Jan-26-08  hitman84: Kortchnoi is having a bad tourney.

Great game by Timman! Kortchnio couldn't co-ordiante his pieces at all. Timman's pins will kill you anyday!

  whiteshark: <33...h6??> was Vic's final blunder. Only <33...c5> would give some cheating chances, e.g. <34.Ne6+ Kf7 35.Nxc5 Bxc5 36.Bxc5 Re8 37.Rxe8 Nxe8 38.Re2 Rb7 39.b4 f4>

  tpstar: 35 ... cxd6 36. Ne6+ Kf7 37. Nxf8 Kxf8 38. Bxf6 wins a piece, or 35 ... hxg5 36. Rxa6 Rf7 37. Re2 Rb8 38. Ree6 Rbf8 and White can trade down to a won K&P ending.
