A crazy position!

One highlight of each issue of the ChessBase Magazine is “The Analysis”, a deeply analysed, particularly interesting game, selected from the many annotated and interesting games in every issue. Not an easy task – just take a look at the list of authors who contributed analyses to CBM #204: Anton Demchenko, Romain Edouard, Viktor Erdos, Alireza Firouzja, Daniel Fridman, Anish Giri, Nils Grandelius, Niclas Huschenbeth, Maxime Lagarde, David Navara, Peter Heine Nielsen, Alexey Sarana, Ivan Saric, Hedinn Steingrimsson, Rasmus Svane and Vidit! This time, the game Mamedov-Lagarde from the European Individual Championship 2021, was chosen. Take a look at the diagram position after 14…Ke6, and you will know why! How could that position arise on the board? And how did the game continue? Curious?
