Topalov tried a number of novelties in his match against Kramnik. Some of the novelties worked out and some did not have any effect whatsoever. Some fans suggested that he should have tried 1.e4. Some suggested different 1.d4 openings.

If you were Topalov’s advisor / trainer, what would be YOUR game plan? How can Topalov defeat Kramnik or will good defense usually beat good offense?
