  wordfunph: game story..

<Timman lost the first game playing the White pieces in a way that didn't receive any respect, especially after Filipino GM Eugenio Torre pointed out that the variation Timman played (he lost a pawn for nothing) had been previously analyzed by Karpov in New in Chess. Timman is the Editor-in-Chief of that magazine!>
