Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-14-04  Lawrence: Timman's decisive error was 73...Kf8? With 73...b3 he would have drawn the game. (Karpov)
Dec-16-06  Kingdom NL: 52. h4? is wrong Karpov should go for a draw there with 52. Qd1 and doing "nothing".

Timman made a huge blunder later with 59...Bb5?? I don't understand that move.

59...b5 and 60...b4 looks winning to me. Maybe Timman couldnt handle the hot weather in Malaysia :-)

Oct-22-08  nimh: Karpov missed 25.fxe6!

May-09-16  Howard: The endgame phase (after about the 50th move) is VERY extensively analyzed in Anatoly Karpov: Endgame Virtuoso.

If I remember correctly, the author states that Timman had the much better position around that point.

Oct-12-16  Howard: And, it turns out that New in Chess states that Timman had a won game at one point. Just looked at it last night.
