  messachess: I don't know the Caro-Kann, but this looks like an awfully promising line for black. Anyone know if this is new?
May-02-08  Riverbeast: The line in not new, but Radjabov's 8. b4 might be.

Cheparinov has recovered nicely from his 0-4 start

  messachess: <Cheparinov has recovered nicely from his 0-4 start> I'd say so.
May-02-08  Inf: I dont know who said that Topa's second could not match or be like him. This is just like Topalov, start the tournament losing and having a great comeback at the end...
May-02-08  hrvyklly: <messachess: I don't know the Caro-Kann, but this looks like an awfully promising line for black. Anyone know if this is new?> The King's Indian Attack against the Caro-Kann was used by Fischer a couple of times, but it doesn't seem too promising for White.

  Gilmoy: 18..c4! already put Radjabov in some trouble. <20.Nd2 Ncb4 21.Qd1 Nd3> [from minasina's link] would be a crushing bind. 20.Nd5 was a fair attempt at complications, but Cheparinov correctly sacked the exchange to get a protected passed pawn on the 2nd, with two benefits: he'll almost certain to get his exchange back (he did), and the slow-retreating Na8 is likely trapped (it was).
May-03-08  kingsindian2006: very dynamic game.. seems like the Bulgarians warm up after 4 to 5 games ..

  ray keene: this is one of the main lines of 2d3 against the caro-stein played it many times and also used b4. whites error seems to be the early nb3 which gets his knight onto the wrong circuit

Danailov needs to pay a top GM to play a 4-game match with Topalov or Cheparinov right before a major tournament starts so that the round 1 game will "feel" like round 5. :-)

May-03-08  depraved: Another top player who liked 2.d3 was Ljubojevic.

David Glueck used to play this a lot as well; we had three games with this in the mid-1980s.
