Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-03-04  Whitehat1963: Nice finish by Topalov, but Radja probably should have resigned earlier.
Sep-07-05  YouRang: Radjabov in zugzwang after move 60. He is practically forced to move 61. f4, which exposes his king to an irresistable attack.
May-10-06  syracrophy: <YouRang>

After 62.f4 gxf4 and white has to give its queen, with mate in a few moves

Oct-31-07  Ardashir: Or rather, 62. f5 Qe1+ 63. Qxe1 dxe1Q# or 62. Qf1 Qxf3+ 63. Qg2 Qxg2#.
