Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-11-04  Nezhmetdinov: They really go at it here - Timman seems to feature in many exciting games, on either side - I reckon he has a slightly bohemian attitude to Chess - apparantly he thinks up his most interesting ideas, including a queen for bishop & knight sac, in the bath.
Mar-03-06  Sirthursday: Is 5...Nd4 sound? Black gets castled quickly, but is now two pawns down. I can see him eventually retaking on f5, but I don't see much in the way of compensation for the pawn after 9.Qxf3.

Another question: why 10.Bd3? White has no need to try and hold onto the f5 pawn as he would still be a pawn up. Surely it would be better to wait for Black's inevitable c6 and retreat in true Ruy Lopez style back to b3? This would leave his dark squared bishop free to develop along the c1-h6 diagonal and possibly give him some pressure on the d5 pawn.

  wwall: Instead of 33.Rxh6, which loses, doesn't 33.Qc8+ lead to perpetual check?
Feb-23-14  Shams: <wwall> Doesn't Black escape checks after 33...Kg7 34.Qd7+ Qf7<?>

  wwall: 33.Qc8 Kg7 34.Qxb7+ [34.Rxg5+ Qxg5 35.Qd7+ Kf8 36.Qc8+ Kg7 37.Qd7+ is perpetual check] 34...Kg6 [34...Qf7 35.Rxg5+ hxg5 36.Qxf7+ Kxf7 37.Nxe3 looks good for White] 35.Nxe3 Kxh5 36.Qxa7 Kg6 37.Qd7 Bd5 38.Qe8+ Kg7 39.Nxd5 Qa1+ 40.Kf2 Qxa2+ 41.Qe2 may win for White.
