Nov-19-08  VardanP: Bravo Akopian. My sincere congratulations!! Great victory and great novelty 21.Qg4!!

Nov-20-08  hovik2003: simply Mamedyarov got crushed by great Vladimir Akopian! Glad to see Akopian back in his good form.
Nov-20-08  Strongest Force: Nice game by Akopian. He made Shak look like a schmuck.
Nov-20-08  ahmadov: Yes, a well-played game by Akopian... However, Shark should not get upset after this loss because his team needs him very much to win the tournament...
Nov-20-08  muradov: I just found out that Akopian was born in Baku..yet, another student of Azerbaijan chess school (like Kasparov and so many others..), so we have a win-win situation here :)
Nov-20-08  ahmadov: <muradov: I just found out that Akopian was born in Baku..yet, another student of Azerbaijan chess school (like Kasparov and so many others..), so we have a win-win situation here :)> LOL

Akopian being from Baku is a well-known fact... Among those who was born in Baku are Emil Sutovsky, Sergey Kasparov and a few more... (I do not remember now, a bit sleepy after a two day tour within the country)

  Eyal: Interesting to follow the route of the white queen in this game:

d2-d4-e5-g3-g6-<g4> (the novelty, instead of 21.Qd3 and Qxf7+ that were played before) - <h3> (tucking the queen at the edge of the board, to keep the pressure on e6) - <e3> (re-centralizing it) - <a7> (delivering the final blow on the other side of the board).

Mar-10-09  blacksburg: Akopian was clearly cheating here. there's no way mamedyarov would lose a fairly contested game. <3.d4> is Rybka's first line, how could Akopian possibly have found this move without computer assistance?
Aug-12-09  Vakus: lol <blacksburg>, i guess his assistant was Mr. Kurnosov :), u know what i mean...

<Azerbaijan chess school>... lmao <win-win situation> :))))) like this kind of win-wins, since the score is 1-0 :))
