Topalov System: Tactical Chess at its best

Vaselin Topalov, the FIDE world champion of 2005 tournament has a very attractive style of tactical play. He is a known crowd pleaser. His thinking system can be described as:
1. Take the game to risky, unclear lines in the opening or in the middle game.
2. Use your superb tactical skills to come on top in the endgame.
3. Be prepared to use long endgames to win the game.
4. Take attacking initiatives, calculated risk and have computer like accuracy.

Using his system, Topalov on many occasions, has won so many games in a series in a tournament that he gets accused of cheating but that is his natural ability.
