|Aug-11-11|| ||DrMAL: Not the finest of openings by black, Moro got an early initiative, with growing advantage after 14...Qd6?! (14...Qd5 was better). Moro played accurately to keep it going (except 27.Rfe1 to immediately threaten the pawn was better). |
With 32...Rxe4 it would have looked quite drawish, but instead black got ambitious with 32...Rd4?! allowing 33.Nc5 for the solid positional advantage that ensued.
35...Rc8 to complicate further was a similar mistake, when disadvantaged and under attack look for simpler such as 35...Nd5 or 35...Nh5 not fancy. At this point, 36.Ne4+! would have probably won (36...Ke5 37...gxf4+ Kxf4 38.Kg2 + -).
With the weaker 36.b4 followed by 37.Rxe6?! to snag the pawn it's nearly an equal game (likely draw) but black's flag fell.

While I know nothing about this line, it seemed that Timofeev got himself into a strategically inferior position.
One post-game comment was delicious, though: <polarmis:.... Morozevich said the position his opponent lost on time in today was "the best Timofeev had had in the whole game".>
|Aug-12-11|| ||dangerhump: <black's flag fell> Ah,that explains it. I was thinking he resigned a tad early there as the final position still had drawing chances. |
Maybe notation should have a letter after it to let public know, for example:
1-0(r) for resignation
1-0(f) for flag
1-0(m) for mate
|Aug-13-11|| ||polarmis: Here's Morozevich's commentary on this strange game (note, he said the final position was Timofeev's best position after move 14, not in the whole game!):|
