Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-08-17  ozmikey: I like the way Timman uses his powerful knight and central pawn, as well as the weakness on e2, to force decisive weakenings here. 24. Bg4 looks very odd of course but the alternative 24. Bg2 Bxg2 25. Kxg2 meets 25...Rfe6! when strangely White can't adequately defend the pawn: 26. e3 g5, trapping the bishop, 26. Nc1 Nxe2! with ...d3 to follow, or 26. Be5 (hoping for 26...Rxe5? 27. Nxe5 Rxe5 28. Rxc3! and 29. Rf3 in answer to a queen check) Qd5+.

On the next move, the same weakness on e2 comes into play; 25. f3 looks dreadful, but on 25. Bf3 Nxe2+! again nets material.
