Nov-18-05  TigerPawns: 52. Nb1 is a huge blunder. This was advanced chess - was it Topalov's sense of humour?
Nov-18-05  aw1988: Well, you don't show a sense of humor unless the game is already lost, so... no...
Apr-22-09  tivrfoa: Nb1??? crazyyy
Apr-23-09  WhiteRook48: 52. Nb1??? anything is better than that- except maybe 52. Be2??
Jun-01-09  furrer: This was the an armageddon game because the real match ended 4:4, played without engines.
Jan-19-11  swr: 52. Nb1 is Topalov setting up the pieces back in their starting positions.

  tpstar: This is a great battle for an Armageddon game. I wondered why White fell apart at the end.
