Topalov won Bilbao
« on: September 15, 2008, 05:34:09 PM »
Topalov won Bilbao... *sigh*. I was rooting for Carlsen or Ivanchuk. Oh well, Carlsen got 2nd, and Ivanchuk did well... and Ivanchuk did win both the Tal Memorial and Tal Blitz.

I really liked the tournament, however. A lot of fighting chess! I think the drawing restrictions, and the football scoring, may be for the better. Not sure about the time controls, though.

Here's the ChessBase article: http://chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp?newsid=4908
