|May-12-03|| ||refutor: topalov plays with great attacking prowess this game |
|May-31-05|| ||notyetagm: Beautiful attacking game by Topalov.|
|Oct-27-05|| ||Dionyseus: Very nice.|
|Apr-16-06|| ||alexandrovm: this is one of last Topalov's wins over Kramnik before a long period of negative results against him. A very nice game where black is sofocated to death here.|
|Sep-04-06|| ||iron maiden: <acirce> Maybe this belongs in the Kramnik-Topalov collection?|
|Sep-04-06|| ||acirce: Yes, certainly does. Thanks.|
|Sep-17-06|| ||Ulhumbrus: Not a convincing opening. 7 Nxc6? gives Black central pawn superiority and Kramnik may have chosen a wrong way to make use of it. He did not manage to advance his f pawn. Instead of 8...e6, 8...g6 may be better, while after 9 Qe2 , 9...Be7 may be better than 9...Nd7.|
|Sep-17-06|| ||plang: During 95-96 they played 3 games with this line; all interesting fighting games ( +1, -1, =1). In Belgrade 1995 and Dos Hermanas 1996 Topalov had played 7 Ndb5 and lost the first and drawn the second.|
|Sep-17-06|| ||suenteus po 147: Whatever happened to the Novgorod double round robin tournaments? They had one every year in the mid to late nineties, but now it seems they don't have them anymore. Loss of sponsorship?|
|Sep-18-06|| ||plang: I assume so. The same thing that happened to Dos Hermanas, Tilburg, Madrid and the other "traditional" annual tournaments. The same that caused Linares to be limited to 8 players rather than the 16 (and then 14, and the 12) player Round Robin.|
We're fortunate we still have Corus.
|Sep-18-06|| ||suenteus po 147: <plang> I see your point. However Dos Hermanas still holds an annual tournament, it's just that it has been an internet tournament since 2000.|
|Sep-18-06|| ||acirce: Novgorod had PCA backing for a couple of years. It was part of their "Super Classics" tournament series in 1995 together with Riga and Horgen. (a Grand Prix circuit; Kasparov won the combined event despite only scoring 50% in Horgen which was immediately following his WCh match against Anand).|
I think they managed with other sponsors for one or two years (correct me if I'm wrong) though.
|Jun-19-09|| ||shakespeare: 16..... Bc6?
has anybody an idea why Kramnik does trades his best piece of the position here?
