|Feb-19-07|| ||greenrook: The white rook on a1 seemed to be "en prise" for quite a while.
Could Short have captured the piece safely before move 22 ?|
|Feb-28-07|| ||Resignation Trap: <greenrook> 18...Qxa1 was a possibility, but Short decided to keep White on the defensive with 18...f3.|
|Oct-16-09|| ||pablo333: I think 7 Qh5 is inferior, and that 7 Nf3 would give white an opening advantage.|
|Dec-16-09|| ||returnoftheking: According to Ree the rook sacrifice was a prepared novelty by Timman and Piket. Short "smelled a rat" and did not go for it, although it was proven later that accepting the sacrifice is quite ok.
Unfortunately I can't see the game thanks to auto updates :@, so analysis to follow later..|
|Nov-04-10|| ||BISHOP TAL: According to Short,(I did not see a direct rufatation of capturing the rook,judging by the rapid speed of this critical decision.It was clear were I to do so. I would be running into some serious homework). So he chose to assualt the king.Just cuase it was proven later taking the rook is ok. doesnt mean he would found it in the game as you prolly know, maybe Timman should of stared at the board for 30 mins or so and he may of got his homework in. Than again maybe not.|
|May-17-15|| ||Eggman: "Sometimes I feel absurdly strong, for no apparent reason. Against Jan Timman, I had this remarkable surge of energy before the ninth game, when the match had swung against me. He naturally came to the game feeling confident, and I could sense it in his mind. What he didn't know was that in my mind I was thinking, he can't touch me."|
|Jun-27-17|| ||Flemming: <Eggman> Different wiev on this game was gien by Timman in Sosonko's book "Smart chip from St. Petersburg". Timman had sleepless night befr the game:
"This was the decisive game in World Championship semi-final match. I had been up almost entire night before the game. I remember the heavy feeling I had as I came out to play. From experience I knew that everything, intuition above all, hinged on this. Your mind isn't your own, you're a different person."|
