A.J.'s TS;  Game # 4

Back Next

This will be game # 4 of my Tactical School, when it is ready. 

Here I will annotate the game:  GM E. Bareev (2730) - GM V. Topalov (2745) 
Sparkassen sf. (3) 2002. 

An incredible flurry of tactics ... which I have been examining for months. White is left with an extra RP ... he wins in instructive fashion. 

Bareev,Evgeny (2726) - Topalov,Veselin (2745) [E97]
Candidates sf2 Dortmund (R#3), 15.07.2002
