|Jul-31-04|| ||mystique.mystique: Wow...nice win by a Filipino grandmaster!!!
nice job GM Torre
|Jun-27-06|| ||harcee sarmiento: <refutor> this is the game i am talking about.|
|Jun-27-06|| ||harcee sarmiento: 14... d4 in other games is always considered.|
|Jun-27-06|| ||harcee sarmiento: 19.Qxb5? why not 19.Ng3.|
|Jun-27-06|| ||harcee sarmiento: after move 23.. the World Champion offerd draw! But the Asai's first GM declined it.|
|Jun-27-06|| ||harcee sarmiento: Topalov win two pieces<38.Rxc3> but the pawn will become a win for Torre.|
|Jun-27-06|| ||harcee sarmiento: 43.e6 hoping black to play 43...fxe6? wher white can get a counterplay by 44.Rg3!|
|Jun-27-06|| ||harcee sarmiento: 54...Qa7! the decisive blow!|
|Aug-26-06|| ||rjsolcruz: torre registered not just another win from a world champion, though toppy is not yet one at the time, but for dear flag and country!|
|Sep-17-08|| ||shintaro go: Topalov's last move was plain oversight. White cannot prevent Qg3+ followed by Rd1 mate. White's bishop is the only piece able to cover the g3 square but it is obstructed by the pawn. Still can't figure out the reason behind the <subtle> 52.. Rd3 that Eugene played. Probably he hoped that by leaving the b-file open, White's Queen will leave the a-file so Eugene can play the brilliant 54..Qa7, which leads to a Topalov oversight 55.Qxc4. Maybe a better try for Topalov would be 55. Qe1 with threat of 56.Qh4+. Anyway, good game by Eugene. I'm glad his only encounter with Topa was a win for the Filipino legend!|
|Feb-06-09|| ||ChessEscudero: A fine example of how good a rook is in the endgame compared to bishop. A nice game by a Filipino GM Eugene Torre.|
|Jun-02-09|| ||Udit Narayan: If black had played 35...Bc5, I probably wouldn't be looking at this game right now. I am glad he didn't and went on to win beautifully!|
|Sep-01-12|| ||torrefan: Don't forget to watch: Bulgaria vs. Philippines, 6th round, 2012 Olympiad!|
Go GM Torre!
|Sep-01-12|| ||The HeavenSmile: After Qc2 (defending Rd1# after Qg3+), black has Qg3+, Kh8 followed by Re3. If white then tries Bd4, then Re1+, Bg1 and Qe3 secures then bishop (with forced mate to follow shortly)|
