18...e4!? The computer doesn't like it very much, but Timman bets on his knight outplaying the white bishop, and the opening of the e-file eventually being to his advantage... And everything played out exactly that way!

Here if 31.Bxg5 Rxg4+! 32.hxg4 Qxg4+ 33.Kf2 Ne4+ followed by 34...Qxg5 and white is toast. At this point it looks like Portisch has no good moves anyway. He's been strategically outplayed and his king is defenseless.
