Jul-17-08  Hesam7: The more time passes Topalov's 12.Nxf7 seems more like a one time surprise weapon that is objectively incorrect.

In this game black is more than 200 points higher rated though, and it isn't in the opening white goes wrong, engines think for example 25. Nf5 is very strong (exf5 26. Bf3 Bxf3 27. Qxf3+ followed by mate in 6 is the by far worst possible line for black).

Jul-17-08  Hesam7: After the first game where Topalov first played 12.Nxf7, the knight sacrifice has been played 3 times and the results have been 2 wins for Black and a draw.
