  whiteshark: Impressive strong play by Mamedyarov - he attacks quite energically here. Well, not only here...
Nov-03-11  bronkenstein: <impressive> Is the word , Italian made 3 or 4 moves on his own before he could freely resign.

PS Mamed`s future seems to be secured - Azeri oil money , or he can go swiss farming.

  Shams: 70 prior games and Mamedyarov's 6.Nce2 is a novelty to the db: Opening Explorer

<hedgeh0g> I can't see anything wrong with your move.

<14.Nf5!> invites Black to play 14...cxd2 15.Nxg7+ Ke7 16.Nxe6? dxc1=Q with everything to play for. But 16.Bxd2 and Black must resign as the Queen has no squares.
