  whiteshark: "It became known during the press-conference that Gata Kamsky was very well prepared against this line in Slav with a6. Black traded few pieces and the game was quickly converted into the ending with queen and bishop against queen and knight. There was an interesting opportunity, mentioned by Shakhriyar, to create quite dangerous threats on the king’s side by playing <31…h4!?>* but the game ended with perpetual check. "

Jul-07-13  Everett: Gata and Mamedyarov have had absolute wars in these Slav lines over the years. They are incredibly entertaining, and even likely instructive for those with some ambition. They know what the other is going to play and then they simply have at it.

If only one makes it to the candidates, perhaps the other could become a tremendous training partner.
