Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-21-07  Karpova: Congratulations to Navara for winning the Ordix Open!

Navara won with 9.5/11 in front of Mchedlishvili and Sasikiran (both had 9.5 points also). It was a disappointing tournament for the 2700+:
14. Ivanchuk (+6 =5)
18. Kamsky (+8 =1 -2)
32. Akopian (+7 =2 -2)
33. Grischuk (+7 =2 -2)
34. Shirov (+6 =4 -1)
59. S. Mamedyarov (+7 =1 -3)

Andersson left after round 6

Aug-25-07  notyetagm: Another disastrous second half for Mamedyarov, going +2 =1 -3 on the second day after going 5/5 on the first day.
Aug-26-07  you vs yourself: <notyetagm> Maybe they play weak players in the first half. 2nd year in a row, Mamed fell apart. I didn't check, but I'm guessing the top players don't usually play against each other in the first half.

It's not just the Ordix Open.

Last year at the Tal Memorial Blitz tournament, Mamedyarov started out 7/7 and then collapsed completely after that. I think he finished at around +3, which means that he was +7(!) in the first 7 games and then -4 in the remaining rounds.

Mamedyarov keeps doing this, falling apart completely after brilliant starts. That first loss he suffers must kill his confidence or something. At Ordix this year he blundered and needlessly lost to Navara for his first loss and then it was all downhill after that.
