Topalov had to play 26.Kg1 when all Andrew has is a draw. This was Topalov's only lost (Andrew at the time was an I.M. - I say 'at the time' because I expect him to be a GM in the future.)

P: 20 W.14 D5 L1.

In one of draws an elderly player resigned saying he was feeling a bit unwell. Topalov refused the resignation and offered an accepted draw.
