  GrahamClayton: Delchev is another player who has had to forfeit a game due to a ringing mobile phone, with a forfeit against Stuart Conquest at the 2009 European Team Championship in Novi Sad, after playing 1.d4.

  DrNyet: Delchev is providing live text commentary at Chessbomb today to Radjabov-Carlsen (Gashimov Memorial, in Shamkir, Azerbaijan). Must say I'm impressed, including by his command of English.

I often find it more satisfying to follow this kind of commentary rather than that of multiple analysts/chatters.

  PhilFeeley: An interesting position from a game not here (neither is the white player, surprisingly):

Deglmann, L(2340)-Delchev, A(2633)
OIBM, 2014.10.27


click for larger view

It must have been satisfying getting such a position against a strong player. So who is Deglmann? And does the win start with Rdh1? (Unfortunately the double-rook sacrifice doesn't work as black interposes the bishop on h2 after the queen goes to h1, giving black enough time to take the g6 pawn).

  PhilFeeley: Actually, the double-rook sac does work, as Qh1 is check and the bishop doesn't give black time to take g6. White must have been ecstatic with this win.

The game actually ended with the first rook check:
