Hey curtains!

That was a great video! Thanks so much for doing the series. My favorite line was, "Topalov, that's not how you become world champion!" I enjoyed all the chortling too -- though Topalov is probably the only Super-GM that would be appropriate for since he can't seem to behave himself away from the board or keep his pit bull under control (assuming he even wants to...).

L8erz...

Hi Greg. I couldn't help but re-watch this brilliant game again! You were wondering about black's move Qxb2 (32.14 mins in). The only thing i can see is: 51. Rh6+ kg8, 52. Rxh5 and now the queen is no longer on e2 to defend that pawn. I think it's a more unclear position and it looks like white has some nice counter play possible...
