Levon Aronian gained an unexpectedly easy win in Round 2 of Candidates'. His opponent, Shakhriyar Mamedyarov of Azerbaijan, blundered the queen right after the opening. 

Well, he got the rook and the knight for the queen, however, both GMs agreed that White's position is close to winning after 18th move.  


Mistake, from a "human point of view", was already 11...h6.
12.Bxf6 Qxf6 13.f5 The machine suggests 13...Qg5 and sees no danger for Black.
At the press conference Mamedyarov said he saw that he was going to lose queen right when started moving his kinght. Nonetheless he decided to to move it on e7 instead of h8 and let come what may.  
13...Ne7 14.Nde4 dxe4 15.Nxe4 Qh4 16.g3 Qh3 17.Nf2 Qxf1+ 18.Kxf1 и т.д. 1-0

Aronian noted this was a tactical blunder, it frequently happens to those players who have highly developed tactical vision.
