MOT: Kasparov - Topolov 1999
Well, it's about time for new MOT, and no one else is stepping up ...
 
So, I thought I'd pull an interesting position from Kasparov's "Immortal Game" as it has been called, in his match against Topolov in 1999.
 
The opening will be:
 
1. e4 d6
2. d4 Nf6
3. Nc3 g6
4. Be3 Bg7
 
 
Standard 2-game format, each player playing white once and black once. I'm hoping for two tables of six each, but the more the merrier. Planning on starting this MOT on 1 Oct.
 
Who's in?
 
Current players:

WizardNo1

Azathoth

There's plenty of room left! I'll take as many as we can get.

w00t! Power joins in the nick of time.
 
That makes 11. I'll be on both boards, so we'll have two boards of six. I'll post the pairings tomorrow. Or tonight, if I get time.
