Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-02-04  gadfly: <>, Voiska Margarita and Voiska Margarita(BUL) are one and the same player. Her name btw, is Margarita Voiska. In some tournaments players are listed with their last names at the beginning, so that might have caused the misunderstanding. She has been one of the best Bulgarian female players for more than 20 years and she was board #2 for the Bulgarian team at the Calvia Olympiad.

Apr-03-10  wordfunph: <Dredge Rivers: Bartender, one Margarita!>

lol! happy birthday WGM Margarita!

Mar-21-13  stanleys: She just won the European Women Senior Championship. Congratulations!

She is also a member of the Bulgarian Olympic team since 1980, and won a silver medal at the Thessaloniki Olympiad in 1984.

Mar-26-13  IndigoViolet: We have been watching a 2005 Russian TV 10-part adaptation of <The Master and Margarita> by Mikhail Bulgakov (named by Kasparov as his favourite novel). All we can say is that it's just very, very strange. There's a talking cat in it played by an actor called Semyon Furman. And I lost count of the exposed breasts. But there are parts to it that are very powerful.
