  luzhin: Yes, very nice: Mamedyarov simply had to play 22...g6. Once his kingside was bust open he didn't stand a chance.
Mar-10-09  blacksburg: karpov was cheating. he's so old, he doesn't even know how the pieces move anymore, how could he possibly have defeated mamedyarov without cheating? <4.Qc2> - just put the game through Rybka, Rybka thinks <4.Qc2> is ok! how could karpov have found this move without using Rybka? no way! FIDE should punish karpov for this blatant and obvious cheating!

He was joking about <Mamedyarov>'s cheating accusations from a few years back. I can't remember who <Shak> was accusing, but IIRC the accusation came out of thin air and had no foundation.

And 22..g6 was equal 22..Nd5? then a nice routine attack winning.
