Oct-29-07  piteira8: Nice finish. The black queen is lost or else e6 x f6 is deadly.
Oct-30-07  notyetagm: Mamedyarov is so tactically strong it is scary.
Oct-30-07  pawnofdoom: What a coincidence. Mamedyarov uses Re6 to win this game, and the league game today (30. Rxe6 taking a protected pawn with his rook, sacking it for a big attack)
