Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-20-06  OJC: Karpov's dubious novelty 15. c5 is nicely handled by Timman. After the strong moves 16. ...b4, 17. ...Ne5 and 18. ...Nd3, Timman has a rook for a knight and pawn.
Jul-01-09  Knight13: Yes. He must've missed 16...b4!!
Jul-16-11  ycpl: Why 9... Nfd7 and not Nbd7?

  Sastre: <ycpl: Why 9... Nfd7 and not Nbd7?> 9...Nbd7 allows 10.Nxc6.
Mar-02-17  Gottschalk: 16...b4! If 18. de5 Qd4+ re-takes piece(Bb4).
May-07-19  OrangeTulip: In the database are against Karpov 30 losses, 8 victories and, of course, 64 draws of Timman.
Apr-07-20  joddon: must say nice game!
