|Dec-01-05|| ||notyetagm: The point is that after 32 hxg3 fxg3 White is one tempo short of stopping the standard h-file mating idea of 33 ... ♕h4+ 34 ♔g1 ♕h2+ 35 ♔f1 ♕h1#. That is, in the following position White is one tempo short of stopping this mating sequence:|
click for larger view
White is one tempo short of stopping the mate down the h-file because he needs to clear both the e2-queen and the f1-rook self-blocks for his king <but he has only one move to move both pieces>. If either piece had not been on these respective squares, the sacrifice would not have been sound because the White king would have been able to flee to safety in the center of the board via ♔h1-g1-f1-e2.
|Dec-08-05|| ||ahmadov: This guy gave an interview to the world chess cup official web site, in which he also speaks about Radjabov. To my great surprise, the reporter names the interview "Murtaz Kazgaleev: Radjabov didnít impress me.", in which Murtaz does not say anything of this kind. He speaks about Radjabov's problems but does not say that Teimour had not surprised him.|

|Oct-23-15|| ||Retireborn: In New in Chess his name is spelt "Kazhgaleev", which I suppose is cognate with names like Bareev and Dreev, but demonstrates again the difficulties of consistent transliteration.|
