Jan-19-06  mlotay: BOOM SHAK-A-LAK - I love this guy, what a quality name!
Jan-19-06  Stefan Lukke: I would like to see a win in under 25-30 moves, although I think Topolov will win I do not have a personal favourite between these two.
Jan-19-06  SEMENELIN: if there would be a 25-30 moves in this match then whoever wins with this match have a chance to attain fame and glory.
Jan-19-06  david88: Veselin is a girl's name.

Jan-19-06  p.k.: veselin is a man name, veselina is a girl name!
Jan-19-06  controlaltdelete: any thoughts about the opening? Im predicting a Sicilian, dont know which variation though
Jan-19-06  chesswonders: <thunderhrom: prediction: white will play to win...black will play to draw...>, well that can't be a prediction. That's a fact!
Jan-19-06  Petrosian63: Topalov always goes for the win!!!

It's his style.

Jan-19-06  david88: The old chess is dead. All the proffessional games are rigged, pre-arranged and rehearsed with the help of computers. I'll own ever play one type of chess- fischer random.

Jan-19-06  Jonas Bylund: <bobby, is that you?> there is always some nut trying to sneak in a suspicion that he might be Fischer...
Jan-19-06  k0mi: <keypusher: bobby, is that you?> LOL!! :DDDD
Jan-19-06  Ezzy: <controlaltdelete: any thoughts about the opening? Im predicting a Sicilian, dont know which variation though> The Ruy Lopez variation! :-)
Jan-19-06  LoFarkas: Veselin a unique name? Google retrieves 220000 hit for a search of Veselin that do NOT contain "topalov". And, of course, that's not counting the cyrillic entries...
Jan-19-06  Jonas Bylund: Wow this line is not wise to play against topa... then again what line is ;)
