    I am constantly amazed that great players set tremendous tricky and sometimes subtle traps for their opponents who are equally talented and sniff them out. I would fall to every trick and tactic even is someone pointed them out. Rajabov is playing in great style, do we know anything more about the continuation of the Candidates tournament? Hopefully Rajobov can be a part of the conclusion. Thank you Agad.
