Apr-30-06  whatthefat: What an astonishing game! Mamedyarov is playing some really dynamic chess at the moment. 26.d5 follows the plan, but it's still incredibly hard to play given the material imbalance already on the board.

I'd very much like to see a computer analysis after 27.Qxa1. White is a rook down for the pawns, but what pawns they are! I can't see a significant improvement for black after that, but perhaps I'm missing something.

  offramp: The promotion to a rook is quite good; maybe there was no other white queen around. Black has to recepture anyway so it didn't make much difference.

He is clearly a player to watch.
