  plang: 5..Nge7 is a rarely played move that Andersson used on several occasions.

Timman explained the move (8 Bc2) he prepared for this game: "The idea is to postpone the capture on f5 until Black has played his queen to b6, and then to take the queen's knight to a4, attacking the queen."

17..g5 was necessary against the threat of Nf4. After 20..Qa6? White took over the initiative; better was 20..Kd7 21 b3 (21 Nxg4..fxg 22 f5..Qd3 is OK for Black)..Qa6 22 Nb5 with only a small edge for White. 22..Qb7 23 Nxg4..fxg 24 f5..Bd7 25 Qxg4 would have given White an overwhelming attack. A tougher defense was 26..Rf8 27 Rxf8..Bxf8 28 Bxb4..Bxb4 29 Qc2..Qc8 30 Qxc8..Kxc8 31 Nxa7 though White should win this ending.
