“This reminds me of the Ali – Foreman boxing match”

Susan Polgar – one of the best women players in the world on the second game between Topalov and Kramnik.

Looks like the same story, as last game but different format.   Topalov bounced out of the blocks with white and mounted a ferocious attack on Kramnik’s king.   Kramnik held on and Topalov made several mistakes which look like they’re gonna cost him the game.   A shocking start for the better player.   It looks like 2-0 to Kramnik.

Nicholas, the link doesn’t take you anywhere interesting.

But from your para, should that be a reference to Ali vs Foreman and Ali’s “rope-a-dope” tactics in the “Rumble in the Jungle” rather than the “Thrilla in Manila”?

Nicholas, I’m very sorry. But I mistakenly read “Frazier” for “Foreman” in your title. I have no explanation why I did that. You’re right.
