Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-11-06  bane77: 27.Bf4?? (27.fxg3= fxg2 28.Kxg2 Qf3+ 29.Kh2 Qa8 30.Ra4! Nf3+ 31.Kh1 Ne1 32.Qe4) How about 23...g3 24.h3 Nc4!? pointing at b2 pawn.
Or 24.Bb7!? instead od 24.Qc2 in the game?
Looks like after move 22...Qh5 black is winning but in fact the position is equal but complicated.
Feb-11-06  percyblakeney: It looks good for black also after 27. fxg3, I think it's hard to save it for white by then, for example 27. fxg3 fxg2 28. Kxg2 Qf3+ 29. Kh2 Rb6 and there's no good way to save the bishop (30. Ra4 Rxa6 31. Rxa6 Ng4+ with mate to follow).
Feb-11-06  ahmadov: Mamedyarov gives a very good analysis to this game on The interview with Mamedyarov is very interesting and lively.
Feb-11-06  ahmadov: Mamedyarov says White's 13.Qb3 was inaccuracy. Fritz offers 13.0-0 for white.
