DOBROV, Vladimir

Apr-06-07  wordfun: This guy is a GM, 61.4% winning is quite good. Does anyone know about GM Dobrov?
Aug-02-12  Firststep2: He is playing Claretiano Tournament, Premier section. Look (click on "Premier")
Jan-14-17  fisayo123: Pretty surprising to get the TATA steel invite which I'm sure he's delighted about. Never heard of him.
