There are some more sources in Russian if you search for <Юрий Писков>. But I don't understand it good enough to use it. :(

The article where the above picurte is taken from:

Mar-31-14  FICSwoodpusher: I think I have seen this name before. Below is an excerpt from a chesscafe column by Mike Franette on the topic of Nikolay Minev

A big influence in the years 1947-48 was a strong Bulgarian attacking master named Piscov who was originally from Russia and who spent time in Rousse. He enjoyed playing young Minev. “He attacked me with pawns, with pieces, with everything, and at first I was unable to resist. He beat me by scores of 20, 25 to 0. I learned to be more aggressive and to attack him first. My scores gradually improved and I learned a great deal about attacking play.”

The article can be found in the chesscafe archives section: Wanderer
