  Sneaky: This game followed one of the games in the qualifiers (A Belozerov vs Filippov, 2004) all the way up to 20...Nb8.
Nov-17-04  themindset: after black gets in 12...f5 it seems like everything is under control, and white has to fight for even a slim advantage.
Nov-18-04  jeffnool: this young russian will surely excell in this tournament....
Nov-18-04  PinkPanther: How do you know he will "excell"?
Nov-22-04  GazoGypsy: Definately seems to be at top form, but will Timofeev have enough stamina to go all the way? <sneaky> thanks for the reference.
Jul-12-08  Jesspatrick: 20...Nb8 was a rather odd maneuver (Third time for the N on its starting square!), designed to shut off the a-file.
