Oct-15-06  Jafar219: 8.Nh4 what a tactical move!!
Amazing game!
Oct-15-06  aw1988: 8. Nh4 is not a very impressive move. Oh, it's good, but it hardly deserves praise. Once you've played 7. d5 this is practically forced, and it has been played by other players numerous times before.

  tamar: I believe 8 Nh4 was invented by Polugaevsky, at least I remember the buzz when he won the following game Polugaevsky vs Korchnoi, 1980
Oct-18-06  positionalgenius: Yes,Nh4 isn't new.But a good game by a rising star.
Oct-18-06  ahmadov: It looks like the whole game was Shak's home preparation. Well-played!
Oct-18-06  ahmadov: It is because of such games that I believe that Shak will be an undisputed chess champion in the future.
Oct-19-06  aw1988: Not world champion though.
Oct-20-06  ahmadov: <aw1988: Not world champion though.> LOL. Well said. Actually missing the word "world" puts me in a safer place. :))

But indeed I meant "undisputed world chess champion".

Oct-20-06  ahmadov: <aw1988> By the way, where has your wolf gone?
Oct-20-06  aw1988: It was shot. But it had a litter, so as soon as one of those is old enough it should look like the old one.
Aug-26-09  meth0dSNK: thumbs down
Sep-01-09  meth0dSNK: 6... d6
Nov-08-09  Plato: <meth0dsnk: <thumbs down> <6... d6>> Nope. 6....0-0 is the main move and perfectly fine for Black. It's been played by Karpov, Ivanchuk, Adams, Kramnik, etc...

If there was an inaccuracy in the opening the first was probably 12...dxe4, since 12...Bf6 can equalize.

Feb-07-10  hedgeh0g: <meth0dsnk: <thumbs down> <6... d6>> ...d6 is just a waste of tempo, because Black is looking to play ...d5 immediately in this line. Also, a general rule when facing gambits is to castle when you get the opportunity.

<Plato><If there was an inaccuracy in the opening the first was probably 12...dxe4, since 12...Bf6 can equalize.>

Actually, I don't think it does. The main idea behind Mamedyarov's improvement of 12.Re1 (as opposed to 12.Nc3) is that the usual ...Bf6 can be answered by 13.e5!

<ahmadov>, taken from NIC Mag 2006 08..

"It is funny that chess players and journalists who later analysed this game thought that I caught the contender on home preparation, because I played so strongly and rapidly. But this is certainly not so. It just was my day!"

- GM Shakhriyar Mamedyarov

Nov-14-15  onam: 18. Bf4 White has no good square for this bishop; therefore, it is quite logical to trade it.
