Default Radjabov Destroys Anand

Radjabov is amazing! He wiped Kasparov off the board and now Anand!

What a great way to start his chess career!

Uh, he didn't wipe either off the board, look at the games.

What are you? Radjabov's press agent? The games don't show Anand or
Kasparov getting wiped off the board. If your in charge of public
relations then Radjabov should fire you quickly. Looks more like
Anand and Kasparov lost rather than Radjabov won.

With a 2600+ rating his skill is "genuine" enough. But to be able to
rationally say with some confidence that he is better than the top five
the answer is really quite simple. All he has to win enough games to
get his rating higher than theirs.

Two wins against the best won't make it. He also lost today to another
2600 player, so we get to consider that, too. At least if we are
sensible we do.

I agree with Scott, Radjabov isn't frightened of going into sharp positions
where his illustrious opponents are likely to make an error.

both sick and had little sleep those days - I understand now . . .

Right. I want to say that I was impressed by Radjabov's draw against
Leko today (8/7) though. He showed a lot of tenacity in that game.

Give Leko credit for making a mistake or two as well. It was probably
winnable
