  perfidious: Timman's win of a pawn has long considered to offer less than the alternative 15.Nxc6 Nxc6 16.dxe5 Nxe5 17.Bd2, which was played in Unzicker-Korchnoi, Johannesburg 1979, and which I followed in a game with Kenneth C Potts in the early 1990s.

In Garcia Palermo-Sisniega, Bayamo 1981, Black continued with 22....a5, which may well be an improvement over Huebner's play.

  FSR: A more amusing way to draw would be 59...Kc6 60.Kxa3 Kb7=. But not 59...Ra1?? 60.Ba5 Rb1+ 61.Kc4 Rc1+ 62.Bc3 1-0.
