Apr-29-05  notyetagm: A famous Najdorf win by Kasparov.
Aug-23-09  Ulhumbrus: 57...e3! wins by threatening 58...Bxd5 59 Bxd5 Rxd5! 60 Rxd5 e2! 61 Re5 e2-e1/Q+ 62 Rxe1 Bxe1 wining a piece. Timman's 58th move does not answer this threat, but he seems unable to because his N is pinned and his R and B are tied to the defence of the Knight, so they can't move freely either.

  wwall: Instead of 57.Re5, if 57.Nf6 Bxf7 58.Rxf7 e3 59.Re7 Rd1+ 60.Kc2 Rd2+ 61.Kb3 e2 should win for Black.

64...Rh2+ was good. If 64...Bc7 65. h7 Bxf4? 66.Rf8 draws.
