Information on <Leonids Dreibergs> from <hemy> here: Vladimir Petrov (kibitz #929)

And in the spring, a person feels a lot of fatigue. For this very reason, I did not participated in this tournament.

Grand master V. Petrov, as well as K. Ozols are busy to finish the University, so they did not played too..."
