Feb-13-05  Clubfoot: Who could have expected Black's 17th move?? Timman must have seen the shape of things to come when he figured out a drawing line and got out of Dodge.

What a brilliant tactical shot!

May-29-15  SpiritedReposte: The knight jumps to a square protected by 2 pieces and 2 pawns lol. Wonder if it was opening preparation.

What a brilliant tactical shot!>

Garry has produced an astounding number of tactical shots throughout his lustrous career, but this particular shot is one of the least admirable.
