  plang: Timman's piece sacrifice 18..Ne5 is an indication of how sharp this variation is. His compensation was white's weakness on the long diagonal. Timman recommended 20 Bf5..Bd3 21 Bd3 as white's best defence. In the game blacks pressure was difficult to withstand.
May-11-17  dhotts: Wow, this is one wild game as Black harasses White's king and White finally strikes back only without enough piece support.
