Chess Olympiad 2008

Posted by Stefan on November 27, 2008

Radjabov played nine games (and suffered from food poisoning during one of the rounds). He faced five 2700+ opponents and drew all of them except Kamsky, that he won against. Over all he also reached a +1 score and his rating performance was 2713.

For the first 2009 rating list it looks as if Radjabov will be in a group of five players in the 2750s, together with Kramnik, Leko, Aronian and Wang Yue. The five players ahead of them are split in two groups, the 2790s with Topalov and Anand, and the 2770s with Ivanchuk, Carlsen and Morozevich.
