|Apr-22-17|| ||Marmot PFL: Guess white didn't want to castle to the open h file but that was probably the better option.|
|Apr-22-17|| ||Imran Iskandar: Brilliant Topa!|
|Apr-22-17|| ||Steve.Patzer: Does 23. Qxe7 win?|
|Apr-22-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: <Steve.Patzer: Does 23. Qxe7 win?>|
Good question. 23. .dxe3+ 24. Bxe3 Rxc2+ King moves 25. Nxe7 wins for black but 23..dxe3+ 24. Qxe3 Nxe3 25. Rxb2 wins for white unless I'm missing something.
Another possibility is 23. Qxe7 Rxc2 24. Qe3 for example dxe3+ looks very strong for black (he's already got a R + B + pawn and a lot of play for the Q)
|Apr-23-17|| ||Fanques Fair: What a strike !!! 22-...Rxb2 !! is a fantastic move. |
By the way, if 23-Qxe7, Rxc2, it seems there´s no good reply for White. His queen is attacked, his bishop will fall and any move by the queen seems weak. For example, 24-Qd6, dxe3+ , 25-Kg3, exd2 , 26-Rd1, Re8 and White can resign.
Brilliant game from Topalov, like in his good old days.
|Apr-23-17|| ||drtulio: Wait a second: how about 23-Qxe7 Rxc2 24-Qe4 ???|
|Apr-23-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: <drtulio: Wait a second: how about 23-Qxe7 Rxc2 24-Qe4 ???>|
24.Qe4 dxe3+ and then Rxe2+
|Apr-23-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: or 24...Rxe2+ followed by dxe3|
|Apr-23-17|| ||mistreaver: I am of opinion that Topalov's 16... d4? was premature.
Rado could have replied 17 e4! and after 17... 0-0 18 0-0 Rfe8 19 f3 White has a nice position:

Instead, 16... g5!?, quietly improving the position, might have been more appropriate 17 Rc2 Kf8!? 18 0-0 Ng4 19 h3 Nge5
And I think here White is only slightly better:

Kudos to Topalov for forcing playing brave moves that set serious problems to Wojtaszek. And of course, that combination is really stunning.
I have analyzed the game in greater detail on my blog: http://www.chessentials.com/vugar-g...
