|Nov-04-07|| ||Confuse: wow no one responded to my comment. Anyway... that tripled pawns is really cool ; ) i wonder if theres a game with more then 3 pawns in a row like that?|
|Nov-04-07|| ||pacelli: You shld see Fischer-Benko, Candidates 1959. Check out the final position where Benko gets tripled 'island' pawns while Fischer's remaining pawns hasn't moved. It's a position that will bring tears to anyone who appreciates beauty!|
|Feb-23-09|| ||tommy boy: wow, great play. I revealed this player Grigor Minchev very soon but he is one of the most imaginery guys in chess, fearless. Check his Haloween gambit games and you'll see that|
|Jan-10-14|| ||offramp: So he is imaginary, not a real player and 8 years old.|
|Jan-10-14|| ||al wazir: 43...Re3 looks like an easier way to win.|
|Jan-10-14|| ||Aware: Topalov stays getting masterpieced.|
|Jan-10-14|| ||morfishine: A hypnotic, fascinating game! If Minchev is imaginary, Black must be somebody, perhaps its Nezhmetdinov Rashid Gibiatovich Nezhmetdinov coming back from the dead for one last game|
|Jan-10-14|| ||HeMateMe: I second Sneaky's reference to "The Game of the Century", that was my first thought when I played through this.|
|Jan-10-14|| ||offramp: ...And I third it as game of the century.
Amazing to see Topalov staying get masterpieced.
|Jan-10-14|| ||goodevans: White aims at getting counterplay with <32.Nd3> followed by <33.Qg1> but this ends up costing him R+B+N for R. Maybe damage limitation with <32.Bd3> would have worked better.|
|Jan-10-14|| ||kevin86: The rook and bishops dominate and the trip pawns add to the charm.|
|Jan-10-14|| ||adamico: How can this not be one of Minchev's notable games?|
|Jan-10-14|| ||waustad: It hadn't made enough collections. That will probably change after today.|
|Jan-10-14|| ||dumbgai: Maybe it was Borislav Ivanov, just a one year old baby with access to Deep Thought version 0.01.|
|Jan-10-14|| ||Richard Taylor: 21 Bc2 looks like a weak move.|
|Jan-10-14|| ||HighestUnrated: Topalov could have returned the Queen to ease out the attack a bit.
32. Qxd8+ Kxd8 33. Rd1+ Ke8 34. Be4
|Jan-10-14|| ||ChemMac: Interesting that almost EVERY game by Minchev listed in the chessgames site is a win for him! Also; apart from this supposed Topalov game, all the opponents are, to me, unknown names. Has this Minchev ever played in a tournament where one can find the details? Also; who sent in his games?|
|Jan-10-14|| ||RedShield: Oh dear, if the game and Minchev prove to be fakes, what will Urcan say?|
|Jan-10-14|| ||lemaire90: What a fabulous game !|
|Jan-11-14|| ||Richard Taylor: It doesn't matter of course, like that, who was it, Adams-Torre (?). masterpiece showing the back rank mate threat and beautiful series of offered Q sacs etc|
Topalov was (and not doubt still is) an amazing player...but anyone can lose in such complex positions.
|Jan-11-14|| ||dumbgai: <Richard Taylor> Yep Adams-Torre had white offering about 6 consecutive queen sacs to get a back rank mate. Black ended up resigning when taking the queen could no longer be avoided. The fact that it was analysis from a previous position in the game, rather than the actual game continuation, doesn't diminish the beauty and complexity of that game in my mind (of course, others may disagree).|

It was supposedly a training game and took place during play. It could well have. In a book that includes this famous game, which I have known for about 50 years, it simply says it is advisable to play such games where there are witnesses. That, hopefully would have cleared it all up.
I think it doesn't matter, but I think myself it was played as it is not so hard to see those moves (they might have tweeked it after the game - remember that Alekhine did that with many of his supposed brilliancies. Especially simuls and blindfold games he wrote down the most beautiful moves! But even that is apocryphal. It doesn't matter, it just shows how we are all human. It is very human to show off, so to speak. Also many of those things are so beautiful one might think: "Well, God, you bastard, let me have this one, everything else in my life has been a fock up. Let at least have THIS small piece of pathetic joy..."
|Jan-11-14|| ||Richard Taylor: Of course, getting back to this game, I suppose someone has checked out anagrams of Minchev's name. He might be one of those unfortunates who, even if he is DNA tested to be who he is, no one now believes he is how he is!! |
C'est la vie!
|Nov-01-14|| ||Moszkowski012273: 32.Qc2... should draw.|
|Feb-01-15|| ||thegoodanarchist: Wow! First time in my life that I have seen tripled pawns win. Amazing!|
