Partidazo de la copa del mundo

Teimour Radjabov wins the 2019 FIDE World Cup

Teimour Radjabov, one of the almost forgotten men of modern chess, has scored the greatest triumph of his career by beating top seed Ding Liren in tiebreaks to win the 2019 FIDE World Cup in Khanty-Mansiysk. World Champion Magnus Carlsen called the Azerbaijan grandmaster “an absolutely deserved winner” after Teimour ended a sequence of draws by winning both 5-minute blitz games against Ding Liren. Maxime Vachier-Lagrave said it was “very good to end on a high note” after he snatched third place by outplaying Yu Yangyi in the first two games of day.
