|Oct-09-09|| ||twinlark: Are they still butting heads?|
|Oct-09-09|| ||Natalia Pogonina: Blitz mode now. No increments, remember.|
|Oct-09-09|| ||kkshethin: I think black is better. Deep shredder says that 85...Qa1 would be better|
|Oct-09-09|| ||marcwordsmith: <Natalia> with each player having less than five minutes to make all his moves, why are they not simply shaking hands yet? Is there a psychological reason?|
|Oct-09-09|| ||marcwordsmith: welcome back <twinlark>. I take it your children have released you for at least the next six minutes or so.|
|Oct-09-09|| ||moronovich: what a fight !|
|Oct-09-09|| ||Natalia Pogonina: <marcwordsmith: <Natalia> with each player having less than five minutes to make all his moves, why are they not simply shaking hands yet? Is there a psychological reason?>|
Both of them are playing for a win and hoping to outplay the opponent in time trouble. However, it's easier to play this as Black now.
|Oct-09-09|| ||marcwordsmith: draw by perpetual check. there it is.|
|Oct-09-09|| ||chessic eric: ...Rh3 simple|

I liked your comments. You dare. And i like it. You are not vague. That's good.
|Oct-09-09|| ||moronovich: All the best wishes for your motherhood Natalia !|
|Oct-09-09|| ||euripides: An interesting, though occasionally rather static, fight. Are they paid by the move ? |
The timing of Black's kingside counterplay looks important. Radjabov bides his time.
As Anand doesn't play the KID, as far as I know, Topalov might feel he didn't need to hide his preparation here. But it doesn't look as though he had anything very lethal up his sleeve; simply an interesting middle-game plan.
|Oct-09-09|| ||moronovich: It is very likely Topa uses KID as a smokescreen in relation to the upcomming match with Anand.|
If studying and studying KID is keeping Anands seconds ocupied ,consuming time and energy,it would better Topas chances.
|Oct-09-09|| ||Paraconti: Whatever happened to the Topalov of Q4 2005? That Topalov played chess like a God.|
|Oct-09-09|| ||Caissanist: I think Averbakh said it well--"In chess you cannot be a genius forever, only for a short burst."|
|Oct-10-09|| ||Eyal: Radjabov having a hard time staying awake during this game:|
|Oct-18-09|| ||kingsindian2006: with all the passive moves in the middle game, im surprised they didnt draw at around move 35|
