"I'm of course satisfied, but...."

Veselin Topalov started the second half of the Grand Prix London with a win. This is his first win so far. 

"I'm of course satisfied, - Topalov said. - But I have a feeling that I didn't play good in the opening and my opponent got a comfortable position. Ten I somehow managed to overplay him - he of course made several mistakes."

Dominguez made his decisive mistake on move 33. 


33...Bxe5? Black could hold if playing 33...Qxc6 34.Nxc6.
34.Qxe8+ Bxe8 35.fxe5 The endgame is lost. Soon Cuban player resigned. 

Thus, Topalov became Gelfand's nearest rival much like Mamedyarov who beat Kasimdzhanov. You can find the commentary in the audio player [in Russian].
