Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-10-06  blingice: One of Topalov's early fantastic attacking games. I had to look at the attack three times to figure out where Mantovani dropped a minor piece, but I finally found it: 42..Nxg2, and then was forced to trade a rook for a bishop. Very complicated, and I'm wondering how far Topalov thought into the attack before he realized it would work.

He reduced everything to an endgame and got Mantovani in a semi-zugzwang.

  technical draw: I can hear the 101 strings orchestra playing soft music as black resigns.
Apr-20-07  mgosk: why did he castle on move 11? isnt B takes N good for black?
Nov-14-15  Arnefish: 11 BxN eliminates blacks strong bishop and opens the g file for whites rook after K to H1.
