Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-07-12  vinidivici: nice little trick. Mamedyarov ignoring the threat of pawn promotion and played himself his pawns with the threat of checkmate.
Sep-07-12  TheFocus: Wow! Great game. Shak rocks the house!
Sep-10-12  hedgeh0g: Lovely game. Mamedyarov's play has been nothing short of spectacular in this tournament.
Sep-10-12  hcgflynn: I think what is brilliant in this endgame for white is that 43. - b2 also loses for black due to 44. Kf6! Ne4+ 45. Kg6 and now the knight is blocking the b1-h7 diagonal, therefore there is no check after 45. - b1=Q.
Sep-11-12  Tigercock: GOTD: Socko to em'
