|Nov-20-08|| ||hovik2003: simply Mamedyarov got crushed by great Vladimir Akopian!
Glad to see Akopian back in his good form.
|Nov-20-08|| ||Strongest Force: Nice game by Akopian. He made Shak look like a schmuck.|
|Nov-20-08|| ||ahmadov: Yes, a well-played game by Akopian... However, Shark should not get upset after this loss because his team needs him very much to win the tournament...|
|Nov-20-08|| ||muradov: I just found out that Akopian was born in Baku..yet, another student of Azerbaijan chess school (like Kasparov and so many others..), so we have a win-win situation here :)|

Akopian being from Baku is a well-known fact... Among those who was born in Baku are Emil Sutovsky, Sergey Kasparov and a few more... (I do not remember now, a bit sleepy after a two day tour within the country)
|Nov-21-08|| ||Eyal: Interesting to follow the route of the white queen in this game:|
d2-d4-e5-g3-g6-<g4> (the novelty, instead of 21.Qd3 and Qxf7+ that were played before) - <h3> (tucking the queen at the edge of the board, to keep the pressure on e6) - <e3> (re-centralizing it) - <a7> (delivering the final blow on the other side of the board).
|Mar-10-09|| ||blacksburg: Akopian was clearly cheating here. there's no way mamedyarov would lose a fairly contested game. <3.d4> is Rybka's first line, how could Akopian possibly have found this move without computer assistance?|
|Aug-12-09|| ||Vakus: lol <blacksburg>, i guess his assistant was Mr. Kurnosov :), u know what i mean... |
<Azerbaijan chess school>... lmao
<win-win situation> :))))) like this kind of win-wins, since the score is 1-0 :))
