Top seed Ivan Cheparinov (pictured) won the 34th Bulgarian Open Championships on superior tie-breaks after finishing level with three others on a score of 7½/9 points.

While many of his closest rivals took quick draws in the final round Cheparinov fought for a win to take the title and €2,000 of the €10,000 prize fund.
