Note: Niksic or Vinkovci are not printed in bold, despite having one particular famous tournament, they did have a *series* of (further) events, but not of world-class status.

Bosna, held in Sarajevo, is played today as an Open tournament of rather regional status.

The Vidmar Memorial, Slovenia, sometimes was organized as a pure national competition.
