Jan-15-09  blacksburg: 47. i scored over par, but i missed a LOT of moves, so i don't think i deserve par. maybe too much partial credit, maybe.
Dec-26-12  leka: Jan Timman the opening is a poor one.The move 8..c5?? the whole plan is not a correct one.Timman should have played a slav defence or something better than this one
