May-22-05  Whitehat1963: A nobody with a mere three games in the database defeats the mighty Topolov in a pretty good game -- even if it was 13 years ago. Who is/was this guy?
Nov-29-08  alexrawlings: He's got 26 games on the database now, and apparently had a peak rating of 2334.
May-09-12  Attacking: 1. He isn't nobody. He is an IM, and is no ordinary character at all. He has got quite a charismatic playing style. You have to see him alive to understand what I am talking about. I have the honour to know him personally. 2. In 1992 the 17-old Topalov was miles away from mighty. Panbukchian's peak rating exceeds 2400, though most of the time lurking 2350-2400. So the pair is quite well matched. If you review Topalov's games in 1992, you will see him playing no better than in this game.
May-09-12  stanleys: <Attacking> It's true.Valentin Panbukchian is a well-known and respected player in Bulgaria. He got his IM title about 25 years ago,played in many national championships.

Of course he has many achievements and I could cite only a few of them: he won the Bulgarian championship (open) in 1994,got a GM norm in Varna/2009, 3rd place in Paris/2010, beating GM David (2616) in the last round
