  tpstar: When you see a fork in the road, take it.

Black had to fork over the full point.

Topalov wanted to win the tournament, but Ivanchuk said, "Forkget it!"

  tamar: Topalov correctly guages he gets his pawn back, but misses 28 c6 bringing the knight into play just at the moment when Black's knight is far away.

Coming into this round (6) Ivanchuk had had a slow start with 1 win and 4 draws.

This win seemed to inspire him, and starting here he got 7 more wins and only two draws.

Oct-03-07  aazqua: Ha ha. Topalov is such a knee biter.
Oct-03-07  amadeus: Ouch.

And he succeeded. Stop being so sensitive and get a sense of humor.
