Apr-20-06  drmariogodrob: <> If it's pertinent, It seems like it should be 44. e7 instead of 44. e7+. Otherwise a fun attack by Topalov. I'm always a fan of seeing the French get beaten (the opening, that is). Hoping this is more a forecast of the outcome of the match this fall than their overall record is.
