facts and figures from a chess career

Sochi 2008

Posted by Stefan on September 21, 2008

Radjabov had a good tournament in Sochi’s Grand Prix series event, where he was unshared second, 0.5 from first place. He was well ahead of players like Ivanchuk, Svidler and Karjakin, and behind only Aronian after the latter’s win against Grischuk in the final round. Radjabov played Carlsen’s a6 Dragon against Karjakin and scored a beautiful win after a double exchange sacrifice.

Position after 30. … Nxd5 in Karjakin-Radjabov. White has no good way to defend against Nxc3+ since Rh3 is followed by Nf4:
