  Gypsy: This was incredibly subtle play!! It feels as if Mamedyarov were channeling Capablanca, or Flohr during his best years. Mamedyarov gives performances of a future world champion. Hopefully, he will retain his will to win.
Oct-07-07  pawnofdoom: This win gave Mamedyarov a performance that is just a little more than 10 points away from 3000 at this point in the tournament. Weird how white wins the endgame, despite having a knight against black's good bishop
Oct-07-07  Bobsterman3000: On the live broadcast everyone was calling for 26.Nxf6 (even though it's not really winning). Shakh saw much deeper.

What a tremendous win by Mamedyarov.

Oct-07-07  Akavall: Nice win!
Oct-08-07  ahmadov: After Ordix, I thought this year was a bad one for Shark, but his performance in Antalya, particularly this game shows he is still in great form...
Oct-08-07  sigi: This game illustrates Capablanca's theorem: Queen and Knight are better than Queen and Bishop.
Oct-08-07  pawnofdoom: <Bobsterman3000> You mean 26. ♘xg6+? I guess that leads to 26. ... hxg6 27. ♕xg6 which threatens 28. ♕g8# but the threat can easily be stopped by 27. ... ♕g7
Jul-24-15  upmitvaliant8791: Superb skills demonstrated by Shakh!
