Topalov – Sasikiran, Round 10

Live commentary by GM Dimitrov

We witness one of the most balanced and exciting competitions chess has ever seen. Five out of the six participants have chances to win the event. We have been trying to search for a similarly balanced table in past events, but we did not find one. Do you remember a round robin competition, where so many players had chances to win in the last round? If so, please, send us an email.

Expect photos and videos from the playing hall, as well as frequent updates on the other games and interesting events from Grand Hotel Sofia.

Update 1: The last round of Mtel Masters 2007 had a calm start. Once again it was full of journalists, but this time there were no problems. Everybody is in the playing hall or in front of the big screens following the games. You can feel the excitement in the air.
