   Oct-11-06 Kramnik - Topalov World Championship Match (2006) (replies)
 
Alyosha: <PeerGynt> The mystery GM in question was Kasimdzhanov. Morozevich never came out publicly accusing Topalov of cheating, whereas Kasimdzahnov made very clear insinuations of it.

Alyosha: Przepiorka is best remembered for his compositions, as he was a brilliant problem composer. I'll try to track down some of them and post them here in a few days. (can anyone tell me how to put a chess diagram in the post?)
 
   Feb-24-06 Smirin vs Kasparov, 1998 (replies)
 
Alyosha: It does look like he was toying with him, doesn't it? :) Although it's also possible that he kept making those knight checks to stall a bit while he focused on one of the other games that was giving him more trouble. I was fortunate enough to watch this game when it was played in ...

   Feb-23-06 Topalov vs Radjabov, 2006 (replies)
 
Alyosha: Radjabov seems to do better with Black when playing against the very best. He has wins now against Kasparov, Anand, and Topalov -- all with the Black pieces!
 
   Feb-22-06 Aronian vs Topalov, 2006 (replies)
 
Alyosha: <truthhurts: It reminds me Aronian not resigning against Van Wely at Corus.> This comment betrays a fundamental lack of endgame knowledge; Topalov's defensive task was not so simple, and he had to defend very accurately to secure the draw. Any top GM would have played on ...
 
   Feb-21-06 Morelia-Linares (2006) (replies)
 
Alyosha: Thank you Jim :)

Alyosha: <tamar> Very interesting observation.
