My Magic Years with Topalov for the purpose of writing this book I decided to look at all the games

Veselin has played from 1995 until the present, as there were many I didn’t know! I must say that,

although seeing great moves from a 2800 player sounds normal, it was impossible not to be

astonished by some of his games.

My Magic Years

Topalov is one of the kings of practical decisions in chess. He regards chess as more a sport than a

science. If he thinks an idea will work over the board, the notion of risk is irrelevant to him. He wants

to be on the attack and believes an objectively inferior position isn’t necessarily bad if his opponent

needs to find several difficult defensive moves.

My Magic Years

“If that’s the only move for my opponent, let’s enter the line and see if he sees it!” is his philosophy.

He never liked peace over the board or routine play. The moments where he has refused to repeat

moves or has sacrificed something strictly out of intuition are countless. In short, Topalov’s aim has

always been to hit hard and bring his own touch to the game, and I think he has succeeded!

Romain Edouard

Grandmaster Romain Edouard is a world class player and member of the French national team. He

has won many prestigious tournaments including the Al Ain Open 2012, Dubai Open 2014, World

Open 2015 and Montreal Open 2015. He was the second of ex-World Champion V.Topalov and now

more recent of the number 2 in the FIDE ranking, GM Maxime Vachier-Lagrave. He is a successful

commentator and outstanding author of several books, being also the ‘Editor in Chief’ of Thinkers Publishing.
