Milan Velimirović
(1952-2013-2023)


On February 25 ten years ago WFCC lost one of its greatest and most popular personalities, Milan Velimirović.

A Grandmaster in Composing and Solving, he was also a writer and editor whose huge project Mat Plus still lives along with his writings and compositions.




Milan was born and lived in Serbia, where he started composing, solving and editing already as a teenager.
At 22 he became the main editor of the chess problem magazine MAT. There, his expert articles and analyzes largely contributed to the sudden rise of the Serbian chess composition.

20 years later, he founded the outstanding magazine Mat Plus (in English) and started several projects under the same name, including softwares Mat Plus Librarian
and Machine Gun (for quick solving competitions). The unique Mat Plus Website (since 2006) keeps entertaining chess problemists, now under the supervision of Borislav Gadjanski.

With philanthropic approach to composition and composers, Milan was the heart of each party. He was performing duties of the judge in composing and in solving, too.

The two-mover above he composed for participants of the European Chess Solving Championship 2008.

As a chess composer Velimirović was oriented to the highly complex and demanding thematic combinations.
Such is the following cyclic change of continuations commented by another great composer Jacques Rotenberg, in English and in French.

Milan’s last book, written with the Finnish composer Kari Valtonen, was Encyclopedia of Chess Problems: Themes and Terms (Chess Informant, 2012).
