The word Toiletgate has been mentioned a few times again in Hoogeveen. Yesterday Dutch journalist Gert Ligerink interviewed Topalov and thus gave him a chance to tell his part of the story to the world. The day before yesterday Veselin smiled and said in the pressroom: "I will not play here without cameras in the toilets." Judit Polgar answered to that: "Well, not in my toilet!" Topalov then added: "And I want the tapes too!" Today Topalov's manager Silvio Danailov, who joined his proteg?ɬ© yesterday, showed that he too brought his sense of humour to Hoogeveen.



What's in that toilet...? ...hm, time is still ticking. Judit Polgar won again today - actually she always plays well in Hoogeveen. And Topalov today showed that he's still a fighter. He got his first victory since Elista.

Some extra photos of today from the open group: Anatoly Donchenko Dutch national champion Zhaoqin Peng David Smerdon uit Australi?ɬ´ Arlette van Weersel Arkadi Vul Arbiter and IM Rob Hartoch, who sometimes has an opinion about a position as well!
