Dec-02-04  Whitehat1963: Kasparov gets his butt handed to him while using the opening of the day.
Dec-02-04  Dillinger: Well to be fair, it was Timman who was responsible for turning the game into a Samisch. Check out the games from the 1990 WC as well, particularly Karpov vs Kasparov, 1990 - you'll see how the Samisch (with the help of its pointier friend, the Bayonet attack) deflated the KID bubble of earlier decades.

  Jim Bartle: Why not 33. Qxf6?
Jan-02-09  slomarko: probably because of 33...Qe8

  Jim Bartle: This was a sixteen player knockout tournament, two game matches. Rapid. I think it was called the Immopar Challenge or something like that.

  whiteshark: Nonetheless only <34...Rxf7> offered some resistance, e.g. <35.Bxg7+ Rfxg7 36.Rxf3 Rxg2 37.Bf5 Rd2 38.Rf1 Rdg2 39.Rb1>

Apr-19-09  andrewleef1: If 34...Rxf7 then 35.Rxf7! and black cannot take the bishop because of mate
Aug-04-12  King Crusher: One of Timman's best games. I understand that this tournament had a large prize fund. So Timman had a big pay day and a rare victory over Kasparov (even if it was rapidplay).
Oct-06-12  Whitehat1963: So, what's the finish? What happens, for example, if 35...Bxf1?
Oct-06-12  williscreek: After 35...Bxf1, 36 Bxg7+ Rxg7 37 Rxf8+ Rg8 38 Rxf1

  offramp: The Paris Immopar rapid tournament ( 2nd Trophée Immopar) of 1991 was one of Timman's best results. He won, beating Kasparov 1½-½ in the final. This was the decisive second game.

En route to the final Timman had beaten Kamsky, Karpov and Anand! A major achievement!
