Mar-21-05  azaris: The positional sacrifice 19...♖xb3! sets up a bind that White never recovers from. Timman completely underestimated the potence of kicking the bishop with h6 and g5, followed by ♘e4. In the end he tries to swindle but it is to no avail.
May-15-06  hayton3: <azaris> Indeed - lovely positional sacrifice to allow Black to swamp the white camp with pawns.

  perfidious: Timman might have tried 18.Nd1, as in the following game, to avoid the sacrifice which destroys his position: Wenliang vs Christiansen, 1993.
