|Apr-23-08|| ||The Chess Express: 16. f4? was the mistake that lead to white's dificulties. 16. Rc1 Nbc6 17. 0-0 0-0-0 18. c3 dxc3 19. Bxc3 d4 20. Bd2 f5 is more interesting.|

|Apr-03-12|| ||MORPHYEUS: You haven't login for a while and when you do you see your pun submission as game of the day. Nice feeling.|
|Apr-03-12|| ||Bishoprick: I don't understand this resignation. What is supposed to happen next?|
|Apr-03-12|| ||viking78: 27.Ke3 then what?|

<viking78: 27.Ke3 then what?>
Black will next grab the c-pawn.
I don't think it's about immediate threats, just that White finds himself bags of material down without any real compensation.
|Apr-03-12|| ||Garech: Great game; Khalifman is a maestro with the Armenian Winawer, check out|
Judit Polgar vs Khalifman, 2000
for another superb display.
|Apr-03-12|| ||Sastre: 27.Ke3 Be4 with the threat of 28...Nf5+ wins.|
|Apr-03-12|| ||Garech: P.s. regarding the resignation, after 27.Ke3 will come ...Rc8! with a crushing advantage. For example 28.Re2 (virtually forced, or white is losing even more quickly)...Qg3+ 29.Kd2 Rxc2+ 30.Kd1:|

and black can choose between Rxe2 and Qb3 (followed up with Qxa3 in both lines) and endgames are completely winning.
|Apr-03-12|| ||viking78: thx <Garech> for the analyse, 27...Rc8 is indeed a strong move.|
|Apr-03-12|| ||kevin86: On Seinfeld,there was an attempt to de-superhero Spiderman and Superman just be changing the accent on their names FROM the last sylable.|
|Apr-03-12|| ||scormus: Ouch! Even Jan Timman came undone playing Qg4, Qxg7 against the Winawer. I feel in good company!|
Really a masterclass by Kalifman.
<Who's the man?> The Man In Black of course ;)
|Apr-03-12|| ||Penguincw: I get the pun. Both player's last name ends with "man".|
|Jul-23-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Guess-the-Move Final Score:
Timman vs Khalifman, 2000.
YOU ARE PLAYING THE ROLE OF KHALIFMAN.
Your score: 44 (par = 26)
|Oct-05-15|| ||plang: 14 Ng3 was a new move that did not work out well; 14 f4 or 14 0-0-0 were alternatives. Instead of 16 f4? Khalifman suggested 16 0-0..Nbc6 17 f4..exf 18 Nh5..0-0-0 19 Nxf4..Rh8 with an unclear position. Timman lost quickly after 18 0-0?; better was 18 Kf1..Nbc6 19 Re1..Rh8 20 Bd1..Rxh7 21 Rxe5..Nxe5 22 Nf6+..Kd8 23 Nxh7..Nf5 with advantage to Black. One possible conclusion would have been 27 Ke3..Rc8 28 Re2..Qg3+ 29 Rf3..Qg1+ 30 Rff2..Re4 31 Qh8+..Kd7.|
