Mar-26-05  aw1988: Bagirov's last game... is this the one he died in? White does not look to be winning.
May-27-07  willyfly: According to <Bill Wall> Bagirov had a heart attack and died "right after time pressure and his flag fell." This must be his last game since the score shows he lost while the position shows black with the advantage of a pawn. Whatta way to go if you're a Chess Grandmaster - to lose due to time while holding an advantage.

Here is Bagirov's *last* position with white to move.

  alexmagnus: Bagirov had a heart attack, yes. But he didn't die at the board. He still survived that day and died on the day after.

Mar-05-11  tjipa: For those who read in Russian, here is a very insightful article on Bagirov's life - When I was an aspiring amateur, I did, for a couple of times, see Bagirov in Riga chess events in the 1980s-90s. What a presence. A great man.
