  Penguincw: The finish: if 41.Nxf7, then 41...Rxe1+ 42.Rxe1 c1=Q 43.Rxc1 Bxc1, and black is up the full exchange, and with pawns on both sides of the board, it's going to be an easy win for black.

Black was already better, but 36.Bxf3 looked like the final mistake, and Kasimdzhanov was able to successfully punish Mamedyarov despite being under time pressure (just like Grischuk did to him yesterday).

Feb-16-15  Mr. V: Great game! Perhaps Kasimdzhanov's best in a long time.
Feb-17-15  DiscoJew: Lively classical positional attacking gem from the old World Champ. Shak tries to start a flank attack too soon, when the centre situation has yet to be resolved and is still in a state of flux. Kasim sacks a piece to keep the king stuck in the centre and forces his way into the disharmonious white position. Lovely game to watch I agree with mr. V. Kasimdzanov can never be underestimated as a universal super GM, his next great masterpiece just lurks around the corner!
