Shakhriyar Mamedyarov Crushes Blitz Chess
Yep. While I’m working on the new Speed Cubing guide (I keep getting stuck on trivial things bleh) I inevitably fire up some Chess vids to get the creative juices pumping. Here we’ll have a look at my newest subject: GM Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, who is an absolute BEAST in both the Blitz Chess and Classical arenas, currently perched at 6th on the FIDE rankings list with a 2761 pile of points at press time. If you get seated with this guy, the fetal position is the only viable option.
Enjoy, I have to get back to work :)
Pretty sure you shouldn’t spot this guy your Queen at the end GM Bareev, tsk tsk:
Mamedyarov seems to like crushing World Champions in his spare time. Sigh:
Another famous scalp for the mantle?
Wow, these guys go at it like crazy! Looks like their club championship since there are alot of peeps watching/yapping:
