May-12-05  bizz: Hopefully this is what we are gonna see today in M-Tel Masters opening game :)
Jan-08-06  Bobak Zahmat: <bizz> No in M-Tel we see a superb Knigh sacficife! Look Topalov vs Anand, 2005
Jan-08-06  Bobak Zahmat: Unbelievable how attacking Topalov is playing with the Black pieces. After taking the b pawn Black slowly takes the initiative. After 34. ... Rff2 it's game over.
Dec-29-08  percyblakeney: The third game between Anand and Topalov (in this database), also this one with Anand as white. It would take a couple of years until their next meeting. Topalov lost a couple of pretty games against Karpov and Bareev in Linares 1994, but here he got a nice win against Anand, and they both ended up with an even score.
May-11-14  Vdh: 40. ...Rh2? 40. ...Rg4 was imminent. Maybe in a hurry to reach the 40th move.
