Default Morozevich v Topalov Round 13 in LInares...

Starting at move 51 they are in a pretty drawish end game, but
Morozevich is in serious time trouble.

This game is actually pretty interesting from that vantage. Topalov
continously plays not-best moves. Not really losing moves, but moves
that are difficult to deal with if you are under time pressure.

Morozevich holds on really well, and Topalov's gamble fails. And unlike
most games on this level it was played all the way to

6QK/8/8/8/4q3/8/7Q/k7 b - - 0 29

I don't think you are going to see many end games like this at this
level. Entertaining, in a car wreck sort of way.

Default Morozevich v Topalov Round 13 in LInares...

At move 51 Morozevich had already completely outplayed Topalov in an endgame
which started as being somewhat better for black. The position is better for
white and probably even winning if Moro had played 53.g4. Moro's slight time
trouble (about 5minutes for 5 moves?) has nothing to do with it

Yeah, the number one player in the world, probably couldn't play this
one out. What a patzer.
