  Honza Cervenka: Nice game. White should have inserted 37.Ng6+ before Rxc6. In final position after 50.Qc4 black wins easily by 50...Kg6 unpinning the Knight f6.

  plang: 11..a4 was new; 11..d6 was played in Tal-Bronstein Tallin 1981 (drawn). After 17 Qc2..c5 Black started to take over the initiative; Adams recommended 17 cxd..exd 18 Nf5..Nf8 19 Bxf8..Rxf8 (19..Kxf8? 20 Qg5 wins) with an unclear position. 26 Bxb6..Qc6 27 Bd4..Nxg3 would not have been a viable option for White; also a move later 27 Bxb6..Nxg3 28 hxg..Qxg3 would also have been bad for White. Topalov pointed out a quicker win for Black with 35..Nc3! 36 Rxc3..Re2 37 c6..Qxh2+ 38 Kf1..Rae8 39 Qd5..Bc8 40 g4..Bxg4 41 c7..Re1+ mating. Not one of Adams more well known games but a nice example of his strong positional style.
