Jun-28-06  percyblakeney: TWIC: <Tiviakov said his victory over Timman was one of the best games of his life>
Jul-02-06  Ybrevo: Considering that Timman played with a Rook less all the game (the sorry piece at h8), the result is not surprising, and the sac. on move 22 seemed very logical. But a good game by Tiviakov indeed.

Do you have a link to his column? Which paper does he write for?

Too bad Tiviakov missed this brilliant win, with the thematic 24 d4-d5!! in this IQP position.

Jul-10-06  aragorn69: The link is http://sport.guardian.co.uk/chess/s...

Short also thinks Black is better as late as move 19 (where he should have castled queenside), so maybe it's not Tiviakov most flawless game ever... ;-)

Jul-10-06  notyetagm: <aragorn69> Thanks for the link.

Here Tiviakov (White) played the pedestrian 24 ♗c1-e3?!, missing a much stronger continuation.

Notice in the final diagram how the White g1-king is immune from <CHECKS> on the back rank, as the Black c1-knight self-blocks the c1-square while the White h5-queen covers the d1-square.
