|Apr-24-11|| ||BLarsen1967: Here's a nice pic
Iva V. placed 5th in the Bulgarian Ch.(w) 2011,scoring 7 out of 11
|Dec-26-11|| ||waustad: She's playing in Reggio Emelia starting tomorrow.|
|Apr-25-12|| ||waustad: She's now +5 -0 =0 in the Burgarian women's championship. Not a bad start.
|Oct-14-12|| ||waustad: I noticed that she's played in France in the Condom Open 2008. Perhaps that is why they used to be called "French letters."|
|Dec-20-12|| ||waustad: She's playing in the Zadar Open now.
The good news is that she beat the Croatian GM Bojan Kurajica (if he's in the database here, it's spelled differently I think) in the first round. The bad news is she went +1-4=0 for the next 5 rounds, losing more than the almost 12 elo she picked up in the first round. http://chess-results.com/tnr86543.a...

|Apr-25-13|| ||waustad: Congratulations on winning the Bulgarian Women's Championship!|
|Apr-26-13|| ||waustad: I submitted the game against Darina Sirkova. If they post it, a good pun might be something like Pin Cushion, though that has probably been used before.|

|Sep-25-14|| ||waustad: Congratulations on achieving your final IM norm at Monastir. Now she needs to pick up some rating to get the title.|
|Sep-29-14|| ||waustad: Her win over Judith Fuchs in the FBL is quite instructive. White sticks her queen on h6 which looks great for the attack, but it turns out that she winds up effectively a piece down in the center, where the action really happens. http://de.chessbase.com/post/auftak...|
|Nov-04-14|| ||waustad: She has made a good start at the Durres International Open 2014, with 3/4 including a draw with Zdenko Kozul. She is getting close to the 2400 live rating that would clinch the IM title. According to her FIDE card she's at 2380 and chess-results has her gaining 12 pts so far.|
