Kamsky’s First Win Over Topalov

Saturday, February 21st, 2009

Just like Fischer, who’s first win against Spassky did not come until their World Championship contest in 1972, Kamsky also “waited” to draw first blood against Topalov until today, in their all-important qualification match to determine Anand’s challenger.

The score is now level at 2-2 in this ultra-short 8-game match. It’s now already at the half-way mark!

Rumor has it 16.Bc2 is the novelty.



Serious chess. Serious fun!
