  patzer2: In this battle of Super GM heavy weights, this result is not a passive GM draw. The contest is hard fought to the end, with Topalov securing a draw by perpetual against Bareev's Nimzo Indian. Topalov illustrates the value of a queen against an exposed king as a drawing weapon in the end game, securing the draw by perpetual despite being three pawns down.

Note that in the final position, the draw by perpetual check occurs after 44...Qd2+ 45. Kf1 [not 45. Be2 Nd3+ 46. Kf1 Qe1+ 47. Kg2 Qxe2+ letting black snatch the white bishop with winning chances] Qd1+ 46. Kf2 Qd2+ etc.

May-22-05  fgh: A well fought draw.
