Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-25-19  Ulhumbrus: The commentators' remarks or the computer evaluations or the player's remarks afterwards suggest that 17 Be3? is the move which lose a pawn and passes the advantage to Black.

There is more than one explanation for the mistake.

One example of a possible reason is nervous tension from which probably both players are suffering during this phase.

Another example of a possible reason is that the time controls are shortened which means that the players don't have time to think.

Another example of a possible reason is that Mamedyarov is in the wrong state of mind for this type of game.

Perhaps all three reasons applied to both of the players after the time limits were lowered.
