Jan-07-13  theodor: Dear trainer (of the chess team of the institute of architecture and civil engeneering in Sofia - 1971 - 74 ), do you remember having beaten me twice, playing blind against me - in Varna, during the bulgarian university championship? During the second game, I awaked you a coupple of times, for asking your move! I wish you all the best, trainer!
