Oct-22-05  aw1988: Topalov lost...
Oct-22-05  aw1988: Is Qxf6 really the best? gxf6 is, probably... but the maneuver in the game was perhaps not the best. What about Qe2! and if Nxd4 Nxd4 Qxd4 Nf3
Oct-22-05  Karpova: <aw1988: Topalov lost...>

you already noticed that? congratulations!

<What about Qe2! and if Nxd4 Nxd4 Qxd4 Nf3>

Jan-13-06  schnarre: It's curtains for Black in any case!
Jun-12-06  Poisonpawns: Topolovs "immortal"
