  perfidious: In The Art of Chess Analysis, Timman mentions a neat trap here: if Black imagines 7....Nc2+ will relieve his position, he is in for a rude awakening after 8.Qxc2 Nxe5 9.d4.

in his book The Art of Chess Analysis, Jan Timman stated, "Black should have resigned here. Unashamed, he plays on for some time."

  whiteshark: With 60.Kc5! Timman has found the only winning move.
Dec-25-11  cunctatorg: To my best understanding a monumental game regarding the Rook endings; already in move 30 Jan Timman had estimated that the resulting endgame is advantageous for White.
