|Feb-22-09|| ||ontocaustic: you can compare also his record to anand's if you think that topalov would be anything but a joke against anand in a match|
|Feb-22-09|| ||outplayer: My congrats for Mr. Kamsky. He really played like a god in this game. His positional play is gorgeous. I didn't like Topalov's 33...Nb5? It looked a strangely weak move to me when I was seeing the game. Fritz confirmed my evaluation. Toppy is not a defender. I think he should play the Marshall gambit and expect an anti-marshall from Kamsky. A draw would be a benefit. Gata excelled in the ending too.|
|Feb-22-09|| ||Ulhumbrus: At the cost of repeating a question, what does either Rybka or Fritz say if Black declines the pawn offered by 26 b3 and plays 26...a5 instead of 26...Qxc3?|
|Feb-22-09|| ||KamikazeAttack: <Toppy is not a defender.>|
That is his main weakness. He cant sustain pressure for too long.
|Feb-22-09|| ||badest: <KamikazeAttack: <Toppy is not a defender.>|
That is his main weakness. He cant sustain pressure for too long.> LOL! So true ... so true. If he can attack (or at least counter) Topa is really human.
But it takes a lot of skill to put Topa in such a situation...
|Feb-22-09|| ||melianis: <Ulhumbrus> this is neither of those machines, but my computer calculates that on 26...a5 27.Bb2 intending Qe2+Bd3 or Rd2! (depending on the response) gives white a small but comfortable (for Kamsky) lead. If 27...a4 28.Ba3 Rd8 29.Qe2 Ra7 30.Bb4 Kg8 31.hxg6 fxg6 32.Bd3 axb3 33.axb3 Rxa1 34.Rxa1 Bxb3 35.Bxb5 and I can't see how black could have a break in the center. Excellent game.|

Pretty much what Ian Rogers says in the commentary quoted above - if Black doesn't grab the pawn White plays 27.Ba3 leading to similar positions to the game, but without the material solace. 26...a5 in particular seems like a bad idea because it creates a further weakness on b5 (in addition to d6).
|Feb-22-09|| ||Ulhumbrus: After 26 b3!! ( I think that the pawn sacrifice may warrant two exclamation marks by now) Black gets into too much trouble if he accepts the pawn. However if Black declines the pawn on c3, the b3 pawn keeps Black's N on b6 out of play. This suggests moving the N on b6 to a more useful square. On 26...Nb6-d7 27 Ba3 Nc5 the N attacks the e4 pawn a third time and obstructs White's QB. If White becomes then unable to make further headway, that may count as a success for Black, at least from this position.|
|Feb-22-09|| ||freeman8201: go Gata! He handled the situation better than the 1st Ruy Lopez encouter with Topalov. Maybe he was physce out? You know "bad hair day" day!|
|Feb-22-09|| ||Ulhumbrus: After 26 b3 what does Fritz or Rybka have to say if Black plays his N on b6 to c5 eg by 26...Nb6-d7 27 Ba3 Nc5?|
|Feb-22-09|| ||Discerning King: alright!!!! kamsky!!!!|
|Feb-23-09|| ||ChessEscudero: gata kamsky is god!|
|Feb-27-09|| ||WhiteRook48: what do you mean, Gata Kamsky is God?|
|Feb-28-09|| ||I Like Fish: is he...
|Mar-01-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 73. Rg7 seems to be better, but the rh7 move is close enough|
|Mar-13-09|| ||WhiteRook48: as it threatens 74 d7+ Kf8 75 Ne6#|
|Apr-10-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 53...Bxd5? is an error. 53...Qd8 54 Ne7+ Bxe7 55 Rc8 Qxc8 56 Qxc8+ Bf8 was the last chance|
|Jan-30-10|| ||hungry hippo: kamksy just hasn't been the same since this match.|

|Jan-30-10|| ||ruelas007: what the... is the pun supposed to mean?
PD: don`t answer
|Jan-30-10|| ||kevin86: a pretty good game. White sacs a pawn and then wins.|
|Jan-30-10|| ||WhiteRook48: that pun was so catchy (sarcasm intended)|
|Jan-30-10|| ||chillowack: Kamsky played this game very much in the style of Karpov: patient, accurate maneuvering, with each move being a link in a logical chain, leading to the next link, and so on, until in the end he has an overwhelming position.|

Best description that could be given.
This is another game that if knowlegable chess players followed the moves and guessed who played it Karpov would be first pick by no small margin.
|Oct-08-14|| ||SpiritedReposte: Gata's rook owns this game.|
