Originally posted by zebanoIt's not so much that Kamsky let it slip away as Topalov just played like Topalov can. Kamsky's only losses came against Topalov, he scored 1.5/2 against all 4 of the other super-GMs playing. That's seriously impressive.
Absolutly shocking that Kamsky let that one slip away. Less so that Topalov came back like that as it seems to be habitual.
Originally posted by XanthosNZyeah I agree with your post ... Kamsky needs to change the way he plays against Topalov ( his " black-beast" since Gata's return ) ... being few months ago retired of the professional chess, he is coming back with a good style , and doesnt looks rusty ...

The chess section in the paper today picked one of Topalov's games from this tournament in which, recovering from a losing position, made Ponomariov pay:
Black has just played 31...d5??
How did Topalov capitalise? Give White's next two moves, in which he gained a significant advantage.

Note that after fxg5 Qe5+ isn't possible. I've seen the game, so I won't comment, but notice that the h7 pawn is a huge target....If white's bishop could switch diagonals, it would be game set.
