  lostemperor: A nice set up from Timman, grabbing the initiative only to give the game away by a mistake. Leko defending excellent with "only moves". Still I believe Timman will do OK this tournament (I hope:)

  kevin86: White will lose the exchange due to the mate threat at f3. The game will soon follow.
Jan-13-04  jaime gallegos: 30.Qxc4 would be better creating tension on the queen side. 32.h3 Qh6 33.Rg1 would be better ...
Timman had a good attack but lost for his mistakes... He was an excellent player but now he play on Wijk aan Zee because he is dutch not for his current level ...
Jan-13-04  MoonlitKnight: Dare I guess that this will be Leko's only victory in this tournament? I think he will be happy to draw the rest.
Apr-19-05  aw1988: It's now April and we all know who won. :)
