  Everett: 24.b4! snags the queen. If white plays 24.Bc7 first, black plays Qe1+ and wins white's rook.

Nice interference combination.

Sep-08-21  tessathedog: Karpov wrote excellent Informator notes to his games, including this one (#364 of 51). He was one of the annotators who managed to overcome the languageless format. One senses him "talking" to us through his notes even without words. Petrosian and Polugaevsky also did this particularly well. If you have access to that Informator, it's well worth playing through this game with that. We are treated to a lesson on move 12 on which minor pieces to exchange in an IQP structure (or a d4/d5 pawn structure) and which to keep, for both sides. The are several lovely variations given showing how the combination of a far advanced central passed pawn and back rank weakness would have brought Timman undone even if he had defended differently. A game which gave me a lot of enjoyment (but I did need Karpov's notes to reveal its full glory!)
