  cu8sfan: What a blood bath! Ljubojevic seems completely lost in this poisoned pawn variation. A great game by Timman!
Dec-23-04  Shams: yes, thanks for bringing this great game out.

it`s nice to remember that 19 years ago, Timman was on the winning side of games like this :)

  sfm: I really don't get 17.-,Qxa2, putting away the queen totally. How about e.g. 17.-,Qe7 instead?
Jun-13-05  Poisonpawns: I believe Timman was ranked 3 in the world at this time.This game is very impressive

  tpstar: In "Starting Out: The Sicilian" John Emms notes 17 ... Qe7 can be met by 18. Nc6!! bxc6 19. Nd6+:

1) 19 ... Kf8? 20. Qh6+ mates

2) 19 ... Kd8 20. Qa5+ Nb6 21. Qxb6+ Kd7 22. Ne4 "and White has an awesome attack" (Emms).

Mar-15-07  euripides: 10...Nbd7,deterring e5, seems to have very good results for Black in recent correspondence games: Games Like Timman vs Ljubojevic, 1985
Apr-23-07  scormus: A fabulous game by Timman. The moves look so natural - the sign of a true masterpiece. Nice comment by tpstar. I wondered about 17.-,Qe7 too.
