Jun-04-14  Ulhumbrus: On 36...Nd2+ 37 Rxd2 Re1+ becomes possible. This suggests changing the move order with 36...Re1 at once eg 37 Rxe1 Nd2+

Jun-04-14  Marmot PFL: Topalov blundered in time trouble. His opponents not his own.
Jun-04-14  ketchuplover: Karjakin ran out of time
Jun-04-14  Chris321: Wow nice! game by Grischuk!,going into my collection straightaway!.,plenty of goodies to learn from this game,a real Najdorf,full blooded beast!
Jun-04-14  fisayo123: Topalove always brings the fun. His opponents always oblige.

  tamar: Topalov never really had anything with his Nd4-f5-h6+ attack.

Grischuk cold-bloodedly let it proceed, then shot back with ...Qf2 and ...f5 forcing Queens off, and leaving the knight stranded on h6.

Jun-04-14  csmath: Bad game by Topalov, he is really not playing good lately.

  WannaBe: Interesting idea by Topalov with 1. Nf3, and instead of the usual ...Nf6, we get ...c5

Trying to convince the World Team to play 1. Nf3 against GM Naiditsch. =)

  Rob Morrison: I'm surprised Topalov got as much the look of an attack as he did because his opening was terrible. Seems to me black is just better after 16 . . . O-O. Instructive example of how not to play the Sicilian with white.
