  BishopBerkeley: Veselin Topalov playing Black defeats Garry Kasparov: the only time in the database that's happened!

Nice game.

  BishopBerkeley: <WMD> Ah, but only once against Veselin Topalov!

(: ♗ Bishop Berkeley ♗ :)

Kasparov's losses playing White:

(A remarkably small number if you exclude simuls, blitz games, rapid games, youthful not-yet-mature games, etc.)

Jan-26-06  pifa: kasparov messed up the endgame
Jan-26-06  you vs yourself: Both Kasparov and Topalov were using the help of a computer during this game. That is why it's called <Advanced chess>.
Sep-20-07  xeroxmachine: Have you heard about this new fantastic player called Kaspalov?
