The leader in the world chess ranking and former World Chess Champion Veselin Topalov won the super cup in the Chinese city of Nanjing a round before its end, with which he went beyond the magic limit of 2800 ELO rating points.

The award fund of the cup amounts to 250,000 euro of which Topalov will receive 80,000.

His best achievement so far was 2813 ELO rating points in July 2006. Only Gary Kasparov has ever had a higher ELO rating than the Bulgarian chess master.
