Dortmund R8 – Kramnik and Topalov win

7/16/2005 – Arkadij Naiditsch, the lowest-rated player, is still in the lead in Dortmund, but three top GMs are in hot pursuit one round before the end of the Sparkassen Chess Meeting: van Wely, Kramnik and Svidler. Kramnik achieved this by beating Nielsen, and both players afterwards analysed their game for a world-wide audience on TV ChessBase.
