Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-13-06  johnwgoes: Is there anyway for Topalov to draw against best play after move 37?

It seems that white will have no difficulty putting his pawns on dark sqaures and should win with technique.

Aug-05-06  kcb: Nice game by Dreev.
Is the Benko playable against Vladik?
Nov-02-08  Poisonpawns: This is another example of Topalov "outplaying" himself.He wants to win so bad,that even in equal positions he tries to win.After 38..Bc4 Black forces the Bishop trade and has easy draw i.e 39.Rc7+ Kh6 40.f4 Bxf1 41.Kxf1 Rc2.This characteristic of Topalov; as seen against Kramnik is something Kamsky needs to utilize.Play openings that will result in dry positions and let topalov try to create something out of nothing and lose.
