|May-18-06|| ||jhoro: <why did anand give up the h pawn?> in order not to loose a piece to 50... Ke5|
|May-18-06|| ||yogi1986: this game is beyond my comprehension, but Topolov has made so much progress his pawns are all passed his king and pawns are further advanced and anands lone pawn can't move. That's pretty amazing|
|May-18-06|| ||chessbond: Anand can kiss this game good bye! now.|
|May-18-06|| ||flonks: sumitro: I was asking a question, not saying that I think that Topalov did a stupid move, so don't feel attacked.|
Besides, I am still interested in the answer, if somebody knows it.
|May-18-06|| ||yogi1986: Why Kg7? well it advances the king and as the game continuation shows the knight check only seems to help black.|
|May-18-06|| ||sheaf: this is amazing play by topalov. anand doesnt belong there..|
|May-18-06|| ||Open Defence: <anand doesnt belong there..> wow..you coulda fooled me.. really?? he's been a top 3 GM for a long time now....even in the days Kasparov and when Kramnik was in good form|
|May-18-06|| ||flonks: sheaf: anand won the tournament in Wijk against topalov. I don't think he is a kindergardener....|
|May-18-06|| ||cannibal: <sheaf: anand doesnt belong there..>
Yeah, he's just still ahead of Topalov, and probably still in 2nd place. Clearly doesnt belong there. ^^|
|May-18-06|| ||Open Defence: the thing is that all three pawns are on one wing so the pieces just might have a chance to hold them along with the but if the Black can create enough threats it could force White into a lost position...|
|May-18-06|| ||pankajdaga: Some people here just attack the players without having a dime of understanding about the game.|
|May-18-06|| ||sumitro: flonks: My comment was not meant for you - more towards people like sheaf. Sorry if I offended you.|
|May-18-06|| ||pankajdaga: <sheaf> I have hardly ever seeny ou post anything about the game. All you do is post rubbish. Waste of bloody bandwidth, really.|
|May-18-06|| ||Open Defence: so far Topalov's judgement of the position has seemed a little better though Anand has found some nice defensive resources to still hold this... can he keep Black's tied down to the a file ?|
|May-18-06|| ||hitman84: I read Rybka is weak in endings...
according to Vasik.
|May-18-06|| ||jhoro: i think pretty much all the players at mtel masters are very very strong this year|
|May-18-06|| ||Open Defence: the thing about endings is that the conventional ideas of value of pieces / pawns / space / tempo all come to naught... it all depends on the position a gain or loss in tempo for example can decide the game!|
|May-18-06|| ||you vs yourself: <45.Nd4? For better or for worse, one should have taken on d5. In my opinion, the ending is more likely to be drawn, however, holding it is a very challenging task. |
45...Kg7 46.Bxd5? Exhausted by difficult defense, Vishy overlooks simple tactics. He could still destroy the d5-pawn by 46.Ne2, even if with a loss of a tempo.> Sakaev on e3e5.com
|May-18-06|| ||Aiuta: clocks... Anybody ?|
|May-18-06|| ||sumitro: It will be hard for Topalov to advance his king-side pawns - g4 is well guarded.|
|May-18-06|| ||hitman84: <Open Defence>Yes I too feel the R is somewhat tied down..|
I still have this feeling White can draw this.
Vishy is stopping the most important f5.
I feel the pressure is on Topa to win this..
|May-18-06|| ||flonks: Since White needs to move the knight, the f and g pawns should be able to advance. The B can't take them.|
|May-18-06|| ||sumitro: I don't see any caving in - it seems distinctly drawish to me - any computer analysis available?|
|May-18-06|| ||mukeshjld: now topa can move his f pawn
|May-18-06|| ||bgkuzzy: topa wins. its over!!|
