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....
Premium Chessgames Member
  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 :)
Jun-21-09  wordfunph: Happy Birthday GM Gadir Guseinov!
Nov-04-09  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:

Mar-25-11  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.

  Penguincw: Congrats to Gadir Guseinov for his performance at the Dubai Open Blitz Chess Tournament 2015. He placed 2nd behind Fedoseev with 8.5/11.

  Penguincw: Congrats to Gadir Guseinov for his performance at the Nakhchivan Open 2015. He scored 7/9 (+6,-1,=2), and finished in a tie for 1st with compatriot Eltaj Safarli, but was edged out on tiebreaks, which was average rating of opponents (2413 vs. 2504). Guseinov was the 11th seed. Still impressive, considering he got off to a rough start: he lost the first game with white against IM Omid Noroozi (2356), but after a 2nd round draw, finished on a 6.5/7 run.

At 2612, he gained a modest 3.7 rating points, which isn't too bad.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: (this was in July 2018)

Congrats to GM Guseinov for winning the Sant Marti Open. He scored 7.5/9, edging 2nd place by half a point. Was undefeated, and two of his draws were against the 2 runner-ups.

Apr-03-20  lonchaney: Best game of him?
