Apr-19-05  babakova: Im the first to write here, dont have anything worth saying though...
Apr-19-05  aw1988: Some may think of Iordachescu as a veteran like Vaganian, but in fact he is only celebrating his 28th birthday shortly. I remember him being quite the talented junior, don't know much more than that.
