The Kamsky-Topalov grudge match in  the Amber Chess Tournament (March 14-26, Nice, France) ended in two decisive results: Topalov won the blindfold game while Kamsky got his revenge in the rapids. Kamsky is now tied for the lead in the rapids with Aronian, in the middle of the pack in the combined standings and at the bottom in the blindfold. Tomorrow is the last round of Amber, and Kamsky faces Morozevich starting at 7:30 EST.
