  perfidious: This game was annotated in Chess Mail in 1997 and is full of piquant tactics; a far cry from what one might expect in a typical Andersson game.
Jan-26-08  Volmac: This great game is also annotated here in swedish.
Aug-27-08  jovack: pretty wild game

reminds me of something I would play at a park or a small club

  GrahamClayton: This was Timmerman's first loss after playing in 3 tournaments without losing a game. Andersson's 14....d4! overturned analyis by Karpov from the early 1980's.

  perfidious: <GrahamClayton> You mentioned analysis by Karpov; I'm unfamiliar with that, but there's a game he played with Spassky in 1980, and this is where Andersson improved the line for Black.

Well, Karpov was a player, competitor and fighter, first and foremost. His analysis has often been shown (by Kasparov, Levitt, Timmnan and others) to be not so thorough. Probably wasn't as interested in working things out away from the board.

Playing OTB is sport and competition, a battle. The pace of Correspondence chess takes so much of the emotional tension away that it is barely recognizable in comparison. Look at Andersson here, playing ultra-sharp lines studied at home and each moment between his meals. He loved to study the game and likely relished all of the adjournments he was able to attain with his much slower style OTB.

Nothing wrong with it though. I simply prefer not to have my favorite past-time turned into math homework.

Or still worse, given that virtually all top correspondence players likely use software to aid them, the reason I will never play CC again.

Still and all, a fine game by Andersson.
