  tamar: Mamedyarov has a risky exciting style and puts a lot of pressure on his opponents. Nijboer played a series of second best moves from a nearly won position and then blundered with 29 Qf4? when he could have survived and even been better with 29 Rd2

  DiceToThat: Could someone tell me what is wrong with 29. Rxf7+? It seems like it really gives white a good chance to break up black's attack.

  tpstar: <DiceToThat> 29. Rxf7+ Qxf7 30. Bxf7 Rxb2+ 31. Ka1 Rcc2 creates the mate threat 32 ... Rxa2+ 33. Kb1 Nc3#. Now Rook moves preventing this (32. Rxa4/Rd3) lose to 32 ... Rxb3+ 33. Rd4 Rc1#. White should try 32. Qe1 hoping for 32 ... Nc3? 33. Qe8#, but instead 32 ... Rxa2+ 33. Kb1 Rab2+ 34. Ka1 Re2 should do it = 35. Qxe2 Rxe2 wins the Rd4; 35. Qb4 Rxb3!; 35. Qd1 Ra2+ 36. Kb1 Nc3+; 35. Qf1 Ra2+ 36. Kb1 Nc3+ 37. Kc1 Rac2#; 35. Qg3 Be5. Check these lines.
Jan-25-05  mirunik: Can anybody explain me... why black on 27-th move didn't play rxc2 for example if white plays 28.rf4 than...28...rxb2+ ! 29.ka1 rxa2+!30kb1 nc3+31.kc1 ne4+32.kd1 qc2+33.ke1 qe2#

  tpstar: 27 ... Rxc2?? 28. Qh7+ Kf8 29. Bxc2 holds.

  InspiredByMorphy: <tpstar> Will you check this game out for me when youve got a chance? I am very interested in playing this line as black, and am trying to find improvements for white. Ive noticed that if white doesent play 7.Nxc7+ or at least delays it, white seems to have better chances. What do you think? NN vs Bird, 1850
Mar-28-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: I can't help the feeling that Mamedyarov plays some magic tricks to end up victorious.
Mar-28-06  russep: Attacks by both sides.
Aug-14-06  aw1988: Some nice variations here by tpstar, thanks. At your request, checking the lines, they seem correct.
