Feb-02-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Interesting pins ...
Jan-10-08  whiteshark: What a disaster! But where went black wrong ?
Jan-10-08  Tomlinsky: Black just didn't get going really did he. No attempt to expand on the Queen-side, relinquish the centre, move pieces backwards. Ah well, it's only Topolov in a Semi-Slav after all, what could possibly go wrong? Passivity bordering on comatose.

  FSR: An amusing game (albeit not for Black). If he had tried to play on, the game might have continued 21...Bxe5 22.hxg6 (with the terrible threat of 23.gxf7+ Kh8 24.Qxh7#) Qh4 (22...hxg6 23.Qxg6) 23.gxf7+ Kh8 24.Rxe5 with a winning advantage.
