Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-14-08  Dr. Funkenstein: Zugzwang!
Aug-15-08  ikipemiko: Great final position!!!
Aug-15-08  Madman99X: To come up with a positional crush like this one in a rapid match is extremely impressive. The black bishop completely dominates a knight in the middle of the board and white must simply throw himself on the oncoming lance of Topalov's pieces.
Aug-16-08  Takya Kotov: White can't move knight or rooks. Eventually he will have to move Kh1 when black plays Qf2
Aug-16-08  lopium: <Eventually he will have to move Kh1 when black plays Qf2> He could also play h4 I think, and few moves later try to leave out his knight on f7 but I'm not sure if it would work.
Aug-19-08  Gnappo83: Interesting game until 31.Nxe4?, that is a brave move but completely wrong. Maybe Garcia Jimenez understimated the terrible consequences of 32...Rxc3.

Anyway, the situation is already critical for White after 28...b4! Topalov has got the control of c file and put all his forces against the c3 pawn. Very difficoult to resist, so I understand that you can try something disperate like 31.Nxe4.
