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-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 21.gf,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?
