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  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  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 ;)
