  Chessical: Mamedyarov's suffers a momentary but disastrous episode of chess blindness. His <21...g5??> simply overlooks that after <Be3> his Rook has no safe retreat squares. Could Mamedyarov have convinced himself that <22.Bc1?> was somehow mandatory after which the simple <23.Re8> is very strong?

It seems he had to play <21...d2> 22.Bxd2 Rxd2 23.Rxc4 Rb8 (or Bd1!?)
