|Apr-25-08|| ||dx9293: Cheparinov is sacrificing all of his "stuff" for Topalov. That explains his recent poor results, though I agree 0-4 is absolutely horrid!|
|Apr-28-08|| ||Billy Vaughan: Hey, Cheparinov is no longer last place. Two wins in a row.....definitely picking up the pace.|
|May-02-08|| ||yalie: make that three wins .. and counting. He beat Radjabov today.|
|May-08-08|| ||Billy Vaughan: Won his first game at M-Tel Masters.|
|May-10-08|| ||Billy Vaughan: Cheparinov's voice is really high: http://www.mtelmasters.com/en/video...|
|May-18-08|| ||Billy Vaughan: 4th at M-tel. Did anybody notice that he did exactly the same in both round robins?|
Lost to Ivanchuk both times
Lost to Topalov both times
Tied Radjabov both times
Tied Aronian both times
Beat Bu both times
|May-19-08|| ||diabloprancer: <Billy Vaughan: Cheparinov's voice is really high> Yeah, that surprised me when I saw the video. That combined with the petty Nigel Short incident makes Cheparinov seem a rather girly whiner. |
|May-19-08|| ||Rubion: Actually Topalov's voice is fairly high pitched and whiny as well. You don't think Dainalov might of .... no surely not.|
|May-19-08|| ||Open Defence: well they could always join the boys choir if so....|
|May-21-08|| ||Billy Vaughan: Maybe it's a Bulgarian thing? You know how people from different regions speak differently.....like, even besides accents, a Briton generally speaks at a higher pitch than an American. Perhaps in Bulgaria they talk really high!|
Though Chepa's voice is still unusual......his voice is around middle C; most girls I know talk lower :p

|May-21-08|| ||MichAdams: It's all to do with hormones in the womb or something. Chepa should take a shot of HGH.|
|May-21-08|| ||Billy Vaughan: <sallom89> That HAS to be Topalov's chessgames picture ;)|
|May-21-08|| ||sallom89: <Billy Vaughan> why not? it looks awesome!|
i wanted it to be my avatar a while ago though.
|May-22-08|| ||wallytherhino: If you look at his profile picture it becomes a perfect endorsement for Coca-Cola.|
|May-22-08|| ||WarrenHam: Cheparinov's voice is unnaturally high, Topolav's just high. Bulgarian Ari Leschnikoff was known to sing high f without falsetto. Cheparinov has a male alto voice. I know a researcher Toufik M., whose voice is even more extreme. Would be interesting to hear a doctor's explanation.|

Damn, I have trouble with F the octave down! It would be fascinating if Chepa got vocal training; with his high notes and airy tone, he really would sound a lot like a girl or young kid.
|May-22-08|| ||Augalv: When I listened Cheparinov por the first time I was kind of shocked.|
|Aug-11-08|| ||Shadarshin: <Billy Vaughan: Maybe it's a Bulgarian thing?>|
NO. I don't think they sound as bad in Bulgarian, maybe it's the way they learn and speak English. But definetely not all Bulgarians are like that; some have very deep voices.
|Aug-11-08|| ||m00natic: <<Shadarshin> some have very deep voices>
yeah, for example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jhI...|

|Jan-15-09|| ||bharatiy: All the Chepa fans shuld have a look at this
|Feb-21-09|| ||spreadsanity: Cheparinov's voice:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dR2J...|
Alan Partridge: "One more thing, are you a boy or a girl?"
Cheparinov: "I'm a boy!"
Alan Partridge - "Really?"
Cheparinov: "My name is Ivan!"
Alan Partridge - "It could be Ivanna! Well you sound like a girl!"
Cheparinov- "I'm a boy and my name is Ivan!"
|May-03-09|| ||WhiteRook48: that's dumb!
I only know this guy from his forfeit for refusing to shake hands with Short.
