  tamar: Three sacrifices in a row starting at move 26 to clear the way for the remaining rook to mate on h8. Very impressive rout by Mamedyarov, who deserves to play in Group A next year.

Feb-01-05  notyetagm: Nice game.
Feb-24-05  CHEG: Isn't Rh8 not only check but checkmate?
Jun-13-05  ahmadov: <CHEG:> It is. I think it is a mistake by
Jun-13-05  gladiator367: kakaya crisiviya!!
Nov-21-05  weisyschwarz: Another example as to why kings should not put out fires. Black was not playing bad...until the fire started.
Jan-06-06  olav dalkeith: Ernst looked to be one piece down for most of the game. He not once moved his knight on b8!
Apr-15-07  Achilles87: Is there much wrong with 17...Rg4
Feb-11-09  kellmano: Needlessly flash, but a very nice finish nevertheless. Reminds me of the time when the shark could've been a contender.
Feb-11-09  ahmadov: <Reminds me of the time when the shark could've been a contender.> Is it not too early to say that? He will certainly gain his previous form and show us more interesting games again soon...
