Teimur Radjabov: "Being the World Champion has its own privileges"

The fourth round has been commenced in the ShamkirChess 2018 Super Tournament in the memory of Vugar Hashimov. The Azerbaijani grand master played a draw with the World Champion Magnus Carlsen.

Fighting with white pieces, Radjabov has talked about his game in the press conference: “We cannot talk about the game much. Due to the repetition of the moves, draw was inevitable. If the moves are being repeated, there is no any need to waste time. I believe that the main competence is ahead”.

Saying the ShamkirChess 2018 Super Tournament has been organized in a high level, the Azerbaijani grand master stated that, the final of the game will be very interesting in terms of the large number of draws.

The World Champion Magnus Cralsen has come to Shamkir with his own cook. To the question of the journalist “Have you ever thought about taking your own cook to any tournament”, Teimur answered like that: “The title of the World Champion is quite different. Being the Champion has its own privileges. Certainly, if the player is a world champion, he can provide this kind of options for himself. I have never thought about it. There has never been any need. Right now, I really pay attention to my diet. I try to avoid food high in calories as I have some extra kilos. For instance, I try not to eat kebab or this kind of dishes. Generally, it is very important to pay attention to the diet. I have never thought about going somewhere with a cook in the future, even.
