The match features six GMs on the UTD side, including UTD board #1 Aleksandar Indjic ,who will be facing IM Nikola Nestorovic. According to UTD Program Director James Stallings, "While UT Dallas has a definite advantage on the top 8 boards, the University of Belgrade has an even greater advantage on the lower 8 boards. They have a 100 point advantage overall per board which makes UT Dallas the underdog. But of course, the games must still be played!"
