Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-07-06  hayton3: The aggressive Nc3 g4 of the 'advance' variation of the Caro-Kann dismantled.
Aug-20-06  MUG: Perhaps Timman should have been able to draw this endgame. 47.Rh7 was the way to do it.
Apr-04-07  M.Laine: I think beginning of end was:Losing g4 pawn,and then other pawn -2 pawn.It is too much for endgame.

Rook and pawn endgame against Karpov..
Timman made mistakes too easily!

Dec-18-08  Bondsamir: It seems that Timman studied this variation and wanted to suprise Karpov with new ideas within, but for his hard luck Karpov's intuition was very sharp.
Dec-18-08  Woody Wood Pusher: wow great game
Dec-18-08  hackmate: Van der Wiel Attack Bishop Hunt. An easy name to remember.
Feb-07-09  Fiberking: Karpov must have had some serious time trouble, for his 38... Rf8 much prolongs the game, where 38... f2 immediately decides (if white goes 39. Rf4, then 39...Rf8). This , while 'Guess the Move' gave me a minus 1 for 38...f2!

Anyway, typical Karpovian game. Icy cool, clean cut defense. Cannot help but think that Timman missed something somewhere in the early middle game though.

Feb-07-09  euripides: <Fiber> if <38...f2> doesn't White play 39.Re4+ followed by Rf4 ?

Karpov's approach to development in this game is quite attractive. I must try leaving my KR and KB at home more often and see what happens.

Jun-19-11  ycpl: Why not 1... Nxg6?
