May-28-16  Everett: Seirawan has had some good wins with White in this line. Black certainly had a tough time untangling. Nice to see Mamedyarov bounce back so quickly.
May-29-16  Ulhumbrus: 11...h6 disturbs the king side pawns without necessity. If Black wants to unpin his king's knight and answer Bxf6 with ...gxf6 one alternative is 11...Ne7 12 Bxf6 gxf6 so that the other knight can come to g6 to help defend the king side as in the game Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1974

  thegoodanarchist: Seems like Black can play on after 59...b5:

60.Nd5+ Kc4

But after further study, instead White can play 60.Nd7 b4 (what else?) 61.Nxe5 Nh8 62.Ng6

Jun-10-16  patzer2: Black seems to be Ok up until 40...Rd7? which allows the strong 41. f5! .

Instead, 40...Rd6 = continues to hold as it stops the threat of 41. f5 and the subsequent passed h-pawn (e.g. 40...Rd6 41. f5? hxg4 42. h5? exf5 .)
