Phaedo: Obviously I meant Qc8!
 
   Feb-26-09 Topalov vs Kamsky, 2009 (replies)
 
Phaedo: I might go with 23...Ra6 24.Qxb7 Rd6 25.dxe6 Rxd1 26.Rxd1 Bxe6. At least Kamsky can't lose that.

Phaedo: I think Topalov's strategy in playing 31...Qd2 and 32...Nb4 was to bring up complications for Kamsky who didn't have a whole lot of time on the clock. He had at least a draw in hand the whole time. That's not bad strategy.

Phaedo: Now do we see why 21... Rc8+ (the computer move) was superior to the immediate Re8? With the white king on b1, Black would now have the option or threat of Rd2. White would have to waste a tempo to defend. I think it would help.

Phaedo: The purpose of 23...f6 seems to have been to make room for the black queen to return to defend the queen side, but now Kramnik can activate the LSB by Bf1 and the black knight looks awkwardly placed after ...a6.

Phaedo: Can't White play e4 and then push his king forward to e3 and d4? Now Black can't play Nc5 with check. I may be missing something, but it seems to me that Nc5 doesn't work without giving check.
