  Penguincw: Wow! What a game! Karjakin gives up a rook for 2 minor pieces (22...bxc3) and then Mamedyarov gives the exchange with 31.Rxf6. However, black gives back the extra piece with 35...Nf4 to impede the white attack! This game reminds me of Christmas, where people keeping giving each other gifts...
Oct-29-14  chessastronomy: 8TH round game Mamedyarov vs Karjakin both players fight hard for GP Fide points since they are both behind five other players. A win for either player would have been GREAT !!! crucial to aim for Fide Grand Prix points, $, etc.!!! An interesting position arises after black offers its e5 pawn on move 13 but white passes only to accept it on move 18. N:e5. Interesting position on move 28...white has two central SCARY LOOKING passed pawns but the position is AMAzINGLY = . Mamedyarov may have tried for more than a draw but time scramble probably pushed him to settle for a clear equal position. Great Game !
