Sep-21-09  TheMacMan: hehe timman makes kasparov look like a patzer in this game
Dec-04-09  I play the Fred: I still want to know why Kasparov played the Spanish.
Aug-27-10  sevenseaman: Not bad at all. Any win for Timman against the big K is a cause for celebration.
Jun-11-11  lost in space: Wow, never seen this game before. What an attack! Great game!!!

  Fusilli: I have to say that Timman beat Kasparov playing Kasparov style.
Aug-17-12  Everett: <Fusilli: I have to say that Timman beat Kasparov playing Kasparov style.>

.. because Kasparov was playing Karpov's opening!

Aug-17-12  Mudphudder: That was one serious manhandling Kasparov received in the end there. What a combination!
Dec-16-12  Holzfaller: 33. ...Nxe1 was better than 33. ...Kxf6

The game score here has a mistake: <31. Qd2> instead of 31. Qc2. With the queen on d2, 33...Nxe1 34. Ne8+ wins for White. I'm submitting a correction.
Dec-16-12  quantum.conscious: <ruylopez900: The black is checked by the white which is attacked by the black which is pinned to its by the white which is pinned to its by the black >

:)

what an amusing and interesting/fascinating position!

31. Qd2 makes sense, ofcourse

  Benzol: Brutal moves from both sides from 33...Kxf6 onwards. It took blows like these to put Kasparov on the canvas.
Sep-14-15  morfishine: Arguably, one of Timman's greatest wins. He had a knack for winning and losing brilliantly

  maxi: Does the pun refer to "Time waits for no one? I believe the Dutch pronunciation for Timman is TEA-MAN..., not TIME-MAN.
Sep-14-15  fisayo123: Kasparov playing the Ruy Lopez. A rarity.
Sep-14-15  The Kings Domain: Fine game by the Dutch master, he outpointed the champ the way the latter usually does his foes.

  maxi: Short i. Right <blunderclap>, thanks.
Mar-16-17  Saniyat24: WOW....what a magical ending!
Aug-20-17  WorstPlayerEver: 31... Qe7 0-1
Aug-21-17  WorstPlayerEver: A very funny continuation could be:

32. Re3 Nc1 33. Qc1 Qe5 34. Qd2 Ra1 35. Bd1 Rea8 36. Nc3 Qf4 37. g3 Qb4 38. Kg2 R8a2 39. Qe1 Re2

And although Black moves a piece to a square where it is under attack 4 times, White still loses.

That's what Timman said.
