Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-14-06  PeterMorris: It seems to me that white played too passively. I haven't analysed anything yet, but at a glance it does appear so to me.
Sep-07-10  Atking: To me Liberzon played remarkably well.

  Jim Bartle: It looks to me as if Timman played too aggressively or optimistically by pushing his kingside pawns so far in front of his king. Isn't that what got him in trouble?
Sep-07-10  Atking: Well Jim, if White can't pusch effectively b3 (Here it seems that he can't) then he had to play on the King side. Indeed the way Liberzon secured Ba4 and got an equal enventually a bit advantageous position convinced me. Maybe Timman should play 17.b3 cxb 18.Nxb3 Ba4 19.Nc5 BxQ 20.NxQ+ RxN 21.RxB Rc7 with a Nimzowitsch type pressure on c3. Hence another idea could be 16...Nc8~17...Nb6
