Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-06-09  ughaibu: According to Timman, black could've won by 28....Rc4, but he doesn't mention the reply 29.Nf6, any opinions?
Feb-13-11  ughaibu: Still no views about this?
Feb-13-11  Jim Bartle: I can't figure it out. At first I thought 28...Rc4 had to be a typo, then I (finally) saw the ...Qh1+ and the attack on the b1 rook.
Feb-13-11  tonsillolith: These are what I see:

<29. Qxc4 Nd2+>,

<29. bxc4 Rxb1 30. Qxb1 Nd2+>,

<29. Nf6+ Kh8 30. Nxh5 Rxc2 31. Rxf3 Rh6 32. Ng3 f4> or <32. Rh3 Rxf2+>,

<29. Nf6+ Kh8 30. Qxc4 Nd2+ 31. Ke1 Nxc4 32. Nxh5 Nxe3>

Feb-17-11  ughaibu: Okay, and do you agree with Timman or not?

  hoodrobin: Timman (2016) says: 25.Ng3! e4 26.Qd2! and the endgame offers White winning chances.

  hoodrobin: About this game you must cnf Timman's Titans (2016). Rogozin should win after 29...Rh6!.
