May-01-05  Poisonpawns: This is an amazing game,I couldn`t understand at first why black lost.Nor could i understand,why Huebner didnt just play 24...Re8 but after 25.Bd5 Be6 26.Bxe6 fxe6 27.Rxe6!! with forced mate in 8# (thx fritz).So 24.a6 Bd5! and its over,amazing how the formation of the pieces and pawns on d3,d4,d5,d6 create a wall cutting blacks mobilty and the defense of the Kingside.Brilliant game by Timman one of my favorites.
May-09-05  azaris: <I remembered this game because I served as a commentator on the German TV station WDR which was covering this match between the Dutch GM and Germany's top player. GM Helmut Pfleger, the host of the coverage, would fire questions at me in German and I would demonstrate my limited knowledge of the language; Pfleger (in German): "Larry, who is the favorite in this match?" Christiansen: "Timman's bishops are very strong." Pfleger: "Larry, tell us about your encounters with these players." Christiansen: "Hübner has development problems.">
