Oct-16-05  who: After 15...Nxa2 16.Bd5+ Be6 17.Bxa2 Bxa2 18.b3 ...19.Ra1 white is doing just fine.

The WC misses the killer 26...Qg4! followed by ...Bh5 after which the other WC loses at least a knight.

Nothing important, he just became World Champion, and the strongest and exciting player, :-)

Aug-06-16  mandor: The good thing of Topalov is that almost any game is amazing... if he does not sacrifice a pice, he makes an interesting opening move based on deep positional idea.. always creative. Here 3.Nc6 and the whole concept is remarcable.
