years of coaching experience. I was second to Ante Brkic when he was third on World U12 championship (Oropesa del mar 2000.) I trained Jadranko Plenca who is one of the Croatian most talented players. Last year he was second on European championship U18 (Mamaia 2017.) I colaborated with grandmasters: Ivan Saric, Ante Brkic, Ognjen Cvitan, Sasa Martinovic...Many of my students were champions of Croatia in youth categories: Jadranko Plenca, Mario Muskardin,Zrinka Deur Saric, Borna Cotic, Mato Mican...I also had success as a coach of female players. I trained Kristina Saric,Zrinka Deur Saric, Ana Berke... My wife Kristina Saric was champion of Croatia (Zagreb 2017) under my guidance.

Teaching methodology

When I have new student: first, together we analize deeply his games in the last few years. After I discover his flaws/weaknesses, I am trying to fix it on the long run. I often use literature of the famous chess autors: Dvoretsky, Capablanca, Aagard, Delchev... depend what is the theme of training (opening,middlegame, tactics...).
