    Raja seems a fun and a well earned nickname. The surname is however from arabic Rajab meaning respected, regarded, and admired. "ov/ova" is a surname ending used in (ex-)Soviet countries.

    RAJA means KING.. What an Immaculate Title, Classy pitch of timing... Thanks Agad, you went the extra mile to give a 'Simple and Straight' heading notes.!! i were watching the game, awestruck out of my poor end game skill that this might go for draw ( mine 1110 Fide Elo ) n aronin king is moving fast towards the needed position. Then realized tht RAJA played a baseline rally in tennis terms tht he need not move his king much in tht position!!!

    It's regrettable that Rajabov is not part of the Candidates selection. He's clearly on top of his game. In a May 2020 interview, FIDE President Arkady Dvorkovich indicated that Radjabov will be given wildcard for the next cycle in 2022, subject to approval from FIDE Council.[32] en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candidates_Tournament_2020%E2%80%9321

    Teymur Rajabov is like Keanu Reeves - impossible not to like! Deserved win. Second thing I will remember from this tournament is how beautiful games Dubov can create with the white pices. Where some other GMs gladly accepts af 14 move draw as white... Of cause he must work with then to go all out and when to play solid/boring games :)
