Borislav Ivanov back to chess, and back to being banned

The alleged cheater Borislav Ivanov is back. Last week the 25-year-old Bulgarian FM started to play an international open tournament again, in Navalmoral de la Mata, Cacéres, Extremadura (Spain). He started to beat grandmasters and was subsequently expelled from the tournament after round 6, but the organizers did give him back the 40 euro entry fee and another 50 euros “compensation”.
