|Nov-05-06|| ||ughaibu: Arguably the second most prestigious title but definitely not the most. |
And, just because an expressed view is opinion doesn't mean that it cant be trash.
|Nov-05-06|| ||Sannder: Well, I can imagine being annoyed when my opponent is constantly moving away from the board, especially when I myself am terribly nervous: most important games of my life and all. So there is something to say for Topalov's suspicions, but I don't think there's much to say for the way he conducted himself after he got suspicious. Starting an open letter warfare etc.|
|Nov-05-06|| ||s4life: <ughaibu: Arguably the second most prestigious title but definitely not the most.>|
Now this is trash...
|Dec-05-06|| ||who: <My intention is to show empathy to a man who just lost the most prestigious title after he earned so hard and lost it through a rapid game.> Well there is that whole taking a game on a forfeit bit.|
|Jan-01-07|| ||mack: <davef89: Topalov please make sure u dont blunder, in this match again!>|
|Apr-10-07|| ||ketchuplover: null-null-null?????????????????????|
|Apr-10-07|| ||Bob726: In the notes on the move 12.Ba6 it says if Qxa5 Bb7 Qxd8 rxa1 Qb6 Rxb1+ Kd2 looks good for white. What is the refutaion?|
|Apr-10-07|| ||Bob726: And on the last move, can't topalov play rxe2, if kxe2 then nc3+|
|Apr-10-07|| ||square dance: if ...Rxe2 then white plays Rxd1 with a winning ending.|
|Apr-10-07|| ||Oniyate: Bob726, just from glancing at the position, it seems after kd2, black plays 16..c3+. If 17. Kxc3, black follows w/ Nd5+, winning the queen. So white is forced to play 17. Kc2, or Kd3, black responds with either 17...Rxb2, or Be4+|
|Apr-11-07|| ||Davolni: One thing for sure!!!!
All these allegations, conversations, talks and everything is reminding me of a "mexican soap opera".
Common people...... this is chess....
Chess is "either or" game. It's either black or white, there are no other colors in chess....
Kramnik has +11 score against Topalov,
that says it all ( and I am not talking about current Topalovs performance). To me all those "cable of Elista" articles in Chessbase.com are just waste of time meaningless, useless allegations against world champion.
|Jun-14-07|| ||LIFE Master AJ: This game was the subject of one of my lessons on the WCA website. (http://www.worldchessacademy.com/le...) Its not a real heavy job of annotation, but there are some good links there, so you may want to check it out.|
|Aug-10-07|| ||acm3dibbx: what if... 48.Kh2 Ng5. what will happen? will black gain an advantage? please help me.|
|Mar-30-09|| ||WhiteRook48: how to trap a knight
48...Ng5 does not seem clear, but it does not seem crushing.
|Jul-30-09|| ||WhiteRook48: what the...?|
|May-28-10|| ||LIFE Master AJ: I take back what I said - above. (expanded notes) Please take a look at this web page ... http://www.worldchessacademy.com/le... and tell me what you think.|
|Jun-19-10|| ||timothee3331: Davoni, if you take the score now without rapid and blindfold, it's + 7, which is not so huge after all. And if you compare their last encounters, Topalov clearly has the upper hand. And I'm not even talking about their results in tournament !|
|Jun-19-10|| ||Marmot PFL: Topalov frequently self-destructs.|
|Jun-23-10|| ||timothee3331: <Marmot PFL>, i perfectly agree ! Of course as a Topalov fan, i'm happy when Vesko plays brilliantly but it's a part of his game. You can't take such outstanding risks without sometimes paying. But it's much interesting to self-destruct sometimes and play interesting chess rather than never destroy yourself and, which is more kind of a problem, your opponent, like Kramnik does with his endless draw series. But what is more natural from a man who stole a world championship and whose title is therefore invalid to try to look more WC-like !|

He also caused the Challenger disaster. See the Kramnik page for other atrocities that you might like to know about.
|Nov-10-10|| ||sevenseaman: Very labored.|
|Nov-15-10|| ||talisman: <AJ> surfing late at night ..i really enjoyed your posts. thanks!|
|Jan-19-11|| ||picard: here is actual footage of Kramnik cheating. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Za85...|
|Nov-10-11|| ||master of defence: What´s wrong after 33...Rxc5?
If 34. dxc5 Rc8 35. Nxa5 Rxc5 and black is ok.
|Dec-01-11|| ||HeMateMe: Playing through this endgame, WC match game 1, I kept wondering how Kramnik would win this, up a pawn, but having to baby sit the weak pawn on f2. Then, I remembered this was the game that Topalov blew, the one he could have drawn by repetition, but he tried to force a win.|
Vesco, we hardly knew ya....
