Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-11-16  Ulhumbrus: The commentators indicated at that one point Topalov missed a continuation which would have enabled him to defend the g6 square with his knight by the sacrifice ...Nf4!! One sequence given by the computer - and it may have been the one given by the commentators as well - goes 30... Qf5 31 Kh2 Qe5 32 Rg2 Rf1 33 Qxc6 Nf4!! - covering the point g6 even if by a sacrifice - 34 gxf4 Qxf4+ 35 Rg3 Rf2+ 36 Kh1 Qxg3 and now 37 Qg6+ comes too late to save the game
