  plang: Timman is critical of 8 d5? saying that after 8..Na5: " A very favorable variation of the Yugoslav variation of the Kings Indian has arisen; White's main problem being that he won't be able to support his c-pawn with a knight". He felt that after 9 0-0 (he recommended 9 Bd2) Black already had a clear advantage. If 22 Nxc4..bxc 23 Bxc4..Bb5! 24 Qa2..Na6 25 Rb1..Bc4
and Black wins. After 25..Nc5 the weakness of the a-pawn and the dominance of Black on the queenside added up to a winning advantage. Salov initiated some clever complications with 31 Nxf7 but Timman was up to the defensive task.
