Kamsky vs Topalov

Spanish Game: Closed Variations. Flohr System (C92) · 1-0

Kevin’s Commentary: It takes a lot to put Topalov on the defensive and make him a passive player but that is exactly what Kamsky did in this game and is the main reason he won the game. Topalov is a very aggressive player and likes to be attacking and controlling the game. This game showed that even when a strong player is not playing his “style” it is very difficult to have the results that you would like, especially against a player like Kamsky.
