EK: Vasja Pirc (don't know why some sources call him Vajda) was only 8th reserve but got to play anyway in the Interzonal. Did Ekstroem, Bernstein and Alexander really all decline to participate? I know that players (or their federations) had to cover all the expenses by themselves, and that is why many declined, but would this really be an issue for Ekstroem? [Ref. BI072028]
EK: Why did Bondarevsky decline to play in the Candidates? [Ref. BI072028]
