Alleged 'Cheater' Kicked Out from Bulgarian Chess Federation
Controversial Bulgarian chess player Borislav Ivanov has been excluded from the country’s Chess Federation.
Numerous allegations have emerged over the past months that Ivanov, who surprisingly won top prizes in chess competitions across Europe, has been cheating.
However, the allegations are yet to be conclusively proven.
Last week, FIDE came up with a statement saying it is “closely following the developments of the story” with regards to the 25-year-old Bulgarian.
FIDE said it was "aware of the damage caused by this unfortunate incident" and was "now preparing a whole system of measures against all kinds of cheating".
Earlier in December, Ivanov was ejected from the Navalmoral de la Mata tournament in western Spain after players claimed he had used devices hidden under his shirt and inside his shoes.
Ivanov has strongly denied cheating on a number of occasions.
