Jun-15-10  shuriken68: Great game! I don't know why there's no kibbitzing here. It's so beautiful, so aesthetic! Home prep/cooking or not, it's pure art on 64 squares. Timman at it's best. For me, it represents memories from teenage days...
Apr-14-11  harish22: I read Michael Stean's analysis of this game. After Rh2 he mentioned that "it is inconceivable that a grandmaster playing with white should be so stripped of his dignity". Timman was one of the best players of his days. And a very universal player. Too bad that he never became a world champion.
