Alojzije Jankovic (1983) is a grandmaster and FIDE trainer from Croatia. In 2010 he shared first pl ace in the Croatian National Championship, was national champion in 2015, shared third place with Croatia in the European Team Championships 2017 and played for Croatia in the Olympiad. He won several international tournaments and also hosts weekly the broadcast 'Chess commentary', Croatian national tv, third channel. This is his second book for Thinkers Publishing, after his successful co-edition with GM Z. Kozul on the 'Richter Rauzer Reborn' updated version 2019.

By going through the chapters of my book, you will get acquainted with my way of grandmaster type thinking. I can assure you of one thing: there are better and weaker grandmasters, but you won't find a GM who is playing without ideas or, let's say, without his way of thinking! As you will find out, I am basically trying to detect the problem or goal of the position and then I am starting to scan factors which can lead to the solution. That process you will find in many examples in the book.

GM Alojzije Jankovic, April 2020.
