More About Teimour Radjabov

Teimour Radjabov will participate in Corsica international festival which is scheduled for May. French sponsors will also organize rapid match between Teimour and Norwegian GM Magnus Carlsen in order to promote chess in Corsica.

Meanwhile, Radjabov and GM Shakhriyar Mamedyarov had a joint seance for amateurs in National Park in Baku. Also Linares Mayor was quoted in the title: "I promised to invite Teymour Radjabov to Linares", but we can't read the news because Azeri agency is asking for credit card.

Also interesting is Teimour's earlier comment about his loss against Levon Aronian at Corus: "I was very tired at the game with Aronian. I decided to play carefully. Unfortunately, the wish to win showed itself. On the other hand, Topalov won Anand. So I tried to risk and win. I have always played for win at the game with Aronian. But this risk frustrated the plans. I was not upset for losing the game as I lost it." It seems like games against Armenians are causing specific tension.
