Linares 2010: Topalov Leads

Topalov has taken charge at Linares. After 5 rounds, he's the only player with a plus score. Aronian, Grischuk, and Gashimov are chasing a point back. Today, Topalov won with the rarely played 6.h3 (after a feint and a ruse) in the Najdorf. Compare to game 41 below where the game transposed to a Keres Attack with 6...e6.
