According to general belief, Radjabov - future world champion! At his age, such an impressive game and such brilliant success did not show, it seems, none of the clan 'great'. Spring Teimur turned only 15 years old, and the glory of the new Baku genius thunders around the world for more than a year - and the glory of this did not come out of nowhere. Baku: Do not you think that this is a real city of champions? From there came such chess players, as Makogon, Bagirov and, actually, the 13th World Champion Garry Kasparov. So that Radjabov has good guidance.
With peers Taimur almost does not matter, though, and managed to casually become a champion of Europe among young men, fought mainly with adults - hence the unprecedented rigidity and 'correct' style for such a young age. Another Radjabov very hungry for the game: look at ICC, . and you are sure to meet there 'Velimirovic' or 'murderer': The latest moniker is well suited to the chess-style of our young hero: smart, . lightning, . does not forgive mistakes and generally, . says our expert Shipov, . cool 'Spieler',
. Can not ignore the personal qualities of young Bakunian - stunning concentration, composure, ability to tune in to the fight. Over the past few months Taimur uslilsya in the debut, which makes it even more dangerous enemy. Radjabov justifies issued advances. His rating is growing rapidly. Priterevshis in dense company in Dos Hermanas, Teimour without a shadow of timidity joined the fight with chess legends back in Buenos Aires, where he told the second place. Only really became nuisance for the unfair decision Taimur judges at the last FIDE world championship. But already in Pamlone where Radjabov was again second, from Baku proved that grieve about it the rest of his life, he clearly does not intend.
With such players like Ivanchuk, do not fear for the future of chess! I remember the phrase: Garry Kasparov said at the beginning, in Holland: 'I am glad that in Wijk aan Zee guys in Baku twice beat the guys in India! ". Who could know that in just six months, "the guys" vstretyatsya in the final of the prestigious tournament? It would not have formed the fight, waiting for us to be extremely fascinating spectacle.
