"Just finished off an infamous chess player FM Borislav Ivanov without making a move! He absolutely refused to take off his shoes during a search, which according to tournament regulations at Blagoevgrad open was allowed before any round. It was explained to him that refusal would mean a forfeit and a disqualification from the tournament, but he said he wouldnt do it because his socks smell. Hopefully he will have clean socks for his next tournament, if someone else will accept him. In that case i would recommend searching his jacket, which he put aside just before the search ".
