MTal: tgoller: Oops. I meant Topalov-Shirov could have a decisive result, <not that the game will somehow decide the tournament result.> unless topalov wins and gets to +3 in round 4; then it might be san luis all over again.
 
   Oct-06-06 Kramnik vs Topalov, 2006 (replies)
 
MTal: "If so, then Kramnik's loss in this game 8 can be attributed to those despicable things that are going on in this match." It can be best attributed to Topalov's new tactic in games 7 and 8: rapid-fire moves = no bathroom breaks for Kramnik. Expect to see more of that tomorrow.

MTal: Dear Thess, Some Bulgarians may use the silliest and most offensive words against Kramnik. Or against you. That does not give you the right to offend the whole Bulgarian people. Please drown your anger and sorrow in some uzo instead of urinating sulpur acid on the occasion of ...
 
   Oct-03-06 Topalov vs Kramnik, 2006 (replies)
 
MTal: Artin, Polgar should know about two sides, because she is smart, articulate, and unbiased. She should also know about the Holocaust, as her family happens to be Jewish. Your comparison is utterly without merit, and really offensive to Holocaust victims. Topalov=Hitler??? You call ...
 
   Oct-03-06 Kramnik - Topalov World Championship Match (2006) (replies)
 
MTal: "Stevens: <"Topalov should never have gone to Russia," one internet forum note read. "If we win, we will have beaten the whole of Russia."> what nob wrote that?!" Basically, Susan Polgar and Garry Kasparov, to name two... That also explains Kramnik's arrogance and his decision ...
 
   Sep-25-06 Topalov vs Kramnik, 2006 (replies)
 
MTal: A few observations: - Topalov is playing superior positional chess (that could be decisive in games to come). - Kramnik is not easily tricked by tactics. - Kramnik plays superior endgame (that could be very decisive in games to come). - Kramnik is more stable psychologically. Maybe ...

MTal: Someone has to tell Topalov that no matter how much he hates it, draw is a legitimate outcome of the game, especially with the title on the line. He plays as if it's either a win or a loss. He reminds me of the great Brazil team from 1982 (and 1986), a team that could beat anyone, but ...
 
   Aug-02-06 Dortmund Sparkassen (2006) (replies)
 
MTal: No wonder Dortmund will not be part of the "grand slam" that was announced during the Sofia tournament.
 
   Jul-30-06 Aronian vs Kramnik, 2006 (replies)
 
MTal: <ltsiros: 42. ... h5 blundered the game away. Now white wins with the following line, for example: +1.60 43. f5+ gxf5 44. gxh5 Kf6 45. h6> The only problem is, Fritz 9 then plays 45...c5+ 46.bxc5 bxc5+ 47.Kxc5 and only then 47...Kg6, and dead draw. I am not much of a Kramnik ...
 
   May-25-06 Turin Olympiad (2006) (replies)
 
MTal: Any evals in Kramnik-Aronyan? Levon's end game looks very suspect for #3 in the world. Topalov exposed him once or twice, now it's Kramnik.
