Apr-12-05  Poisonpawns: This is an awsome game by the Ken ,Just follow the journey of the Rook on A1,it is very interesting and instructive.
Apr-12-05  aw1988: <Poisonpawns> Tal vs Botvinnik, 1960
Apr-13-05  Poisonpawns: I like the A1 rook journey in this game because the position is blocked and it seems to have no prospects but Ken forces this rook to participate in the game,great play.It is similar to the Tal game but the rook had open lines at least.
Dec-22-08  Ychromosome: 33.Qe4 that is a chess move.
Jan-08-10  tjipa: 33.Qe4 - a nice touch indeed! Otherwise - it seems, the young Timman got impatient with the irregular course of the game and played the seemingly sane pawn sac 24.... f4, when sth weird, maybe, was needed, like 24.... Bh6, eh?
Jun-28-10  jerseybob: It seems to me that 20..f4 is the natural continuation for black. Then if,gf black has more troops ready for a k-side attack than does white. Or if 21.g4,Ng6 and the attack flows down the h-file.
Jul-01-10  ex0duz: What about 26.Nfxd5? Isn't that winning for black? Or at least better than the ng6-nf4 plan that black played in during the game?

  Garech: Fantastic game - lots of fight and struggle. Only just discovered Kenneth Rogoff - he sounds like a remarkable man!



Mar-17-12  King Death: <Garech>, he was a great talent that had to get down to the business of earning a living and unfortunately playing chess wasn't the way there in America.
Jun-12-15  MarkFinan: And not a pawn taken till the 22nd move. I guess that's a little rare in this day and age, the top level games I watch are all opening theory and sometimes the queens, a few pawns and a minor piece apiece down within 15-20 moves. Nice little game though.

  FSR: <MarkFinan> Rogoff was obviously in a big hurry in this game. In K Rogoff vs A H Williams, 1969 he waited until move 94 to make the first trade.

  perfidious: Sheer ennui nearly took over in the marathon with Williams, so Rogoff felt it necessary to take speedy action.
