Borislav (Bora) Kostić was a strong chess master from Yugoslavia (now Serbia). During 1923-6 Kostić had been traveling all over the world, producing plenty fine chess exhibitions, from Siberia to Australia. Indonesia was no exception.

Two games from his simultaneous exhibitions are presented here. The first game was between him and A Emens played at Bandung, West Java. The second one was against HCD de Böck. The event was held at Klaten, a city in Central Java. Kostić won 40 games, lost 2 games (to Oeding & A Emens) at Bandung. We have no further information for the Klaten event.
