  FSR: This is a theoretically important game discussed by IM John Cox in Starting Out: Sveshnikov Sicilian, pp. 118-123. 29...d5! is an improvement on Topalov-Leko, Linares 2005. Both players missed a lot of stuff in this super-sharp game, including (1) 43...f5! "leaves White struggling horribly"; (2) 48.b7 Qa1+ 49.Ra2 Qd4+ 50.Kb5 wins; (3) 52.b7 wins again; (4) 54...g2 wins immediately in light of 55.Qxg2 Bc3+ 56.Ka4 Qb1; (5) 57.Qc2 still left White with winning chances.
