TEIMOUR RADJABOV
(born Mar-12-1987, 27 years old) Azerbaijan

[what is this?]
Teimour Radjabov was born March 12, 1987 in Baku and started playing chess when he was four years old. He became an International Master in 1999 at the age of 11 years and 11 months and in 2001, at the age of 14 years and 14 days, he became the youngest Grandmaster in the world at the time, and the second youngest person after Bu Xiangzhi ever to become a GM at that time. In January 2002, with a rating of 2599 he entered FIDE's World Top 100 rating list, the 2nd youngest to ever do so after Judit Polgar, with an initial world ranking of 93rd. He has remained on this list ever since. He became the youngest player ever to defeat long-time World Champion Garry Kasparov in 2003. That same year he tallied wins against FIDE World Champions Viswanathan Anand and Ruslan Ponomariov.

Championships

In 1994, Radjabov won an U9-Tournament in Dresden winning all games. He was U10 European Champion 1996 and 1997, and U12 European and World Champion in 1998. In 1999, he won the European Under-18 Championship when he was still 12, a record that still stands.

Radjabov’s first tilt at the world championship cycle was during the FIDE World Championship knockout tournament held in Moscow in 2002, where he lost in the first round to Jaan Ehlvest . In 2004, he made it to the semifinals of the FIDE World Championship Knockout Tournament, but lost to the British player Michael Adams after defeating Mateusz Bartel , Peter Heine Nielsen , Etienne Bacrot , Pavel Smirnov , and Leinier Dominguez Perez in preliminary rounds. In the FIDE World Cup (2005) qualifier, he bested Diego Flores and Murtas Kazhgaleyev before losing to Loek van Wely in round 3. In the World Chess Cup (2007) , he beat Vladimir Genba before bowing out to Bartlomiej Macieja in round 2. At the World Cup (2009) he defeated Mohamed Ezat but lost to Konstantin Sakaev in round 2. Despite his poor showing in the 2009 World Cup, Radjabov had placed second in the FIDE Grand Prix 2008–2010 series, qualifying him for the World Championship Candidates (2011) for the World Chess Championship 2012. There, Radjabov was eliminated in the quarterfinal by Vladimir Kramnik in blitz tiebreak after tieing the classical and rapid matches 2-2 each. By reason of his rating, he qualified for the World Cup (2011), where he defeated Cuban GM Francisco De la Paz Perdomo, Indian GM Parimarjan Negi, French GM Etienne Bacrot and Russian GM Dmitry Jakovenko in the early rounds, but lost to Ukrainian veteran, GM Vassily Ivanchuk, in their quarter final match. The sting of this loss was offset by being selected by the organisers to be the 8th Candidate at the World Championship Candidates (2013) that was held in London in March 2013, but he fared poorly, coming last with 4/14, losing half his games and shedding over 30 ratings points (for the rating period to 1 May 2013). He started participating in the 2012-13 Grand Prix, but his first foray in the series was the 3rd event, the FIDE Grand Prix Zug (2013), in which he placed equal last with 4.5/11. He subsequently withdrew from the Grand Prix series.

He qualified by rating to contest the World Cup (2013), where he defeated Jorge Cori in the first round and Cuban GM Lazaro Bruzon in the second round tiebreaker. He was defeated by Russian GM and former Candidate Peter Svidler in the third round. This loss combined with Levon Aronian 's elimination in the third round, means that he cannot qualify for the Candidates via rating replacement, as he is second rating reserve after Karjakin; in other words he needed Aronian and Kramnik - who are otherwise the rating qualifiers to the Candidates - to both win through to the World Cup final for him to qualify on rating for the Candidates.

Qualifying as one of the organizer's nominees to play in the Grand Prix series 2014-2015, Radjabov scored 5.5/11 and sole 8th in both the FIDE Grand Prix Baku (2014) and the FIDE Grand Prix Tashkent (2014), all but eliminating him from contention for one of the top two places in the Grand Prix series, and qualification for the Candidates Tournament 2016. He still has a chance to qualify for the Candidates through the 2015 World Cup.

Classical tournaments

Radjabov’s early successes include winning the 1998 Kasparov Cup, and in Budapest. In 2001:

- he took =1st in the Alushta Spring 2001 with Alexander Riazantsev and Alexander Goloshchapov, while he

- came =2nd with the legendary Viktor Korchnoi behind the even more legendary Anatoly Karpov at the Najdorf memorial.

In 2002:

- he took 2nd place behind Kasparov at the Moscow World Chess Grand Prix 2002.

In 2003:

- Radjabov blooded himself in the super tournaments at Corus, Linares and Dortmund such that in the following year at 21st Linares (2004) he scored an extremely creditable 6/12, placing =4th alongside Veselin Topalov , a point behind winner Kramnik and a half point behind joint second Kasparov and Peter Leko .

In 2005:

- he was outright 2nd behind Liviu Dieter Nisipeanu with 9.5/13 in the 6th European Individual Championship

- 1st at the powerful GM tournament at XIII Dos Hermanas (2005) and

- =6th with 6/9 behind the 5 joint first place getters by half point at Aeroflot A 2005.

The following year, in 2006:

- he came joint second at the prestigious Linares (2006) and

- =2nd at Biel Int'l Festival (2006) with Magnus Carlsen behind Alexander Morozevich.

Radjabov's greatest success yet came at the start of 2007, when he shared first place at the category 19 Corus (2007) with Topalov and Levon Aronian.

In 2008:

- he came first at Odessa Chess Tournament

- =3rd with Anand behind Carlsen and Aronian at Corus (2008)

- he scored 8/13 (+4 -1 =8) to share first place in the Elista Grand Prix (2008) with Alexander Grischuk and Dmitry Jakovenko

- he came 3rd at M-Tel 2008 behind Vassily Ivanchuk and Topalov.

In 2009 he scored 7.5/13 to come =2nd at Corus (2009) with Sergei Movsesian and Aronian half point behind Karjakin. At the King's Tournament (2010) he came =2nd with Boris Gelfand behind Carlsen and at the Tata Steel (2012), he came =2nd with 8/13 (+3 -0 =10; TPR 2834) behind Aronian and alongside Carlsen and Fabiano Caruana, the only undefeated player in the A group. In June 2012 he came =2nd (3rd on tiebreak) alongside Fabiano Caruana in the category 22 Tal Memorial (2012) with 5/9 (+2 -1 =6; TPR 2818) behind Magnus Carlsen. Following on from his poor performances at the Candidates and the Grand Prix event at Zug, Radjabov also fared poorly in the category XXI Norway Chess Tournament (2013), scoring 3/9 and losing another 12 rating points. His poor form continued at the Kings Tournament (2013), where his 3.5/8 (-1 =7) placed him 4th out of a field of 5. He returned to top chess at the inaugural Gashimov Memorial (2014), a category XXII 6-player DRR event to commemorate the late Azeri grandmaster, and scored 5/10 placing =3rd behind Carlsen and Caruana, picking up 11 rating points.

Team Competition

<Olympiads and other national team events> Radjabov has represented his native Azerbaijan at the Olympiads since 2002, and won his first medal at the Chess Olympiad (2012) when he won individual bronze on the top board. He played board 2 for Azerbaijan at the Chess Olympiad (2014) held in Tromsø in Norway. A regular participant in the European Team Championships since 2003, he led the Azerbaijani team to victory at the 17th European Team Championship (2009) in Novi Sad and in November 2011 to 2nd place at the European Team Championship (2011) at Porto Carras, Greece.

Feb-12-12  fisayo123: Radjabov deserves it. Lets not forget he nearly knocked out Kramnik if not for the clock incident.
Feb-12-12  frogbert: grischuk qualified through the 2011 wcc where he placed 2nd of 128 participants. it's not related to his 2011 candidates results at all.

polarmis, thanks for the information. then we're back to the scenario that was heavily discussed on aronian's page one week ago; the practice of selling a spot in the final 8 of a wc qualification event. it's unworthy and unprofessional. radjabov's skills are entirely irrelevant. (as polarmis argues, he would've claimed the spot if he were no. 15 too.)

go fide.

Yes, indeed. To be clear, I don't deny Grischuk's right to be in the candidates, I just find him to be a bit of a bummer for the reasons stated above. And I give him almost no chance to win the tournament. But of course he deserves to be there.

Feb-12-12  bronkenstein: Speaking of (un)deserved wildcards (no matter how abstract it might seem, since in reality the oil money and Kirsan`s greed had the last word =) , remember that Radja , unlike Topa + Naka , decided to play the World Cup . He came very far and had the honor to be eliminated , on tiebreaks, by one of the future candidates - Chucky that is.

  Eggman: <<remember that Radja , unlike Topa + Naka , decided to play the World Cup . He came very far and had the honor to be eliminated , on tiebreaks, by one of the future candidates>>

Interesting. So Radjabov becomes, as they say at Wimbledon, a "lucky loser."

Feb-12-12  jombar: <frogbert: radjabov was selected because the candidates are being paid for by azeri money.>

If I'm correct, I think I have just witnessed the first erroneous, distorted, false, paranoia kind of thinking frogbert ever ventured to produce. LOL!

Simply, there is no direct proof of your tall-tale story, that what you said is true; and it just shows how much you falsely and unjustly trying to injure Radjabov's reputation.

Just because you are a big fan of Naka and want Naka to be the best chess player there is, doesn't mean or justify you slandering, defaming Radjabov's reputation, as if the reason why he was selected for the Candidates was because of the "azeri money" and not his high rating and chess talent.

Radjabov was selected for maintaining a higher rating than the others; that's what the Organizers had stated; and that's reasonable enough, to select a higher rated player over a lower rated one.

Imho, Radjabov has more chess talent than Naka. Look at the rating gap between the two. That's my proof.

Feb-12-12  jombar: I guess, for Radjabov, being the top five player in the world right behind Anand - and with a 2785 rating performance - is not good enough (in SOME PEOPLE'S estimation) to be selected for the Candidates.

You must be kidding me, right?

Have we turned the world upside down?

Have the world been run by trolls?

Feb-12-12  frogbert: <for Radjabov, being the top five player in the world right behind Anand - and with a 2785 rating performance - is not good enough (in SOME PEOPLE'S estimation) to be selected for the Candidates.>

radjabov is an excellent chess player, and fide is first class comedy. the former has little impact on the latter.

btw, the technical term for the statement of yours that i quoted is a "strawman attack". you're attacking opinions nobody has voiced, jombar. :o)

Feb-12-12  jombar: <btw, the technical term for the statement of yours that i quoted is a "strawman attack". you're attacking opinions nobody has voiced, jombar.>

First of all, I'm not attacking - only expressing my opinions.

Thanks for keeping a cool scalp <frogbert> against my "attack."

I don't mean anything personal. I'm just taking a swing at the pinata. ; )

Feb-12-12  frogbert: jombar, see what i wrote:

<you're attacking opinions nobody has voiced, jombar.>

i didn't say that you attacked anyone. i said you attacked irrelevant opinons - opinions nobody has. :o)

Feb-12-12  frogbert: btw - what kind of opinions are these?

<You must be kidding me, right?>

and

<Have we turned the world upside down?>

or

<Have the world been run by trolls?>

what are they "opinions" about, jombar? trolls? or some chess topic? :o)

Feb-12-12  jombar: froggie, you didn't fully quote my post and misrepresenting what I said. LOL!

If you have read a few posts up, you would of known that I said quite a bit on Radjabov being selected for the Candidates.

The frog has turned upside down.

Feb-12-12  frogbert: <froggie, you didn't fully quote my post and misrepresenting what I said.>

wrong, i don't "misrepresent" anything - i'm giving you the perfect chance to <explain> and <elaborate> on the "opinions" you express by saying

<You must be kidding me, right?

Have we turned the world upside down?

Have the world been run by trolls?>

what did you mean to express by the above? i'm simply asking, allowing you to explain everyone <exactly> what you meant.

[before that, you wrote "I guess, for Radjabov, being the top five player in the world right behind Anand - and with a 2785 rating performance - is not good enough (in SOME PEOPLE'S estimation) to be selected for the Candidates." - which i said was an opinion nobody here has expressed; we're done with that part of your post already.]

now, jombar - what was the opinion you expressed with your 3 rhetorical questions? that's an easy question which shouldn't be hard to answer. :o)

Feb-13-12  jombar: I said what I said in my previous posts. It explains itself pretty well.

If you are blind or can't read, it's not my fault.

Feb-13-12  jombar: Had the Candidates organizers chosen "God Naka (2760-ish player)" instead of Radjabov (2780-ish player), the frog wouldn't make one complaint.

: 0

Feb-13-12  MORPHYEUS: Traditionally the host is always given some privilege.

They maybe allowed to field several teams like in the Olympiads,

or weaker local players like in WAZ Tata Steel,

or select the events to be held, like in Asian Games,

or select the schedules and venue,

or even put in place preferred rules in a few cases.

If you ask me this maybe a clever ploy by Kirsan to generate sponsors for the event.

Kirsan may not be crazy after all.

(Except when he claimed, he was kidnapped by aliens!) ;-P

Feb-13-12  MORPHYEUS: Or did somebody forgot how South Africa qualified for the Soccer World Cup?

These kibitz are all directed to <eggman>. I'm not violating ceasefire. :)

Feb-13-12  frogbert: morph, i didn't agree not to discuss your posts/opinions!

see the aronian page for the more general discussion of "organizer nominees". specifically there's a point relating to chronology that i made there.

  King Sacrificer: I think FIDE needs people like frogbert and jombar so we can watch some wrestling instead of chess.
Feb-16-12  jombar: Had Naka been selected instead of Radjabov, not one troll would protest at how unfair and corrupted the organizers are.

Your worship of Naka and hate for Radjabov is very evident.

Let me repeat myself because trolls have a hard time reading and understanding:

Not one of you trolls out there would make a protest at the Candidates organizers had they selected Naka instead of Radjabov. All of you trolls would be celebrating had Naka been selected for the candidates.

But somehow selecting a 2785 rated player Radjabov is highly controversial and the organizers are blamed for corruption. Nothing is controversial about that. Radjabov was a solid choice they made.

Stupid trolls have no brain. They live their lives worshipping Naka at his feet and would sacrifice their lives for the promotion of Naka into the world chess champion.

Naka will NEVER be the world chess champion. Naka will NEVER reach a 2800 rating. Only stupid and silly trolls believe in that fantasy.

Carlsen is and will always be better than Naka.

Radjabov is better than Naka, too. 2785>2770

Mar-01-12  kia0708: Radjabov's girlfriend looks sexy.
What a lucky boy he is. For me she would be a big distraction.
Mar-12-12  brankat: Happy Birthday GM Radjabov!
Mar-12-12  Blunderdome: Happy Birthday!
Mar-12-12  Penguincw: Happy Birthday GM Teimour Radjabov! 0-1 to Garry Kasparov, again?

Kasparov vs Radjabov, 2003

Mar-12-12  Chessmaster9001: Happy birthday, Teimour!
