In the Bulgarian chess school chess glorious tradition. Nevertheless, in any time in the past, a small country could not boast of having in its ranks two players of World Twenties. Now it has become a reality. Kiril Georgiev was in the first tandem. First major application in the future place in the elite Kiril made in 1983, winning the world championship for young. A year later, he wins already in the adult, not a weak championship in Bulgaria (this success then repeated twice more). Its top reaches the desired mark and Georgiev becomes a welcome international tournaments. His movement up in those years was a steady and measured.
Winning the weak tournaments, in strong competition Cyril played interesting, but the high places still not served. Nevertheless, his reputation grew with the chess strength. Here are just competed at the world championship at Georgieva as not going well and are not going well. In 94-95 years, many expected from Cyril jerk upward, but instead followed the decline. Probably a year earlier Georgiev simply outplayed and lost the freshness, which is in the fight at the highest level is a must. We must pay tribute to the Bulgarian grandmaster - he made the appropriate conclusions and began to play less often, but carefully prepared. Course team competition for Georgieva - it is still holy. Debuting for the national team back in 1984, he still remains one of the major miner of the Bulgarian guards. 'Scouts' from the Bundesliga and not complain at that.
Style Chirila, of course, has undergone changes. He began as a brilliant tactician, missed an opportunity to start a zavarushku on a chessboard. Now he is a typical modern high-class grandmaster, which owns the entire arsenal of chess. Extra confirmation of this - excellent presentation Chirila the traditional tournament in Sarajevo - clear first place! So, at the forthcoming FIDE World Championship Georgiev speak in a slightly unfamiliar role of favorite. Justifiable to Bulgarian grandmaster entrusted to him waiting?
