|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.|
|Dec-28-15|| ||scholes: bishop sac would be good sunday puzzle|
|Dec-28-15|| ||perfidious: <ToTheDeath....Shak must have seen he'd get several pawns and a serious initiative even if he didn't see it all the way through.>|
It is usually neither necessary nor desirable to try seeing everything to the end--take it from someone who was adept at trying in my playing days.
|Feb-07-16|| ||SimplicityRichard: <It is usually neither necessary nor desirable to try seeing everything to the end...>|
A most true statement in my view; it not only applies in chess but in life as well.#

that needs no real analysis..
if 39...Bxa3? simply 40.bxa wins outright.
black has 3 options:
1) protect the knight..
if either 40...Rd8 or 40...Ra7 then
white captures RxN RxR and Nf8+ forks, as pointed out by popski.
2) move the knight..
if 40...Nb8 41. Rf8 mates in the corner, and with 40...Nb6 white simply pushes the pawn 41. e6 Re8 42. e7 Nd7 43. Rf8 Nxf8 44. exf8=Q Rxf8 45. Nxf8
3) sac the knight
if Rxa3 41. Rxd7 and now ..Ra8 (forced since white will play Rd8 and mate in the corner) and there follows 42. e6 Rb8 43. e7 b4 44. Rd8
OR if white gets annoyed that black won't resign, and has time on the clock, he could play silly and make a laughing stock of black with 42. Rb7 Kg8 43. e6 Re8 44. d5 b4 45. Rxb4 Kh7 46. e7 Kg8 47. Rf4 Kh7 48. d6 Kg8 49. d7 Kh7 50. Nf8+ Rxf8 51. exf8=N+ Kg8 52. Ng6 Kh7 53. Kh3 Kg8 54. Rf8+ Kh7 55. Rh8#
|Mar-05-18|| ||PawnSac: < <goldenbear: 7.Re1 is unusual (although apparently it is often played).
Seems like 7.c5 would be a strong reply.>|
..c5 is a move. There are several options
|Mar-05-18|| ||PawnSac: and BTW, he seems quite fond of this line.
There are 12 of his games in the database
of which he won 8, 7 as white 1 as black.
|Mar-05-18|| ||PawnSac: here's a game with chucky later the same year (in August) at the Tal Memorial
in which he replied 7..c5 to Shak's 7.Re1
Mamedyarov vs Ivanchuk, 2008
