Oct-02-04  tomh72000: <acirce> Correct, his regime is not comparable to the Soviets teritorily, but in terms of the media control, domestic policy, lack of opposition etc, there are similarities in my view.
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: Well.. what I meant was that <BradMajors> mentioned Azerbaijan and Ukraine in his post, not Russia. And yes, there are some similarities.
Oct-02-04  tomh72000: <Well.. what I meant was that <BradMajors> mentioned Azerbaijan and Ukraine in his post, not Russia.> Yes, I see what you mean now.
Nov-02-04  BradMajors: no pun intended :)
Aug-04-05  roni.chessman: <I wonder why so many young great GM's are spawning from Azerbaijan and Ukraine...>

Even the first person to break 2800 ELO came from azerbaijan. Kasparov should speak kindly about Radjabov... they are both from BAKU!

Mar-02-06  Jafar219: Did you know that Gadir is the youngest International Master in chess history?? He become IM at age 8.
Mar-02-06  petrovalovski: yeah right....
Apr-02-06  WTHarvey: Gadir moved up a couple rungs on the FIDE Juniors list to #10 in April. Here are a dozen of his winning otb combinations:
Apr-02-06  Eastfrisian: He won the Championship of Azerbeijan in the year 2002.
Jul-26-06  KingG: Fairly interesting interview with Guseinov here:

Interesting that he doesn't mention Kasparov at all. You would think that he would be a big inspiration for a player from Azerbaijan.

Dec-23-06  BIDMONFA: Gadir Guseinov


Apr-23-08  zoat22: no bio?
Jun-21-08  brankat: Happy Birthday Gadir!
Jun-21-08  square dance: yes, happy birthday to gadir! he's a nice guy. ive spoken with him on a couple of occasions. mostly about some KID variations.
Apr-17-09  latviangambit: Yes indeed, Gadir seems like a very nice person...i played in a simul against him and got a draw...i was very happy as you can imagine...after the game we chatted a little bit and i was greatly impressed that he spent some time with me :)

  wordfunph: GM Gadir Guseinov vs Philippine pride GM Wesley So in the 2009 WC 1st round...hmmmmm...
Nov-04-09  znnnk: whoever wins in So-Guseinov will most likely meet Ivanchuk in the next round.
Nov-07-09  SugarDom: Two young guns Wesley So and Gadir Guseinov meeting in the first round....

It's going to be tough...

Nov-08-09  kurtrichards: Kaya 'yan.
Nov-08-09  kurtrichards: Believe.
Sep-28-10  muradov: Gadir has been performing up to the par in the current Chess Olympiads. I hope his recent good form continues. Well done!

  GrahamClayton: Extensive analysis of Guisenov's 8.0-0 novelty for White against the Sicilian Paulsen:

Premium Chessgames Member
  Maatalkko: Surprising that his rating has dropped 83 points from its peak. You don't usually see that kind of decline in a 24 year old player. However, he is 3/3 so far in the Euro Individual Championships, so maybe he will return to form.
Mar-30-11  hellopolgar: he just got demolished by Judit. can't be good for his self-confidence.
