Nayderov, Russia: “My advice is the following – confront stronger opponents on the lists more often”
I liked Battle of the Nations-2014 held in Croatia. But we lacked teams that failed to attend the event in Trogir as they had gone to another tournament. I hope that in the future, this problem will disappear (and we will remember it as an unfortunate misunderstanding), and we will participate in the World Championship […]

The marshal has to pay special attention to prohibited actions, i.e. he/she should know all […]
