Amazing 6.5 / 7 by Topalov in first RR
The best Bulgarian chess player Veselin Topalov is playing the games of his life in the Chess World Championships in San Luis, Argentina. In the first half of the competition, the Bulgarian grand master won 6 of his first 7 games and drew in the other one. This is a feat no other chess player has ever been able to achieve in the history of the World Championships, which started in 1886.
Bulgaria to pull out of Iraq after December polls
The new Socialist government in Bulgaria has decided to change its plans to pull out all national troops from Iraq as early as possible. The new plan is to wait for the end of this year, which means that our troops would still be there until the end of the general elections set for December 15th, 2005.
Bulgarian Football Makes Breakthrough in Europe
The past week was full of excitement for soccer fans in Bulgaria. Three of the four club teams √ Levski Sofia, CSKA Sofia, and Litex Lovech – which reached the first round of the UEFA Cup managed to qualify for the group stages of the same competition. Not even once before had any Bulgarian soccer club team managed to reach this far in the UEFA Cup, and now we had three qualify at the same. The euphoria in the country was amazing. It even reminded me of the summer of 1994, when the national team got fourth place in the World Championships here in the United States. An interview with one of the best Bulgarian comedians shows a little bit of the excitement that followed the games.
