Round 3 of the Grand Prix London hasn't finished yet, however, an interesting miniature already took place: Shakhriyar Mamedyarov managed to beat Anish Giri in 21 moves.

Mamedyarov's queenside knight is not on d2 square in the picture, but as soon as Azerbaijani player placed it there it became the most important point of the game. This is what the winner told our correspondent after the game:

"Anish's play was correct, however all those ideas are correct when the knight is on c3. When the knight is on d2 black should hurry with the castling, while Anish didn't: Rc8, a6, c5... He was playing so quickly that I started to think that he caught me..."  

Mamedyarov's commentary is available in the audio player [in Russian].
