  HeMateMe: Impressive how Mamey kept control of that passed pawn, and the game. On the razor's edge.
Jul-07-13  Nezhmetdinov: Blimey.
Jul-07-13  Everett: I don't understand half the moves in this game. I do know that I would be willing to sac a piece for his d-pawn in any game he has White. He seems always able to drive it straight into the heart of his opponents' positions time and again.
Jul-08-13  FamilyTree: Nice game by Mamedyarov.
GM Ipatov's Commentary of the game in <25.d5 Opening up the position to get to Black's king!>

You're right Ipatov, but the problem is that 25.d5? allows the black Queen to defend the kingside, and at the same time the b2 pawn is not blockaded anymore. Mamedyarov lost all his advantage after 25.d5? The computers suggest 25.Rfe1 wich seems very logical.

Almost every annotated game in is pure crap. It looks like the annotators dont want to spend more than 5 minutes analysing the games. The exeptions are when 2700's players annotate, Giri and sometimes Caruana.

Perhaps chessbase could use your services.

Jul-08-13  DoctorD: There does appear to be a lot of lazy annotating these days, but I wonder if this has not always been the case and it is simply easier for the amateur player backed up with computers to notice this. Years ago, the "master's word" would have been accepted without much question.
Jul-08-13  Everett: There is an easy response to these complaints, and it has worked for every great player; work on your own chess understanding and wean yourself off of everyone but the most trusted sources for guidance.

As proof, I have critically assessed your contribution as worthy! ;-)

Jul-08-13  Shams: <Everett> Have any thoughts on my query here?

Reti Opening (A04)

By the way Delchev's book is quite interesting.

Jul-08-13  haydn20: 25. Rfe1 looks logical because of the pressure on e6 & e7, and it seems to work out tactically. 25. d5 was not horrible however, tho' Black (IMO) could have lightened his load with 26...b2. Finally, simply 30...exd5 and White hasn't much but the perp.
Jul-08-13  haydn20: Also, 35. Qh5!? (35. Qf3!) Kxe6! and amazingly Black's K is safe (I think), as it would be after 37... Kxe6 too(OC 37...Kd8? loses as in the game). I suspect that Black had a time problem. BTW, does this patzerish looking opening with poor dewvelopment and many Q-moves have a name other than D10 Slav: general?
Jul-08-13  Everett: <Shams> thanks for tracking me down. I'll respond on that page.
