  rleder: Interesting that Timman has found himself in the same position after 45 half-moves, playing both as white and as black. I wonder if that's a record? Here he plays 23...Rg7, while Hjartson would play 23...Qd4 against him in '89. White won in both cases.

  EmperorAtahualpa: I guess 27...Rg4 was the decisive mistake here?
