  suenteus po 147: <Shams> Well, this was a rapid event. I doubt Ljubojevic would have made all the same responses in this game under regular time controls.
Jun-27-05  Shams: yes, of course. I'm indirectly praising Topalov. But you must admit that even for a rapid game, here Topalov makes making it look easy look easy.

  suenteus po 147: <Shams> Yes, it does look easy the way Topalov plays. He's given similar demonstrations against the likes of Kramnik and Anand :)
Oct-20-14  TheBish: Good POTD puzzle for White on move 30! Maybe a Tuesday puzzle. Note that if Black had played 29...Qc7, White could play 30. Qxe6+!!
