Topalov Beats Kamsky, BCF Chesckmates Chessbase

Veselin Topalov won the match against Gata Kamsky with the final score of 4.5-2.5. The games were fantastic and I think that Kamsky didn't play weaker, he was just unlucky. Bad time management in game two, blunder in game five and now missed win in game seven. But also kudos to Topalov who jumped into complications when draw was desired result for his team.

Another battle was fought between Chessbase and the Bulgarian Chess Federation. We have seen the announcement on the match website that Chessbase is violating copyright laws (they didn't explain how though). BCF hired a lawyer who threatened Chessbase and made them eventually stop the broadcast.
