Maybe the first time a player with links to Gameknot has played a World Champion in a competitive match ?

Week in Chess reported it as follows "As a warm up Veselin Topalov played blindfold against Italian Alex Brunetti on May 8th 2007 in Sofia Hall of Grand Hotel Sofia. Alex Brunetii won the prize for "Play like Topalov" that took place during M-Tel Masters. The two players had half an hour each for the game. Topalov won."
