Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-01-05  ahmadov: This is one of my best games in this tournament and it certainly goes to my collection of azeri player's masterpieces
Jan-26-07  GrandPatzerSCL: What a nice game!!! Look at all those threats in the final position!!!
Nov-22-08  notyetagm: When I watched this game live, I was wondering how Radjabov would play against his favorite opening, the King's Indian.

Just like when Fischer faced one of his favorite openings, Radjabov chose a dangerous sideline, the <Makogonov system 5 h2-h3>.

Sep-08-13  iamdeafzed: Black's rook is attacked in the end position, it only has two safe squares it can flee to, and both choices lose quickly:

And the black bishop will fall, along with black's king shortly thereafter.

45.Qf6+; Kh7
46.Qxf7+, and checkmate next move
