  Benzol: A marvellous game, full of cut and thrust.

  Sneaky: Notice that Minchev doesn't even try to use his Halloween Attack flimflammery against the likes of Topalov!

  acirce: Topalov of course was not exactly the same Topalov as today back in 1989 when he was 14. Not even top-1000, says allmighty Chessmetrics.
Oct-27-05  azaris: Why did Topalov even bother to play this patzer who was rated 60 points lower at the time?

  Gypsy: Chessmetrics opinions change. Chessmetrics today opion of 1989-vintage Topalov is : July 1988 rating list -- Rating: 2522, ranked #393 in world, age 13y4m (and ranked #3 all-time among players aged 13y4m).

Minchev is bellow chessmetrics radar.

Nov-03-05  Saruman: 46.-Kc7 is just a brilliant move =)
