According to our reporter, Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu had the best display among the chess players. GM Ivan Cheparinov, who entered later from the bench, scored a fantastic goal the same second the referee marked the game end. Bellow is the video of Veselin Topalov playing chess with H. Iovov, the Levski striker and a member of the Bulgarian national team. The game ended with a draw, clearly breaking the Sofia rule :)
