|Apr-24-08|| ||whiteshark: Maybe <28...Nb6 29.f5 exf5 30.Qxf5 Qe6> would have been a safer way.

|Apr-24-08|| ||luzhin: 37..Kh7 38.Qxa8 Rxa8 39.Rf7 Rd8 40.Rxd7! would certainly have been a brutal execution.|
|Apr-24-08|| ||ketchuplover: impressive|
|Apr-24-08|| ||ChessNe1: Carlsen didn't play up to his usual optimum manner, but was opting for the draw, imho. He had no real chance for counterplay, and his development didn't serve his piece placement. an off day for the young champ. is he weak vs. 1.d4?|
|Apr-24-08|| ||percyblakeney: Well played by Mamedyarov, last year he won some very nice games against for example Topalov, Kamsky and Ivanchuk (twice), but has seemed in much worse form lately. It must feel very good for him to get this win at home.|
|Apr-24-08|| ||notyetagm: Shak! Shak! Shak! Shak!
|Apr-25-08|| ||goldenbear: 7.Re1 is unusual (although apparently it is often played). Seems like 7.c5 would be a strong reply.|
|Apr-25-08|| ||Karpova: Magnus Carlsen: <"He just found the best moves and won in very good style.">|
|Apr-25-08|| ||ahmadov: Wow, what a game! Well done Shark!|
|Apr-25-08|| ||ahmadov: <Karpova: Magnus Carlsen: <"He just found the best moves and won in very good style.">> Actually, this shows how good gentleman Carlsen is...|
|Apr-25-08|| ||popski: Final position is tricky:
37...♔h7 38.♕xa8 ♖xa8 39. ♖f7! ♖d8 40.♖xd7 ♖xd7 41.♘xf8+ ♔g8 42.♘xd7
|Apr-25-08|| ||KarAkter: In my opinion 9...c6 is suspicious.9...c5 is more active,for example:10.d5 Qc7(d6,ed5 and Qb8 is played before) 11.Nf3 Ne4 12.Lf4(or 12.Nc3 f5)Qb7 13.Nc3 f5 and black is good|
|Apr-26-08|| ||ketchuplover: I think 18...Nxe5 was worth a look|
|Apr-29-08|| ||KarAkter: About 18...Ne5?!.After simple 19.de5 i didnīt find any good variation for black.What is idea of Ne5?|

|May-04-08|| ||shahjinan: Hey...what if ...Kh7 38.Qxa8 Rxa8 39.Rf7 Bxa3!!!!??????|
It seems games won't end that fast after Bxa3? Please analyze this...
|May-04-08|| ||shahjinan: still End game can be easily win by him...|
|May-04-08|| ||chancho: Carlsen had been getting the better of Shak in previous games, so this must have been a most satisfying win.|
|Jun-24-08|| ||notyetagm: One of Mamedyarov's best games.
|Jun-24-08|| ||Gilmoy: 31.Bxa5 <He who Shaks first, wins!>|
|Mar-11-09|| ||dumbgai: Rybka analysis shows that Mamedyarov clearly cheated in this game.|
|Sep-11-09|| ||VishyAnandFan: the piece sac was very impressive, shakhriyar shows what is possible in attack. he sacrifices positionally only to finish tactically, it reminds me of tal|
|Mar-24-11|| ||Garech: Awesome play from Mamedyarov - my money is on him making the finals of the candidate's tournament.|
|Apr-21-15|| ||ToTheDeath: Great piece sac! Shak must have seen he'd get several pawns and a serious initiative even if he didn't see it all the way through.|
