  An Englishman: Good Morning: Not a mere GM draw by any stretch of the imagination. For one thing, both players attacked on the same side of the board, the side where the White King lived. Second, Girl kept offering the a-pawn and the Exchange as sacrifices (both finally accepted). Topalov had to decline most of the offers; e.g., 31...Rb4; 32.cxb4,Rxb4 is much too dangerous. Finally, the silicon monsters will have to determine if White missed a win during moves 37-40. Quite an interesting game.

  ChessHigherCat: 31. Rb1!? is a touch of the old Topalov. I hope he makes a comeback, he's one of my all time favorites.
