Dec-03-13  Poisonpawns: Bold play Timman. First giving up the exchange to remove Shorts light square bisshop, and then exploiting SHort on the light squares. This was not enough;until Short made the move 23.Nh1?? d3 had to be played in order to meet Bd5 with the blockading Ne4.I still like Black here.
