Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-08-06  Bobak Zahmat: Topalov pushes Anand, but he fight backs. Nice tactics.
Dec-29-08  percyblakeney: The second game between Anand and Topalov, Anand defends well in a difficult position where 33. ... Qxb5 could have made it even tougher for white. Madrid 1993 was Topalov's first big success, he was ranked 7th of the ten participants but shared first with Anand and Kramnik, ahead of among others Salov and Polgar.
May-02-09  WhiteRook48: after 38...Kg8??!! what happens?
Jun-16-09  Abdooss: <WhiteRook48> <after 38..Kg8??> 39.Nf6+! K moves 40.QXR white is a piece up and secures the Knight too!
