Jan-09-10  notyetagm: I don't understand how you can be 2471-rated to my lowly 1877 USCF rating and push all the pawns in front of your king like White does in this game. My coach would have a fit if I played like this.
Jan-09-10  Bdellovibrio: White does not look 2400+ here. I'm not trying to detract from Mamedyarov's extraordinary accomplishment, but Marshall Gambit QGD is not a good choice against top-form Shark. After this tournament, we might have to change Shakhriyar's nickname to "Jaws."
Jan-09-10  mrbasso: Unbelievable! Such a big chance to beat a 2700+ player will probably never come again for IM Ezat. He was virtually winning after a few moves. 14.Bxe5 is not so obvious however.
Jan-09-10  notyetagm: <Bdellovibrio: White does not look 2400+ here.>

Why you would play 17 b2-b4? followed by 18 a3-a4? when you are White, have already castled queenside, and your opponent is *clearly* going to castle into complete safety on the kingside is simply beyond my comprehension.

18 a3-a4?

My god, look how airy the White king position is!

It took me a second to understand this I suppose it goes 14.Bxe5 Bxf3 15.Bxf6! threatening Rd8#, or 14...Qxe5 15.Rd8+! Kxd8 16.Qd3+.
