May-10-04  Helloween: In the ending position after 33.Kb4, only 33...g5! can draw for Black, e.g. 34.g4 f6 35.f3 f5 =. 33...g5! gains extra time because it prevents both f4 and h4. Timman played 34.g3(not 34.g4?, which transposes to the 33...g5! line. 34.h4 also wins, as in 34...h5 35.f4 g6 36.g3 Kb7 37.Kb5 Kc7 38.c5 bc5 39.dc5 e5 40.fe5 fe5 41.Kb4! and White wins)and after 34...h5(34...g5 35.g4! puts Black in a fatal zugzwang)35.f4!, White is easily winning(but not 35.h4? g5 =).
Jan-14-12  drdos7: hmmm, I'm not so sure that 24...Nxa6 is the best move, why not try 24...Nxd3 instead?
