At the press conference Mamedyarov was asked how did he beat Andreikin in Round 4 of Candidates'.  

"My opponent played chess that I like," Azerbaijani GM said. "Dima decided to play an interesting, nice game, that's why it worked for me too. He could avoid it - for instance, he might have not played 14...е5. He could play some position chess like Lasker and then there would not be such a nice game."

"If I didn't believe that I could win Candidates' there wouldn't be any sense in having trainings, playing chess... I would just have some rest. But I believed and worked. I should keep trying. If you won't try, you won't ever forgive yourself. You should fight and I think I did everything for that. I still believe I have chances. I will keep fighting till the end."

After Round 4 Dmitry Andreikin occupies bottom of the table. According to him, "It's alright. Today was more or less adequate play. Maybe I will catch wave at the end of the competition." 

Dmitry became father right before the competition has started, "It of course influenced on the course of my preparation," he explained. "It's something that takes a lot of time, however, now it only has positive influence on me. Chess player needs positive emotions. We spent a lot of time with my daughter in Skype every evening."
