Veselin Topalov grabbed the M-Tel Masters title for the second time in a
row on Sunday, with a win over France's Etienne Bacrot, reported Sofia News
The Bulgarian hero reached the tournament title in the 42th turn when Bacrot surrendered. With his fourth victory in the M-Tel Masters Topalov banked 6.5 points - the same result that brought him the title in 2005 as well.
American Gata Kamsky, who had evened his points with Topalov in the previous round, tied with Russia's Peter Svidler, thus clearing the Bulgarian for the title.
The Ukrainian genius Ruslan Ponomariov drew on the 53rd move with the Indian veteran Viswanathan Anand as well.
The final standings after the tenth (last) round are:
1. Veselin Topalov - 6.5 pts
2. Gata Kamsky - 6
3. Viswanathan Anand - 5.5
4. Peter Svidler - 5
5. Ruslan Ponomariov - 3.5
Etienne Bacrot - 3.5
Topalov will receive his trophy from Bulgaria's president Georgi Parvanov later in the evening.
The M-Tel Masters tournament, ranked 20th category of FIDE, was held in Bulgaria for the first time in 2005. Vesselin Topalov is the only person who has dominated the tournament so far.
