  plang: In the draw Gelfand-Speelman Munich 1992 White had played 17 Qh4; 17 Rd1 was Topalov's improvement which had been mentioned in Speelman's notes to the earlier game. Had Karpov played 22..Rxc8 then after 23 Rd7..Qb6 24 Re1..Rd8 he would have been OK; instead after 22..Qxc8? he ended up in an inferior endgame which he was unable to hold.
