Jul-03-09  Knight13: *Clears Throat* Karpov was winning 3-1 at this point and Timman just wastes a game like this?

  Honza Cervenka: <Knight13> Here is a quote from http://www.mark-weeks.com/chess/93k..., which explains it:

<It emerged during the Arnhem portion of the match that the Dutch orgaizers had only pledged 500.000 SFR toward the match, which was earmarked for expenses rather than for the prize fund. Oman also withdrew its offer to finance and organize the second half of the match.

FIDE had obviously failed to procure the bank guarantees which had always been its routine procedure in agreeing match sponsorship. It was not clear how much of the match arrangements had been a bluff on the part of Campomanes in reaction to the PCA match. Timman commented, 'This is the first time I have ever played a 12-game match for free.'>

....

<Game 11 was an 11 move draw. This was attributed to the players' dissatisfaction with FIDE's handling of the affair.>
