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. 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. “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!
