Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-25-10  Poisonpawns: I am Restarting my "Candidates matches" collection.Here is the first game of their 1993 match.The winner would face Kasparov. This game, although a draw was very exciting.Both player missed wins or huge advantages.Briefly my notes: Simply 29.Qxa4 gives white a nice adv,can anyone find a refutation?

Move 32:If Nigel plays 32...Rxc4 33.Nxc4 Qxb5 this would lead to him having two minor pieces for the rook

Move 36.Kh2?? Very passive, instead Bc4!(Threat Nf7+ Kh7 Nd6)

black is almost forced to give up the exchange.

37.Qg3? is a major blunder and Timman should lose.Sometimes being better in a game for awhile causes a player to lose his/her objectivity. Timman misses a chance to force a draw with a Queen sacrifice.

37.Rxe4! Nxe4 38.Qf8+!

Rxf8 39.Ng6+ Kh7 40.Nxf8+ Kh8 41.Ng6+

After the move Qg3?(This may have been a zeitnot situation) Nigel misses the win 38...Nxe4!

42..Qd5! eye on the diagnal then if Nxg7? 43..Rc1 is very strong.
