Nice video, as always.

I think that any accusations need evidence. Here there is none. If Black had gone away and analysed the game, I doubt his reaction would've been the same.

I think this was a wonderful game by Mamedyarov showing how to take advantage of your opponents mistakes.

Kurnosov's opponent needs to apologize.
