  Mateo: I don't remember I have ever seen Adams being smashed this way. After 27...Re6, Black controls the open file and the Knight cannot move. The spider was caught in a web.
Nov-12-16  Olsonist: At move 25, Topalov has backed all of White's non-regal pieces onto the first rank. Whenever I see this, I'm thinking bad things will happen. White has no space, his pieces, especially that g1 knight are barely hanging on. And for a finale, Topa does not disappoint.
