Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-01-03  morphynoman2: A very curious final position. My kingdom for a horse!
Jan-01-03  GregorMendel: That's awesome - the White king marches across the board, and all Black can do is mark time across the back rank until he comes.
Oct-13-04  woodenbishop: Topalov played this game precisely and most positionally... great game!
Oct-18-05  Averageguy: Topalov is like the complete player, tactically strong, superb in the endgame, and as this fine game illustrates, an accomplished strategist too.
Nov-18-15  brimarern: A VERY pretty game played by Topalov! It looked as if I was playing over a game from Chernev's Most Instructive Games book!
