Gata Kamsky enjoyed a fine tournament at the FIDE World Cup in Tromso, Norway. He battled his way to the quarterfinals, at which point he was eliminated by Evgeny Tomashevsky of Russia. Here is his quarterfinals win against the Azeri, Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, the world No. 7 and the 2013 World Rapid champion. In this game, Kamsky uncharacteristically sacrifices a piece, which Mamedyarov accepts but defends poorly and loses to a mating attack.
