      There is a funny story behind Alexandr's winning the tournament. He posted on his facebook page that he was very surprised to find out that he had to pay an entry fee when arriving in Plovdiv- a very unusual thing for GMs. Maybe it brought him luck :) Mhm, maybe I should volunteer to pay an entry fee at the upcoming Women's Nationals...

     With or without entry fee, I'd like to congratulate the winner and I'm looking forward to seeing the games in the next twik :)
