After a horrible start of 0.5/3, Mamedyarov made his come back into the tournament with his 2 White wins over Andreikin and Svidler. In the current game, I guess both players were quickly out of theory and the game got pretty messy, but in the complications Svidler made a terrible blunder with 24...h6, after which the game was practically lost.

In this special weekly column we will be looking at the most unexpected upsets that happened last week. Players usually face opponents of a similar level. Considerably less frequent are situations when a significantly lower-rated player succeeds in beating a much stronger adversary.
